Feb. 6, 2013
MILWAUKEE - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will induct five former student-athletes into the Bud K. Haidet Athletics Hall of Fame next Saturday.
Nick Gretz, Antou Jallow, Josha (Krueger) Kruvand, Jerry Stern and Maria Viall will be officially welcomed to the Hall of Fame during ceremonies at the Milwaukee Athletic Club. The event begins at 10 a.m., prior to the UWM men's basketball game that evening against Wright State. Tickets for the Hall of Fame event are available through the UWM Ticket Office for $20.
Jallow is one of the best men's soccer players to ever wear the Black and Gold. He led the Panthers to the NCAA Tournament in all four of his seasons, winning Horizon League Player of the Year honors twice (2002, 2004) while earning First-Team All-League honors three times. He was also an NSCAA All-American and an ESPN Academic All-American.
He set school records with 53 points and 24 goals in 2002 and then finished his career as UWM's and the Horizon League's all-time leading goal scorer with 60 goals. He tallied a league-best 18 goals as a senior and ended his career with 133 career points, good for second all-time in school history.
Jallow was drafted by San Jose in the MLS SuperDraft and played professionally with Gefle IF of the Swedish Premiership.
