Sophie’s Swan Song starts with some awards

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Sophie Cunningham named first-team All-SEC; Cierra Porter, Akira Levy get honored, too.

For the third-straight season, Sophie Cunningham was named to to the All-SEC First Team, and she was also a first-team AP All-SEC selection for the second-consecutive season.

From the release on

With her third All-SEC First Team honor, Cunningham is the first player in program history to earn All-Conference First Team honors in three consecutive seasons. The SEC’s active career scoring leader with 2,082 points, Cunningham is currently averaging 17.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. Her 72 three-pointers rank fifth in a single season in program history.

Finally, Akira Levy was named to the freshman All-SEC team. Levy averaged 4.8 points and 2.1 rebounds per game before her season ended prematurely with a knee injury last week.

Miklus got to wrestle in front of his father on senior night in Ames — against Missouri, nonetheless — a week ago.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to Wilie and his family.
