Press Release MSSU:

The Missouri Southern men's track and field team have had two named to the Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District team as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) today. 


To be considered for the honor, an athlete must maintain at least a 3.30 cumulative GPA, while participating in at least 50 percent of his team's events. Freshman and first-year transfers are not eligible. Both Fraley and Polizzi was going up against athletes from the MIAA, as well as the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference and the Great American Conference. 

Fraley is one of the most decorated student-athletes ever at Missouri Southern. A native of St. Robert, Mo., Fraley earned both the Indoor and Outdoor MIAA High Point Award at the MIAA Track and Field Meets this season. He won the outdoor 100m, the 200m and was the anchorman on the 4x100m relay team that earned All-MIAA honors for finishing third. 

In the indoor season, Fraley was the MIAA champ in the 60m and the 200m, while anchoring the team that set the indoor mile relay school record. Fraley now owns the indoor 60m, 200m, 400m and mile relay records, while also owning the outdoor 100m, 200m, 400m and 4x100m school records. 

But his contributions don't stop on the track. Fraley carries a 3.56 GPA in biology at MSSU and has been a member of the MSSU Dean's List, while also being named to the MIAA Academic Honor Roll every semester in attendance. He has also been honored as a track coaches Academic All-American, as well and has been a three-time MIAA Scholar-Athlete. 

Polizzi, a native of Limburg, Germany, has been a mainstay amongst the MSSU throwers in his career at MSSU. An All-MIAA performer and NCAA qualifier as a freshman in the discus, Polizzi finished tenth at the NCAA Championships, narrowly missing on All-American status that season. An All-MIAA honoree this season in the outdoor discus, he has qualified for outdoor nationals and is competing this weekend.

He has 30 top five finishes in his career, including two wins in the discus. He is a four-time MIAA Academic Honor Roll Member, MIAA Scholar-Athlete and four-time MSSU Dean's List member.
