Following the season, a program-best six players received All-SLC honors, including four first-team selections.
Wooten comes to SFA from Lee College, where she served as the head coach and led the Rebels to a runner-up finish in 2011 NJCAA Championships, finishing only four points shy of the national title. Wooten and the Rebels led the nation in All-Americans placing three of its players on the NJCAA Division I All-America squad.

Wooten was a four-year letterman at Purdue, where she played No. 1 singles and doubles and posted 116 combined wins during her career. During her senior season in 2009 she recorded 41 wins, and placed sixth on Purdue's all-time single-season doubles' wins list.
