Justin Walters

JACKSON, Tenn. -- Just two days away from her WNBA debut with the San Antonio Stars, Heather Butler has another title to add to her resume: Ohio Valley Conference Female Athlete of the Year.

The Medina native finished her career at UTM as the OVC's all-time leading scorer with 2,865 career points. That point total ranks Butler at 16th on the NCAA’s all-time scoring list.

Butler will receive her award at the League’s annual Honors Brunch on May 30 in Nashville.
