The Buena Vista Athletics Hall of Fame welcomed four new members on Saturday, September 10 during halftime ceremonies of the BVU home opener against Concordia-Moorhead inside of J. Leslie Rollins Stadium. The Class of 2011 includes Megan Coe '95, Teresa Breyfogle '97, Jay Huff '97 and Andrea (Royster) Adams '98.
Coe is most remembered for her time on the softball diamond for BVU where she was a four-time letterwinner, three-time All-American, three-time First Team All-Iowa Conference selection, and a starter for a program which posted 117 victories over four years, including a school-record 33 in 1994. She played on three IIAC Championship teams (1992, 1994 and 1995), two Regional Championship teams (1992 and 1994) and the NCAA National Runner-up team in 1992. She set IIAC records for batting average in 1993 and RBI in 1995. During her sophomore season in 1993, she led the team and posted career-highs in average (.476), doubles (13), runs scored (42) and struck out only twice in 117 at-bats. She remains the program’s single-season record holder for stolen bases (17 in 1994) and is tied atop the list in runs scored and doubles.
In addition to her time on the field, Coe was also a four-time letterwinner in volleyball and was a Second Team All-Conference selection as a senior. She remained the last all-conference selection for the program until 2003.
Breyfogle was a stand-out in track and field and also competed in basketball for the Beavers, lettering four times in each sport. She was a six-time NCAA All-American in the high jump, including three top-three finishes, while capturing the NCAA Outdoor Championship in 1996 when she leaped 5’ 7 ¼” to win by two inches. She also captured Iowa Conference Outdoor Championships in the same event from 1995-97, including a school-record leap of 5’ 7 ½” in 1995, while taking third in 1994. She also excelled in the classroom and was named to the United States Track Coaches Association (USTCA) All-Academic Team in 1997.
On the court, she was voted as the team’s Most Improved Player in 1994 and 1996 and was tabbed the Best Defensive Player in 1997. She was also a member of three straight Iowa Conference regular season championships (1995-97), as well as the “Sweet 16” team as a senior.
Huff became one of the most prolific heavyweights in program history during his four years on campus. Wrestling for Hall of Fame Coach Al Baxter, he posted 14 straight wins to begin his career en route to 109 overall. He was a four-time Iowa Conference Tournament Finalist, winning three straight individual titles to close his career, while also qualifying to the national championships all four seasons. As a junior in 1995, Huff was named the IIAC MVP and captured the national title with a thrilling 3-1 overtime victory, ending his season with 34 straight wins. His only loss that season was a 6-4 setback to John Degel from the University of Iowa in the third match of the year. As a senior, he went 26-4 and placed fifth at the NCAA Championships. He won 26 of his career matches by pin and also tallied more than 200 career takedowns.
Adams also starred on the softball diamond for the Beavers as a first baseman/designated player and was a four-time all-conference performer, two-time All-American, while starting for a team that captured back-to-back conference championships in both 1995 and 1996. In addition to her play on the field, she was recognized for her efforts off of it by being named a First Team CoSIDA Academic All-American as a senior, while also being named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-Academic Team all four years.
She turned in one of the best single-seasons for a hitter in school history in 1998 when she finished her final campaign hitting .486 with 13 doubles, 11 home runs, 46 RBI and a slugging percentage of .924. Following the year, she was named First Team All-Region and was a First Team All-American selection.
Following the game, the inductees were then able to give their respective induction speeches in front of friends and family as part of the formal Hall of Fame banquet later that evening inside of the Siebens Forum.
