NCAA honors MSOE alumnus Logan Andryk
A recent Milwaukee School of Engineering graduate, Logan Andryk, was one of 10 exceptional former student-athletes honored as Today’s Top 10 Award winners during the NCAA’s annual convention.
The Today’s Top Ten award recognizes former student-athletes for their successes on the field, in the classroom and in the community. Recipients completed their athletics eligibility during the 2015-16 academic year and were recognized at the Honors Celebration during the convention, which was held Jan. 18-21 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Andryk, who graduated in May 2016 with a degree in biomolecular engineering, was a four-time All-American for the Raiders, as well as the 2015 National Soccer Coaches Association of America Player of the Year and the CoSIDA Academic All-America of the Year. Andryk is employed by Epic in Verona, Wisconsin where he works as a technical problem solver for laboratory software.
“It was an honor to receive this award from the NCAA and I’m truly thankful to all of the individuals who helped make it possible,” Andryk said. “I’m very proud of what my team and I accomplished over my four-year career as a Raider and I look forward to following the bright future of MSOE athletics. Go Raiders!”
Andryk is only the second NCAA Division III student-athlete to earn both the NSCAA Player of the Year and CoSIDA Academic All-America honors in the same season. As a two-time captain for the men’s soccer team, Andryk completed his career as one of just 31 players in NCAA history to earn All-America honors in each of his four seasons. He holds school records for goals (61), assists (60) and career points (182). He is also one of five players in collegiate soccer history to score 60 goals and record 60 assists. Away from the field, Andryk won a school-sponsored biomolecular engineering design contest as a senior. In addition, he was co-chair of the campus Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
The NCAA Honors Committee, which selects the honorees, is comprised of representatives from member schools and conferences, as well as nationally distinguished former college athletes.
Andryk was honored alongside Elizabeth Aronoff (swimming and diving, Emory); Kendall Coyne (hockey, Northeastern); Taylor Ellis-Watson (track and field, Arkansas); Nicole Hensley (hockey, Lindenwood); C.J. Krimbill (tennis, Case Western Reserve); Haylie McCleney (softball, Alabama); Tiffany Mitchell (basketball, South Carolina); Dak Prescott (football, Mississippi State); and Jason Vander Laan (football, Ferris State).
