Soccer player GAVIN GLINTON ’01, volleyball player SAMANTHA HARDWICK ’02, cross country and track runner PHILIP LOCKWOOD ’85, and figure skater MATT SAVOIE ’02 were inducted into the Bradley Athletics Hall of Fame on February 16.
Glinton is the only four-year All-American in Bradley Athletics and MVC men’s soccer history. He is the only four-time, first-team all-conference selection in MVC men’s soccer history and Bradley’s all-time leading scorer.
Hardwick is the only Brave to accumulate more than 3,000 assists, 1,000 digs, and 500 kills while leading the Braves to a pair of 20-win seasons.
Lockwood set a 10,000-meter school record in 1982. A lifelong distance runner and founder of Mercury Sports, he is a past president of IPICO Sports, which provides high-tech timing and tracking systems.
Savoie competed on the international figure skating circuit, earning first alternate on Team USA for the 2002 Olympic Games. He placed seventh in Men’s Singles Figure Skating in the 2006 Winter Olympics.
Bradley Athletics and adidas announced in February a partnership running through the 2017–18 season. Men’s basketball and baseball will join the partnership in the 2014–15 season.
All 15 Bradley intercollegiate teams will wear adidas apparel, shoes, and accessories for games, practices, training, coaching, and other uses. It’s the first time all University teams will have a single clothing and footwear provider.
“The recent development and unveiling of our athletic branding is made even stronger with all our teams wearing the iconic adidas brand,” said Dr. Michael Cross, director of athletics.
The women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country and track, soccer, and women’s tennis teams already are using adidas gear. Fans also will have an opportunity to purchase adidas items.
