ASU intramural women’s basketball team Vixen fell just short of a national championship and finished as national runner-up at the 2019 National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) National Basketball Tournament in Wichita, Kan.

This marks only the second time an ASU women’s team has finished this high at the national basketball tournament. Individually for Vixen, Jacie Klose of Haskell and Shannon Thompson of Seguin were selected to the 2019 NIRSA All-America Team, which features only the top six players at the national tournament. Also competing for Vixen were Ryana Butler of Comfort, Lindsey Englehart of Aztec, N.M., Kaylee Hodnett, Taylor Hoelscher and Emery Phillips of San Angelo, Jessica Suarez of Pflugerville, and Emma Thompson of Midland.
