Student-Athlete of the Week for April 14: Oarabile Babolayi, Track & Field

Missouri State junior Oarabile Babolayi had a record breaking weekend competing at University of Arkansas' John McDonald Invitational. Babolayi not only set a personal record, but bested her existing Botswana national record in the finals of the 100m hurdles. She finished with a time of 13.72, moving her into fifth in the conference in the event.  Babolayi also recorded a third place finish in the 400m hurdles with her season best time of 1:00.78, also jumping her into fifth in the MVC. In her final event of the weekend, Babolayi ran the second leg of the 4x400m relay and helped the Bears record the fastest time of all 2015 Missouri Valley Conference 1600m relay teams. Missouri State's 3:41.07 is over three seconds faster than the next Valley school's time.
