UPDATE: UIndy also has won the GLVC Commissioner’s Cup for the second straight year. Read about it here.
The University of Indianapolis again has asserted its athletic prowess by winning its fifth consecutive Great Lakes Valley Conference All-Sports Trophy — and in decisive, record-setting style.
The traveling trophy is awarded each year to the GLVC institution posting the best all-around performance in the league’s 20 sponsored sports. UIndy’s 203 points for 2015-2016 is the highest in the 38-year history of the award, and its 31.5 margin over second-place Lewis also is a new conference record. The Greyhounds have claimed the honor eight times in total.
The Greyhounds’ performance this year included GLVC titles in baseball, football, women’s golf, softball and men’s tennis; runner-up finishes in men’s golf, volleyball, men’s indoor and outdoor track and field and women’s indoor track and field; and third-place finishes in men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s soccer and women’s outdoor track and field.
