Four alums will be inducted into the Illinois State Athletics Percy Hall of Fame during Homecoming. They are Tim Glover ’14, Brittany Smith ’14, Kevin Tokarski ’12, and Julie Morgan, M.S. ’94.

Smith also competed in track and field, where she dominated the throwing circle. A 10-time NCAA All-American, Smith was an MVC champion twice and also competed in the 2012 U.S. Olympic trials.
Tokarski played baseball and was the Illinois State Athlete of the Year for the 2009-2010 season. He set six single-season records, and was honored in 2011 as the MVC Joe Carter Player of the Year.
Morgan was head volleyball coach from 1987 to 1999. During her years at the helm, the team won six MVC Conference titles and made eight NCAA postseason appearances.
