Olympia inducted into Stanford Athletic Hall of Fame

Olympia Scott  is one of the eight Stanford athletes who were inducted into the Stanford Athletic Hall of Fame on Friday night.  She is the ninth women's basketball player to be so honored.

This is her Hall of Fame bio:

Olympia Scott ’98, women’s basketball: Scott, one of the key figures during Stanford’s three Final Four runs in the mid-90s, finished her Cardinal career ranked among the top 10 of numerous statistical categories. Upon graduation Scott ranked second in field-goal percentage (53.4), fifth in rebounds (753) and seventh in points scored (1,524). Those numbers remain high on the Cardinal all-time lists today, with her field-goal percentage seventh, rebounding total 11th and scoring total 13th. A two-time All-Pac-10 selection, Scott was named to the 1997 NCAA West Regional All-Tournament Team en route to being named All-America honorable mention from the Associated Press.

Scott went on to participate in the 1997 World University Games, winning a gold medal with Team USA in Sicily, and in 1998 was selected to represent Stanford at the inaugural WBCA All-Star Game.
