For the third time in her illustrious career at the University of Evansville, Eryn Gould has been recognized for her academic efforts by the Missouri Valley Conference with a spot on the Scholar-Athlete First Team.

The Mt. Carmel, Ill. native earned her second nod on the First Team as she was named to the squad in 2020. Gould was a Second Team honoree in 2019.

A Biology major at UE, Gould stands with a 3.62 GPA. The feat is even more impressive given her efforts on the field. As a senior, she set the Purple Aces single season record for batting average and on-base percentage. Her .418 batting tally eclipsed the previous mark of .408, which was set by Staci Hatz in 1988. Reaching base 56.6% of the time, she surpassed the prior UE mark by over 50 points. Brittany Herald was the previous record holder, finishing at .511 in 2007.

Gould was a First Team All-MVC selection for the third time in her career while being recognized as the league’s Player of the Week on March 22. That week saw her reach base 83.3% of the time in a series victory over Loyola. On a national scale, Gould’s on-base figure and walk average were both in the top 20 in the NCAA. Her batting average and slugging were in the top 60 nationally.

We woke up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, there won’t be any drastic changes this afternoon. Increasing cloud cover will be likely as a cold northerly flow continues ushering in chilly air. Highs won’t be going very far, we’ll likely only reach the mid to upper 30s Tri-State wide. We’re tracking a little bit of winter weather out to our north and west. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with a chance of flurries/light rain. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
