Freshman Sandusky Honored Twice This Year By USCAA

1/24/2008 —

Freshman Heather Sandusky is the first Penn State Beaver athlete to be honored twice by the USCAA in two different sports during one academic year. Sandusky, a member of the Beaver campus Lady Lions basketball team, was named the USCAA’s Women’s Basketball Player of the Week after she helped lead Beaver to a 2-1 record last week. During the fall semester she was named USCAA Volleyball Player of the Week while playing for the PSUAC championship.

Last week, in a loss against USCAA second-ranked Southern Virginia University, Sandusky recorded 29 points and 10 rebounds, including her first collegiate double-double. She scored 20 points against PSUAC rival Penn College, including a free throw with 2.2 seconds remaining, to give the Lady Lions a 68-67 conference victory. She also scored 20 points in a win over Penn State Mount Alto. Sandusky’s week average was 23 points and 6 rebounds. Sandusky is an applied psychology major from New Brighton.
