Area trio cited for academics

CLINTON — Marquel Schultheis of Clinton High School, Brittany Stoll of Northeast and Ryleigh Keeney of Preston have been selected to the Iowa Girls Coaches Association Academic All-State Volleyball Team.

Schultheis was a two-year starter for the River Queens, who tied for the Mississippi Athletic Conference title her junior season and finished a game out of first place this season.

Keeney was a first-team All-Big East player, while Stoll was an honorable mention all-conference pick.

Student-athletes were selected on the basis of not only volleyball and athletic ability, but performance in the classroom, as measured by grade-point average, as well as overall academic ability, as indicated by ACT and/or SAT scores.

“Marquel is one of the first Academic All-State selections that Clinton volleyball has ever had, so I’m particularly proud of Marquel’s achievement,” Clinton coach Mark Massey said. “As a team, we have been consistently recognized for overall academic achievement, but for Marquel to achieve this individual distinction is truly an honor.

“Marquel is a full participant in many activities at Clinton High School, not just athletics. She is a leader in student government and was a 2012 nominee for CHS homecoming queen. I think that many staff members at CHS would say that Marquel truly exemplifies the achievements and type of student that as a staff we aspire to grow and nurture.

“Marquel is in the top 5 percent of her senior class. Marquel and Shelby Brandt of Bettendorf are the only two volleyball players from the Mississippi Athletic Conference to meet the All-State criteria, so it truly is a very unique honor for Marquel.”

Eighty-five volleyball players from across the state received the honor.

    Minnesota State University-Mankato's football team has ended its boycott of reinstated head coach Todd Hoffner, who successfully fought child pornography charges and other misconduct accusations that removed him from the job for 20 months.

    Hoffner said he assured the players, who refused to take the practice field Wednesday, that interim coach Aaron Keen, who led the team in Hoffner's absence, will continue in a major role with the team.
