About Marshevet
Hooker is a versatile 100 and 200 meter sprinter and long jumper who has run on four world or Olympic teams for Team USA, and helped to earn a world gold medal in the 4x100m in 2011 in Daegu. In June 2006, Myers elected to forgo her final season of collegiate eligibility to pursue a professional track and field career. An eight-time All-American, left UT as one of the most decorated student-athletes in the program's history. She made her mark as one of the top athletes in collegiate track and field during the 2005 outdoor season, when she helped Texas to its fourth NCAA outdoor title. Hooker became UT's third NCAA 100-meter champion and its first since 1991, when she claimed the event in 11.14 seconds. At Southwest High School Hooker was a five-time 5A state champion. She grew-up as a self-professed tomboy who was a three-sport athlete and also played football and raced boys in the streets. Hooker comes from an athletic family. Both her mother, Marvetta, and her father, Ricky, played basketball for St. Mary’s University in San Antonio. Ricky Hooker went on to be drafted by the San Antonio Spurs. Hooker’s younger sister, Destinee, is a two-time NCAA Champion in the high jump and professional volleyball player who is set to compete for Team USA in London. Both sisters competed in the 2008 Olympics. Is an active volunteer with young women.
