Welch, who voted first team all-league last year, scored in double figures in all 30 games this season with her career-high 36 points coming at No. 23 Missouri early in the season. It was one of 18 games in which she topped 20 points.
For Vogelpohl, this is her first appearance on the all-defensive team. She recorded 76 steals to rank second in the league with a 2.5 average. She also was 11th in rebounding (6.6).
“Emily plays with an extreme amount of heart and hustle,” Merriweather said. “We are elated that others have recognized the impact she has for our own team on the defensive end. This honor is very well deserved.
I am confident that I speak for both of them when I say neither of them would have received this recognition without the support of their teammates,” she added. “We are all very proud of their accomplishment.”
