Athletics Hall of Fame inducts Galik and Mourtakos
Oct 1, 2015
Simona Galik, ‘02, and Alex Mourtakos, ‘99, were inducted as the 12th class of the Flagler College Athletics Hall on May 14 at Alumni Weekend. The Flagler College Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 2004 to honor student-athletes and administrators who made a major contribution to the intercollegiate sports program.
Simona Galik earned National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) All-America honors in tennis every season she played. Galik was ranked No. 1 in the nation in singles play in 1998 by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. She won the singles competition at the NAIA National Championships as a freshman and boasted a 30-0 record. She returned to the top of the national rankings in singles as a junior, and was selected as the 2001 ITA Senior Player of the Year in the NAIA.
Alex Mourtakos pitched for the baseball team from 1995 through 1999, and is the only pitcher in the history of the program to toss a complete game no-hitter. Mourtakos holds the program’s career strikeout record with 299 and is tied for first for the most starts in a season with 17 back in 1999. He struck out 105 batters as a senior, which ranks second for most strikeouts in a season at Flagler. He is also a member of Flagler All-Decade (1990s) Team.
