Add another accolade to Mallory Sanner's spectacular sophomore season.

The Seton Hill University junior, who claimed the NCAA Division II javelin championship for the 2013 outdoor track and field season, has been named the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Outdoor Field Scholar Athlete of the Year.

As a sophomore, Sanner carried a 3.77 cumulative grade-point average as an elementary education major with a specialization in special education.

She won the national javelin championship in Pueblo, Colo., with a throw of 162 feet, 2 inches, placing her in the top 10 performances all time in Division II. She is the first Seton Hill student to earn a scholar-athlete of the year award.

Sanner, the 2013 Westmoreland YWCA Sportswoman of the Year, previously was named West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Year and was recognized additionally by the USTFCCA as a member of its all-Academic Track and Field Team.
