Thurston is named to the team for the second straight season, after being tabbed honorable mention in 2015.

She opened her senior season with a pair of top-five finishes, including a second place finish at the Gonzaga-Idaho Dual. She boasts a 3.96 GPA as an Accounting major.
Fishburn is a Computer Engineering major with a 3.97 GPA. He had two top-10 finishes this season and placed 23rd at the West Coast Conference Championships.
