Gue wins Spirit of Service award
HUNTINGTON -- Ashley Gue from the Marshall University softball team is a three-time recipient of the Conference USA Spring Spirit of Service Award.
The award is designed to recognize the community service efforts of the league's student-athletes based on significant community service, good academic standing and participation in a sport.
Spirit of Service awards are presented three times throughout the school year. The latest recipients represent baseball, men's and women's golf, women's rowing, softball, men's and women's tennis and men's and women's outdoor track and field.
Gue was a May graduate as a biomedical sciences major with minors in chemistry and psychology. She made the Dean's List in each semester of college and was a four-time selection to the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll.
The Thundering Herd softball team captain, also a Cabell Midland High School graduate, has been involved with numerous community service activities in the Tri-State and also visited the Dominican Republic on a mission trip with her church.
She is an active member of softball's Lil' Sis Program and has worked with the March of Dimes, St. Jude's Walk, Marshall Sweetheart Clinic, Operation Christmas Child, City Mission Ministries and the Marshall Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Gue was the leading hitter this year during Marshall's run to the C-USA championship and the NCAA regionals. The Herd center fielder had a .345 batting average and was successful on 36 of 42 stolen base attempts.
