Volleyball senior leads league advisory group
Volleyball senior MaryKate Imrie was named president of the Horizon League’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for the upcoming academic year.
Imrie was vice president last year. She was also elected president of UIC’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for the second straight year.
“I look forward to having great dialogue and leading the agenda for the student-athletes in our conference,” Imrie said, adding that she plans to emphasize student activities and community service.
After the 2012 volleyball season, Imrie was voted the team’s Most Valuable Player for her role in helping the Flames reach the Horizon League title game for the first time since 2006.
She paced the conference in assists per set with an average of 11.20 and earned honorable mention accolades on the AVCA’s All-Midwest Region team.
Her performance on the court is matched by her dedication in the classroom. She is a member of the 2012 Horizon League Fall All-Academic team and the conference’s Academic Honor Roll. She received this year’s Chancellor’s Student Service and Leadership award, along with teammates Sara Sternard and Justine Garcia.
“MaryKate is an exceptional leader and exemplifies the meaning of student-athlete,” said Christine Halstead, Horizon League director of student-athlete affairs.
“She will represent the very best of the Horizon League.”
