Johnson Named MSU's Top Female Athlete

SPRINGFIELD, Mo--Missouri State junior volleyball star Lily Johnson was named the top female student athlete of the year. In our Bear Nation report, Johnson is the first Missouri State woman to win this award three straight years.


          
And since the award was started in 1981, only four athletes have won it twice, including Jackie Stiles.


  
Lily Johnson was the first volleyball player to earn All-American honors both athletically and academically in the same year.


          
Soccer player Laura Ketzer and swimmer Shawna Elsey share the scholar athlete of the year award that was announced Monday as well.
