DENVER, Colo. – UMKC women’s basketball players Ericka Mattingly (Wichita, Kan.) and Leilah Vigil (Montbello, Colo.) received All-WAC selections and awards for their play in the 2018-19 season, the conference announced today. Mattlingly would go on to receive First-Team All-WAC, All-Defensive Team and All-Newcomer Team in her first season with the Roos. Vigil would garner the first Freshman of the Year award in UMKC history with her play during the 2018-19 campaign.

Mattingly, a junior college transfer from Butler Community College, delivered a historical season for UMKC as she finished second in points (19.0), first in assists (6.1) and first in steals per game (3.2) in the WAC. She is one of seven players in the nation to have multiple triple-doubles on the year and ranks in the top 50 for multiple offensive categories in regards to NCAA standings. The junior guard is in the top 5 in scoring for a single season in Roos’ history in her first year.

Mattingly is the first player since Elise O’Connor back in the 2012-13 season (Summit League) to have been awarded a First Team All-Conference selection.  

Vigil, a freshman out of Montbello, Colo., delivered an exciting freshman campaign which included averaging a double-double in WAC play (12.3 points and 10.5 rebounds per game). The freshman would record 13 double-doubles on the season, the most in the WAC this season.

Both players led the way for UMKC earning its first 15-win season since the 2009-10 season and its highest seed ever in the WAC Tournament (No. 4 seed). The Roos will be playing No. 5 seed Utah Valley on Wednesday, Mar. 13th at 4:30 p.m. CT at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.

Below are the All-WAC Teams voted on by the head coaches of all nine programs.
