Guy earns fourth straight GLVC Scholar Athlete award
University of Southern Indiana senior Johnnie Guy, a North Harrison High School alum, was named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Scholar Athlete of the Year for men’s track and field, according to an announcement from the league office.
Guy is earning his fourth straight GLVC Scholar Athlete of the Year award after earning the honor in cross country in 2014, in track and field in 2015 and once again in cross country in 2015.
A three-time first-team Academic All-American, Guy completed his historic career at USI by racking up four All-American awards on the track this spring. He earned first-team All-America honors in the indoor 3,000 meters and 5,000 after finishing sixth and third, respectively, in the events at the NCAA Division II Indoor Championships in March.
Guy garnered first-team All-American honors in the outdoor 5,000 and 10,000 after finishing fifth and fourth, respectively, in the events at the NCAA II Outdoor Championships in May.
USI’s first-ever three-time Academic All-American, Guy concluded his career as the Screaming Eagles’ all-time leader with 16 athletic All-American honors. He won a total of 13 GLVC titles, including three cross country championships, five indoor titles and five outdoor crowns.
The 2013 Midwest Region Cross Country Runner of the Year, Guy was named the 2015 and 2016 Midwest Region Outdoor Track Athlete of the Year. He finished his career at USI with 21 All-Midwest Region awards and 14 All-GLVC accolades and was USI’s Male Student-Athlete of the Year in 2013-14 and 2015-16.
Guy, who amassed a 3.65 grade-point average in engineering, captured the national championship in the 10,000 as a sophomore in 2014 before finishing second in the indoor 5,000 as well as the 10,000 as a junior in 2015.
The seven-time Academic All-GLVC honoree also is USI’s first-ever four-time GLVC Scholar Athlete of the Year award winner. He is bringing home the third GLVC Scholar Athlete of the Year award for men’s track and field after capturing the fourth such honor for men’s cross country in the fall.
