UIS has a new Athletics Hall of Fame and the first class of inductees have been announced. The inaugural class includes longtime Athletic Director and soccer coach Aydin Gonulsen.
His 1986 NAIA National Champion men's soccer team was also selected. Gonulsen also had two other national titles at UIS.
Other inductees include soccer player Elias Shehadi, tennis player Carla Mills and Harold Christofilakos, a friend of the Prairie Stars who was a charter member of the school's booster club.
The induction ceremony will be this October, during the UIS Homecoming. An advisory panel of campus and community members made the selections.
