CHICAGO – Saint Xavier University Athletics has formed a partnership with World Hyundai in Matteson, Ill., to honor a different Cougar athlete each month based on their performance in their respective sport for the previous month. The SXU Office of Sports Information plans to accumulate statistics and honors for all of its athletes in season to determine eligible candidates for the monthly award. SXU Athletics plans to announce the selected athlete on its website and social media platforms at the beginning of each month starting on Monday, October 1, and the athlete will also be recognized publicly at a future Saint Xavier University Athletics home event.
"We are very excited about this opportunity to honor one of our own athletes each month and very thankful to World Hyundai for contacting us about this idea," said Rob Huizenga, SXU Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Information. "There are so many talented athletes at this University and there are times when some of them do not get the attention they deserve. I believe this award will help bring their accomplishments to the forefront and give them a chance to be recognized for a job well done."
