  • Becki Bach Simmons

    Becki Bach Simmons

    An eight-time All-American -- the most possible for divers – Bach is one of the most-decorated performers in Oakland University swimming and diving history. The 1992 John Glenn graduate placed ninth in the state as a senior then blossomed at the next level. She won the GLIAC diving championship all four years on the 3-meter board and added a fifth title on the 1-meter board, setting Oakland records in each event. She placed among the top-10 in the nation in both dives each season, soaring to as high as third on two occasions. Bach helped her team capture two NCAA Division II national championships and post two national runner-up finishes. She was inducted into the Oakland University Hall of Fame in 2009.

  • Traci Morin

    Traci Morin

    Few area players have taken their volleyball talents further than Morin, who starred at John Glenn and Western Michigan University then delivered a successful professional career. The 1996 Glenn grad was a three-time all-NEMC first-teamer and earned all-state as a senior.

    The 6-foot-1 middle blocker left a legacy at WMU, where she still ranks among the program’s top-10 in seven career stats, including 3.38 kills per set, 4.39 points per set, 406 total blocks and a .345 attack percentage. She garnered all-MAC honors three times, including first-team accolades as a senior in 2000. She earned invites to join the U.S. Olympic Training Center and the Pan-Am Games training team. She went on to play professionally in Austria for two years before competing in the Midwest Professional Volleyball Association and on the Extreme Volleyball Professional Tour.
