Republic three-sport star Brooke Stanfield will stick around Springfield.

Stanfield signed a letter of intent to play basketball and compete in track and field for Drury University on Wednesday.

The 5-foot-8 forward nabbed first team all-state honors as a junior. Opposing coaches voted Stanfield Central Ozark Conference Large Co-Player of the Year. She averaged 12 points and six rebounds per game for coach Kris Flood’s Tigers.

In track and field, Stanfield has been an All-COC, all-district and all-state choice, finishing sixth in the long jump and fourth in the high jump at the state meet. She holds Republic High School records in the 200-meter dash, the 400-meter dash and the high jump.

“Brooke is another athletic, defensive specialist to go along with this well-rounded class,” Drury basketball coach Molly Miller said. “Her athleticism will be a huge asset at that stretch-4 spot. She plays taller than she looks, with her jumping ability and with the way she runs the floor, and she’s going to be a tough matchup for any team.
“She has great potential to make a huge impact for us, as her ceiling is one of the highest I have seen in this class.”
Stanfield joins Crane guard Lexie Vaught and Owensville’s Hailey Diestelkamp in Drury’s class of women’s basketball signees.
