Mizzou Links, 6-28-07

  • has a nice update on former Mizzou setter Lindsey Hunter and her progress with the USA Volleyball team.
  • Speaking of nice profiles, the Trib has one on Mizzou decathlete Nick Adcock.
  • Meanwhile, Indoor Track All-American Tyler Dailey can add "ESPN the Magazine CoSIDA Academic All-American" to his awards list.
  • Ben Askren is campaigning for ESPY votes...
  • The Post-Dispatch has an interesting story about sickle cell collapse. Nine athletes--including our own Aaron O'Neal--had the sickle cell trait and collapsed and died during workouts in the last seven years.
  • And finally, no great way to segway into this, but former Mizzou gymnast and All-Big XII balance beamer Miranda Boeckman died on June 9 at 22. Here's a discussion about her on Tigerboard. I guess I'm old enough now that I look back with regret on any life that ends that early...bad deal...
