GLIAC 2008 finaL GLiac woMen’s soccer sTandinGs

Grand Valley State competes in the Great lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GlIAC) and NCAA Division II. The GlIAC consists of twelve colleges and universities located in michigan and ohio. The GlIAC was founded in 1972. During the two years previous to the GlIAC’s founding, several attempts were made to create a new NCAA College Division conference. In 1971, the Great lakes Athletic Conference was formed, but plans for the new conference were put on hold and several of the participating schools subsequently withdrew their support. The idea for a new conference did not die, however, and since 1972-73 the GlIAC has been a leader in the advancement and promotion of intercollegiate athletics for men and women. Grand Valley was a charter member of the GlIAC, joining lake Superior State, Northwood and Saginaw Valley State to form the conference in 1972. Since then, the GlIAC has expanded throughout the Great lakes region. The GlIAC crowns champions in a total of 19 sports. In addition to women’s soccer, the GlIAC decides titles in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, men’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor track and volleyball. The GlIAC awards the President’s Cup every year for excellence in all GlIAC sponsored sports. The lakers have won this cup for 11 consecutive years: 1998-1999, 1999-2000, 20002001, 2001-2002, 2002-2003, 200304, 2004-05, 2005-06, 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09.
