Senior Laura Ney was one of seven Great Lakes Valley Conference student-athletes that were named a 2018 GLVC Fall Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Ney was the honoree for her efforts in both the classroom and sport of women's soccer this past fall.
Ney was a first-team all-region (United Soccer Coaches Association) and a first-team member of the GLVC squad. She became the seventh player in Truman history to earn first team all-conference honors for three seasons. She was one of the captains of this year's team that shared the GLVC regular season championship with a 14-4-1 overall record and 9-3-1 league mark. Ney played in 71 career matches during her four-year Bulldog career with 44 of those contests resulting in shutouts of their opponents.
The league and Faculty Athletic Representatives from each member institution select one student-athlete in each Conference sport to be designated the GLVC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The award is based upon athletic accomplishments, both team and individual, and academic performance upon which the award is based. Each Conference member has the opportunity to nominate one individual from its team for the award with the nominee having a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.30.
Ney is the first Truman women's soccer player to earn the award and eighth Bulldog overall to garner Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors.
