1. Athletics Department Wins Bronze Award from NACMA

[“I was very excited when first I heard that we were nominated for this very prestigious award and I was very proud and humbled by winning the 2009 Bronze award for Radio Commercial. This award is not an award for one department or for one person this award is shared by numerous people that have helped tremendously in this effort including: Sam Baker (Athletics Director), coach Chris Hatcher and Chris Blair. Without their guidance and help this award would not have been possible,” said Director of Eagle Sports Marketing Brent Jones.]


2. Ranking the nonconference schedules: The ACC

[Springfield centerfielder Jim Rapoport beat a grounder to short in the fourth inning for a one-out single then stole second base. He scored from second when a wild pitch skipped off the plate between catcher Flint Wipke's legs and bounced to the home on-deck circle for a 3-1 Cards lead.]

Price has the most NCAA Division I coaching experience among the candidates - 145 coaches applied for the job - but he resigned after last season ended. The NCAA began an investigation of GSU's program the day after Price resigned. Price was a finalist for an assistant coaching job at the University of South Florida two weeks ago, according to the Pensacola News-Journal.]


5. Vasher led area in goals, assists

[Vasher ran cross country the past two seasons for Richmond Hill. She said she might attempt volleyball in the fall. "I've always had the hope to eventually play college soccer," she said. "I'd really like to play at Georgia Southern."]
