    INDIANAPOLIS – Sophomore Lukasz Adamczyk received the Elite 89 award during the NCAA men’s gymnastics banquet in Norman, Okla. The honor recognizes a model student-athlete, one who has reached the championship level, while also achieving a top academic standard.

    “Lukasz is both an incredibly talented gymnast, as well as a hard working student,” head coach Charley Nelson said. “For him to receive this award is not only an amazing individual accomplishment, but also a great award for UIC as a university. To qualify to day two of the NCAA Championships, as well as being the Elite 89 award winner has been rewarding.”

    The Elite 89, an award founded by the NCAA, is given to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average (GPA), who is participating in the NCAA championship.

    Adamczyk, only a sophomore, garnered the honor based on a 4.0 grade-point average while double majoring in Spanish and bioengineering. Athletically, the sophomore has been ranked as high as third on the pommel horse, the event he competed in at NCAAs, during the season.

    Adamczyk, along with eight of his teammates earned NCAA berths to the championship meet in Norman, Okla., where three, including Adamczyk advanced to day two of the meet, where he posted a 14.250 to tie for 24th place.
