Christine Blonski to be given Hy Popuch Award
The Marquette University M Club has announced Christine (Kennedy) Blonski as the winner of the Hy Popuch Award, given to the student-athlete alumni organization's person of the year. She will be honored during the men's basketball game against Xavier on Wednesday, Dec. 27 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center (friends can register for the reception here (game ticket required)).
In over 13 years serving on the M Club Board, Blonski was a two-term president and is credited for creating greater integration of former female student-athletes into various M Club events and activities. The former women's basketball player rarely misses a home game at the Al McGuire Center and has pushed the M Club Golf Outing to greater prominence.
