Becky Holden-Elkins was the only student-athlete to come through Shawnee State and play on five different varsity teams. Throughout her five-year Shawnee State career, spanning 1997-2002, Holden-Elkins was a member of the women's basketball, softball, tennis, cross country and soccer teams. Perhaps even more remarkable is that she not only played on five teams but was a key contributor to each, earning All-Conference accolades in basketball, tennis and softball. She played all four years on the women's basketball team and was a member of the 1999 National Championship Team. Holden-Elkins scored 793 career points and set the program's career record for free-throw percentage (81.2%). She played in a total of 119 basketball games, making 67 starts. During her final season, she averaged 11.4 points per game and was named first-team All-AMC. In softball, she was named honorable mention All-Conference during the 1999 season, helping her team to a 36-12 record. She was also a first-team All-AMC performer in tennis during the 2002 season. She was both an NAIA Scholar-Athlete and All-AMC Academic Team member for multiple teams. Holden-Elkins was also a Joe Smith Award recipient, given to the outstanding senior that exemplifies attitude and sportsmanship. She was inducted in 2013.
