Skyhawk SS Terry
gains dual honors

UT Martin shortstop Cody Terry was named the recipient of the Outstanding Sportsmanship Award and the Bob Carroll Male Athlete of the Year honor on Monday night at UTM’s sixth annual Senior Athlete Night in the Duncan Ballroom in the Boling University Center.
Terry, a St. Louis native and the son former Cardinal Scott Terry, has had success on and off the playing field.
While ranking amongst the top-10 in several career categories on the diamond, he currently sports a 3.86 grade point average and has been recognized on the Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll for three years.
Terry is baseball program’s all-time leader in runs scored, doubles, assists and at-bats.
This season, Terry is currently batting a career-best .335 and has swiped a career-high nine stolen bases.
He has hit safely in 32 out of 41 games and slammed a two-run walk-off homer against Purdue on March 13.

UTM’s Montague
is top lady athlete

UT Martin senior volleyball player Lauren Montague was honored with Bettye Giles Female Athlete of the Year on Monday night at UT Martin’s Sixth Annual Senior Athlete Night.
In the fall, she wrapped up her career at UTM by becoming just the seventh player in school history to rack up 1,000 career kills.
Later, she joined the top 10 ranks in digs — becoming just the third player in UT Martin volleyball history to rank in the top 10 of those two statistical categories.
In addition to that, the Normal, Ill. native tied the all-time record for kills in a single-match when she recorded 26 against SIU Edwardsville on Nov. 7, 2009. A four-time Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll recipient, Montague sports a 3.75 Grade Point Average.

Westview’s Callins
signs with Earlham

A major knee injury robbed Logan Callins of his senior football season at Westview.
It did not take from him his desire to play at the next level.
Callins recently signed a scholarship to continue his gridiron playing days at Earlham College, a Division III school in Richmond, Ind.
After starting two seasons at inside linebacker for the Chargers, he tore an anterior cruciate ligament in non-contact drills the summer before his senior year last June.
EC went winless last season.
