Ilitch Business student-athletes receive All-GLIAC recognition for men’s tennis
The Wayne State University men’s tennis team had seven student-athletes named to the GLIAC (Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) All-Academic Excellence Team, which was the most in the conference. Of the athletes honored, four were Mike Ilitch School of Business students.
Student-athletes honored for maintaining a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 were graduate student Niklas Karcz (M.B.A.), juniors Ryan Okonski (global supply chain management) and Dom Spicer (management), along with sophomore Joe Steele (marketing).
Karcz earned his fourth consecutive All-Academic Excellence award since freshmen and first-year transfer students are not eligible. Spicer received All-Academic Excellence recognition for the second consecutive year. Okonski advanced to the Excellence Team after garnering All-Academic honors in 2021. Steele was eligible for the first time this season.
Wayne State recorded the second-most Academic All-GLIAC honorees in school history with 247 during the 2021-22 academic year. WSU has produced 1,817 Academic All-GLIAC recipients over the last decade.
