LakePoint, Ga. - The ASUN Conference published the November 2017 issue of the ASUN Quarterly today, an online magazine highlighting the many accomplishments of the league and its constituents.
The ASUN November 2017 issue completes the quarterly's second year of publication. The ASUN Quarterly is designed to highlight the achievements of its student-athletes, coaches, administrators, faculty, staff, member institutions and past contributors whose efforts have helped shape the conference and its membership. In the eighth issue, the on-line magazine is separated into four different sections to reflect the Beams of the ASUN Conference; Students First, Rise, Connect & Impact.
Kennesaw State Academic & Athletic All-American Jordan Gray pens an article challenging all student-athletes to practice and train harder in order to better themselves and their teammates. The ASUN Quarterly staff also looks into Who's Hot heading into the heart of the 2017 ASUN Fall Championship season.
In the Rise portion of the quarterly, University of North Alabama's Director of Athletics Mark Linder is featured as the Lions prep for their transition into the ASUN Conference for the 2018-19 season. UNA has accrued a substantial amount of success at the Division II level in their history, which has continued under the leadership of Linder and his staff.
Jacksonville's Volleyball program has seen a resurgence this season under Head Coach Julie Darty as the Dolphins sit tied for first in the ASUN. However, if it weren't were for the hospitality of a local ASUN rival, North Florida, the Dolphins would have been without a home court due to damage to Swisher Gymnasium from Hurricane Irma.
Lipscomb's Dr. Lin Garner continues to make an Impact on the Nashville campus after 30 years with the Bisons. The Senior Woman Administrator for the Bisons serves in many roles within the athletic and academic community.
Finally with the ASUN Fall Championship season underway, ASUN staff members Craig Threlkeld and Meagan Edwards are featured as the duo detail improvements for the conference championships.
