* Quinn Vilneff Earns MVC Leadership & Service Award

Since arriving in Evansville, men’s golfer Quinn Vilenff has exemplified what it means to be a student-athlete in the classroom, on the golf course and in the community. For his efforts, Vilneff earned the Missouri Valley Conference Leadership and Service Award on Friday.

Vilneff has done it all for the Purple Aces in his three years with the program. On the course, he played 82 rounds for the University of Evansville and accumulated the third-best average in school history. His 6,153 strokes equaled out to a 75.04 stroke average.

Three top five finishes highlighted Vilneff’s senior campaign as he led the Aces to team wins at the Don Benbow Invitational and the Bradley Invitational. His top finish as a senior came at the Benbow event in Jacksonville, Fla. where he finished in fourth place.

Last spring, Vilneff garnered All-Conference honors after finishing in 6th place at the MVC Championship. He also won the Elite 18 Award, marking just the second student-athlete in UE history to do so. The honor is given out to the top-18 finisher with the highest GPA.

In the classroom, the Sports Management major posted a 3.91 GPA while his work in the community made a great impact. The native of Canada made the sport of hockey relevant to the city of Evansville. Vilneff volunteered in excess of 400 hours to Swonder Ice Arena as he has been teaching and promoting hockey to the youth in town.

Other endeavors he has taken on include: the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Evansville Arc and a tutor at Vogel Elementary.
