Eagleís success rewarded with GLVC honors

University of Southern Indiana softball junior third baseman Nichole Pike (Fairfield, Illinois) and junior pitcher Shannon Emmons (Boonville, Indiana) earned GLVC Player and Pitcher of the Week honors for their performances in USIís 6-0 record against GLVC teams last week.

Pike earned GLVC Player of the Week honors after hitting .611 with six RBIs last week. She also scored seven times and recorded a pair of doubles as well as a stolen base.
