Mark Leroux was named Missouri’s men’s golf coach Tuesday.

Leroux moves to MU after coaching the men’s and women’s teams at Austin Peay University. In seven years as coach of the men’s team, he led it to an Ohio Valley Conference championship, as well as the school’s first NCAA Regional appearance, in 2001.

Leroux also received the Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year Award in 2002 and 2003.

Leroux replaced Tim Robyn, who resigned May 3 after six years.

MU TENNIS: Urska Juric was selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-America third team.

With a 3.81 grade point average, Juric is the first MU tennis player to achieve Academic All-American status. A marketing major, Juric also made the academic All-Big 12 Conference team for the second year in a row.

Juric became MU’s first recipient of the ITA Central Region’s Arthur Ashe Award for Leadership and Sportsmanship last month.

MU TRACK: Four freshmen will compete in the Junior National Championships in College Station, Texas, that start Friday. The event is for athletes 18 and younger.

Marcus Mayes and Jimmie Jones will compete in the 800 meters, Melanie Uher is entered in the women’s discus, and Bobby Musil will compete in the men’s discus.

Mayes has the fourth-best qualifying time, and Jones is sixth.

The top three finishers in each event advance to the World Junior Championships in Grossetto, Italy, in July.
