Women's Basketball Maintains Perfect Graduation Rate

Sept. 3, 2008

With the graduation of the Class of 2008, the Loyola College women's basketball team has maintained its 100-percent graduation rate of the seniors to come through the program since Head Coach Joe Logan returned to the College in 2005.

Three players from last season's team finished their degrees and graduated. Tynisha Davis earned her bachelor of arts in finance and Vika Sholokhova received her bachelor of arts in communications.

Meghan Wood, who graduated in 2007 with a bachelor of arts in business administration, completed her master's degree in education administration this year.

"We are very proud of all of our student-athletes for what they have accomplished in earning their degrees," Logan said. "It speaks highly of their dedication and effort to be able to graduate while playing basketball at a high level."

The Classes of 2006 and 2007 featured a total of nine seniors that all completed their bachelor degrees at Loyola making Coach Logan's seniors 12-for-12 in achieving their degrees. They have also helped the Greyhounds to a 51-39 record over the last three seasons.

In addition to the graduated players who have gone on to successful careers, Jill Glessner '07 and Sholokhova have continued to play basketball at the professional level. Glessner was an all-star player for the Nottingham Wildcats in England last year, and Sholokhova will begin her first professional season in Spain in the coming weeks.
