BROOKLYN CENTER - Three former U.S. Olympians headline the Minnesota State High School League's 2015 Hall of Fame class.

But before Neal Broten, Briana Scurry and Carrie Tollefson achieved success at the national and international levels, they left their marks in MSHSL athletic programs.

Broten was a prep hockey standout at Roseau High School before playing with Team USA in the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics.

Scurry was a soccer goalkeeper for Anoka High School before leading Team USA to gold medals in the Olympics and World Cup.

Tollefson was a four-time cross country state champion representing Dawson-Boyd/Lac qui Parle Valley. She was on the 2004 U.S. Olympic team as a middle distance runner, and two years later, won the U.S. National Cross Country Championship.
