Hursey Receives GLIAC Commissioner's Award

Ashland University senior softball player Logan Hursey (Zanesville, Ohio/John Glenn) has received one of 12 GLIAC Commissioner's Awards for the Spring 2011 season. The awards were announced by the conference office today.

The awards, sponsored by Meijer, Incorporated, are presented after the fall, winter and spring athletic seasons to six male student-athletes and six female student-athletes that excel in the classroom and on the field of play.

"We are truly proud of these 12 student-athletes representing the conference for the Commissioner's Award," said GLIAC commissioner Dell Robinson.  "They are a fine example of excellence in the classroom and on the field.  The GLIAC greatly appreciates the support of Meijer for their sponsorship of the 2010 Commissioner's Award. The award and continued support of Meijer is evidence of our pursuit of academic excellence."

This is the 10th time an AU student-athlete has received a Commissioner's Award. The program was initiated in 2007.  Hursey is the fourth female student-athlete from Ashland to be honored.
