Following the success in Heartland Conference play, Vaughan had four student-athletes earn All-Heartland Conference honors, including three first-team selections. Ashleigh Stidman, Arika Araujo, and Morgen Blanchard were named to the first team while freshman Katelyn Gamble was a second-team pick.

Fourteen of Vaughan’s players at Oologah went on to play at the collegiate level and she coached 27 all-conference players, 12 all-region members, and four all-state award winners. Twice, Vaughan was named Region 3 Coach of the Year (2010 and 2012), while she also is a two-time Tulsa 7 Coach of the Year (2010 and 2011). In 2010, she was named the 4A East All-State Coach and honored as the 2012 Tulsa World All-Metro Coach of the Year.
Vaughan enjoyed a standout collegiate career at Oklahoma City University, making three-consecutive trips to the NAIA National Tournament. The Stars won the NAIA National Championship in 1997, were second runner-up in 1998, and made it to the title game again in 1999. Vaughan, a right-handed pitcher, was a two-time Academic All-American at OCU.
The Claremore, Oklahoma native helped the Claremore High School Lady Zebras to a state title during her senior season in 1994 and was named an Oklahoma All-State pitcher-Large East.
