Former Oak Ridge basketball player makes All-America team

Lewis and Clark College senior Kristina Williams, a former Oak Ridge standout, was named to the's All-America first team on Tuesday, making her one of the best five players in Division III women's basketball this season.


Williams received a similar honor from the Women's Basketball Coaches Association last week.

The 5-foot-9 guard averaged a team-leading 18.4 points and 8.9 rebounds for the 25-4 Pioneers.

Williams finished as the all-time leader in scoring since Lewis and Clark's transition to NCAA and she ranks in the top five all-time in career points, rebounds, steals, and assists.

The Northwest Conference MVP helped the Portland, Ore., college to three consecutive trips to the NCAA Division III tournament, including the first in school history in 2010-2011.

She helped Oak Ridge to Sierra Valley Conference titles in 2008 and 2009 and a Sac-Joaquin Section D-II title in 2009.
