UNI's Daugharthy receives MVC honors


Eranne Daugharthy of the University of Northern Iowa was selected as one of two Prairie Farms/Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week, Commissioner Doug Elgin announced Wednesday.       

The Valley's Scholar-Athlete program is sponsored by Prairie Farms, Roberts and Hiland Dairies.  On a weekly basis, the Conference honors its student-athletes for their athletic performance for a one-week period and academic success in the classroom. 

A pitcher/infielder for the UNI softball team, Daugharthy, a senior from Ottawa, Kansas, batted .438 with two home runs, eight runs batted in and five runs scored, as the Panthers won four of five games -- defeating Bradley (7-3 and 8-3 on April 27) and Wichita State (2-1 and 10-6 on April 30) and falling to WSU (5-3 on May 1). 

The MVC Softball Player of the Week, Daugharthy, who has a 3.71 cumulative grade-point average in biology, collected a total of seven hits in the five contests.  On April 30, she broke a 6-6 tie with Wichita State by clubbing a walk-off, grand slam to right-center in the bottom of the seventh inning.
