TULSA, Okla. – With a perfect 4.0 GPA in biology, women's soccer player Kaily Cox became just the fifth player in Oral Roberts University history to earn Academic All-America honors.

A staple in the starting lineup on the field, Cox was the first women's soccer player from ORU to earn the distinction after receiving national recognition for successfully cloning the genes of a plant during an internship.

Cox was also selected as an Ultimate Whole Person Champion at the ORU Athletics banquet.  Other Academic All-America honorees include; Sheina Fernandes (VB – 2012), Bob Volk (Baseball - 1977), Buddy Slemp (Baseball - 1978) and David Brown (Swimming - 1987).
