Many Miners named to All-GLVC teams

Several Missouri S&T student-athletes landed all-conference honors from the Great Lakes Valley Conference in the 2009 fall season.


In volleyball, Julie Meyer became the fi rst player from the program since it restarted in 2007 to land a spot on the All-GLVC team, earning a place on the second team. Meyer, a junior in history, led the Lady Miners with a school-record 496 kills, and ranked among the top three in the GLVC in kills and points for the season.
Colleen Conrad earned All-GLVC honors in cross country after placing 13th at the conference meet in October in Louisville, Ky. Conrad, a sophomore in environmental engineering, is the first member of the Lady Miners to land all-conference honors since S&T moved into the GLVC in 2005.
Both of Missouri S&T’s soccer teams were also represented on the All-GLVC squads. The men’s team had two selections — midfielder Brian Kekec, a senior in mechanical engineering, who made the second team, and goalkeeper Pat McNamee, a junior in business and management systems, who was a third-team choice. Melia Miller, a senior in ceramic engineering, was a third-team selection to the women’s squad.

MXene discovery could improve energy storage

In spite of their diminutive size, 2-D titanium carbide materials known as MXenes are “quite reactive” to water, a discovery S&T researchers say could have implications for energy storage and harvesting applications such as batteries, supercapacitors and beyond. Their findings were published in 2018 in the American Chemical Society journal Inorganic Chemistry.

A faster charge for electric vehicles

One drawback of electric vehicles (EVs) is the time it takes to charge them. But what if you could plug in your EV and fully charge it as quickly as it takes to fill up a conventional car with gasoline? Missouri S&T researchers, in collaboration with three private companies, are working to make speedy charging […]
