Complete MVC Scholar-Athlete, All-MVC Teams

ST. LOUIS – Missouri State sophomores Robiann Broomfield and Shavonne Husbands and junior Haley Scott have been named to the 2014 Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete Team for track & field, the league announced on Friday.

The MVC also officially named the all-conference honorees from the MVC outdoor championship in Carbondale, Ill., May 16-18.

In all, 40 men and 46 women were selected for the MVC scholar-athlete teams. Recipients must have maintained a 3.2 grade-point average or better and be at least a sophomore, while placing in the top eight in the MVC indoor or outdoor championships in their given events.

All-MVC recognition is given to student-athletes who place in the top three at the outdoor championship.

Broomfield, a 3.83 student in psychology, won both the long jump and triple jump at the conference outdoor meet with career-best marks of 6.01 and 12.95 meters, respectively. She was third in both events in the indoor championship in March with marks of 5.85 and 12.50 meters.

Husbands, a construction management major with a 3.20 GPA, helped the Bears win the outdoor 4x100-meter relay in a time of 45.21 while running the anchor leg. She was also second overall in the 100-meter dash at the meet in 11.67, as well as second in the 200 meters with a time of 23.48. During the indoor season, Husbands paced MSU to a third-place finish in the 4x400-meter relay in 3:45.26. She was also fourth overall in the 200-meter dash in 24.66.



Scott, who carries a 3.81 GPA in radiography, finished in a tie for sixth place in the high jump with a 1.68 meters during indoor championship to earn a spot on the scholar-athlete team.

The honors for both Broomfield and Scott are the second in as many days. They were part of the Capital One Academic All-District Team for track & field and cross country, released Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Other all-MVC accolades for Missouri State went senior Pernell Joseph (4x100), juniors Chelsey Borders (4x100) and Althia Maximilien (400, 4x100, 4x400) and sophomores Oarabile Babolayi (400 hurdles, 4x400) and Chelsie Horton (4x400).

The Bears finished fourth overall in the MVC outdoor championships with 86 points.
