1. Beville and Geiger Named Scholar Athletes of the Year

[The Georgia Southern Scholar Athlete Awards Banquet was held Monday evening at the President's dining room. Mark Beville and Jessica Geiger were honored as the 2009 Scholar Athletes of the Year for their efforts in the classroom and in athletics.]


2. Softball's Doubleheader with #8 Georgia Changed to a Single Game

[The doubleheader originally scheduled between Georgia Southern and #8 Georgia has been changed to a single game. The Dogs requested the change due to extenuating circumstances.]


3. Eagles look to tune up the bats

[“You’re not going to hit every day and score a lot of runs in bunches every game,” said Georgia Southern coach Rodney Hennon. “There are spurts where the hitting comes and goes, and the one constant that you want to have is pitching and defense. The consistency there is what’s given us a chance this year. We’re going to keep taking the same approach offensively.”]


4. GSU’s Young comes home to roost

[Yet the ebullient Young isn’t deterred, even if it may take three years to get the Eagles to be a championship contender again. “I’m an optimistic guy and I’m very, very confident,” he said. “In my mind, I’m planning on winning next year.”]


5. Clinton LumberKings Snap Skid in 10-2 Thrashing of the Burlington Bees

[Emergency starter Blake Nation, on for a scratched Steven Hensley was solid through four innings. The 6’8” right-hander tossed 4.0 innings in his first career start, allowing only two hits until tiring with none out in the fifth. He served up a two-run clout to Jose Bonilla as Burlington cracked the scoreboard.]


6. Miami Dolphins Add Speedy Undrafted Wideout Chris Williams

[Given his size, speed (mid-4.3 range in the 40-yard dash) and the ten wideouts ahead of him on the depth chart, it's safe to say Williams will be attempting to make the team as a returner. Think of him as this year's Jayson Foster.]


7. College signings: Ebony Carter

[Darlington School senior sprinter Ebony Carter has signed a letter of intent with Georgia Southern University, and will join the Lady Eagles’ track program next fall.]
