Wayland Baptist Flying Queen Kaitlyn Edgemon has been named to the 2022-23 College Sports Communicators (CSC) Academic All-America® NAIA Women’s Basketball Second Team.
The CSC (formerly CoSIDA) academic program recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the court and in the classroom. To be nominated, student-athletes must have at least a cumulative 3.5 grade-point average, must have been enrolled at their current school for at least one year and be a starter or key reserve.
A 5-foot-11 sophomore forward from Littlefield, Edgemon – who is majoring in biology – previously was named to the CSC Academic All-District® team, along with teammate Taryn Shultz.
Edgemon led the Flying Queens in rebounds at 7.0 rpg and was second in scoring at 18.6 ppg while also averaging 3.1 assists. Edgemon was All-Sooner Athletic Conference Third Team last season and SAC Freshman of the Year in 2020-21.
Edgemon ranks 23rd on the Flying Queens’ all-time scoring list with 1,268 points. If she equals this year’s 594 points in her final two seasons remaining, Edgemon would end with 2,456 points, five behind all-time leading scorer Sharla Harrison, who totaled 2,461 from 1985-89.
Edgemon was joined on the Second Team by Zoie Barth of Thomas More (Ky.), Jordan Pyle of St. Francis (Ill.), Molly Schany of Northwestern College (Iowa) and Taya Wilson of Sterling College (Kan.). Making the First Team were Melissa Akullu of Vanguard (Calif.), Claire Austin of Saint Xavier (Ill.), Grace Beyer of University of Health Science (Mo.), Brynley Fitzgerald of Montana Western, and Olivia Sprague of Oregon Tech.
