Meet Brad C. Krygier (MGT ’80), this year’s John J. Schommer Honor I Award recipient. In 1979 Krygier was Illinois Tech’s first individual runner to win a Chicago Collegiate Athletics Conference Championship. He became the first Illinois Tech student-athlete to compete in national championships three years straight, setting a university record for the 8-kilometer race that remained for 29 years. While Krygier achieved his greatest successes in cross-country, his college athletics scholarship was also for swimming, and he competed in both sports for four years, setting four swim records.
