Tennis player Kate Chybowski (Appleton, Wis./Appleton North) and soccer player Mike Luttrull (Indianapolis, Ind./Avon) were honored tonight as the University of Evansville's most outstanding senior scholar-athletes.  Chybowski was presented with the Lois D. Patton Award, given annually to UE's top female scholar-athlete, while Luttrull was presented with the Ralph H. Coleman Award, signifying the most outstanding male scholar-athlete.  Both presentations were made at the 18th annual University of Evansville Leadership Awards Reception, at the Ridgway University Center.

Chybowski has a 3.90 grade point average, and will graduate May 7 with a degree in Biology.  She has been accepted into the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine. Chybowski is Evansville's all-time leader with 105 singles victories and 184 total victories, breaking records that were set in 1999 by Karen Black.  Chybowski is third in school history with 79 doubles victories. She is 15-2 this spring at number one singles, including 4-1 against Missouri Valley Conference opponents, and is bidding to become a first-team all-MVC selection for the third time.  Chybowski is also a finalist for the Ida M. Stieler Award, presented each June to UE's female athlete of the year.  She won the award in 2010.  Off the court, Chybowski has been just as successful. She began an after-school program in 2009 at Dexter Elementary School in Evansville, teaching fourth graders and later kindergarteners to speak Spanish. Last year, she began serving as a hospice volunteer at Vista Care of Indiana.  She is also an accomplished cellist, and on Saturday night will join other UE musicians in performing "The Crucifixion" at St. John's United Church of Christ in Boonville.

Luttrull has a 3.78 grade point average, and will graduate next month with a degree in Accounting.  He was a first team selection on the 2010 ESPN Division I Men's Soccer Academic All-America Team after earning second team Academic All-America honors as a junior in 2009. He finished his career as the 15th leading scorer in UE history with 26 goals and 10 assists for 62 points. His 26 goals are the ninth most in Aces' history. Luttrull was Evansville's leading scorer as a senior with six goals and three assists for 15 points, and earned the ProRehab Aces Soccer Classic Offensive Most Valuable Player award for the third consecutive year. A four-time all-Missouri Valley Conference selection, he ranked number four in the MVC in points and number five in goals in 2010. Luttrull was also involved in the soccer team's community outreach programs, including the Ronald McDonald House, Kick for the Cure, Race for the Cure, and Soles4Souls.

Voting for both awards was done by University of Evansville coaches and athletics department administrators.  Other finalists for the Patton Award included basketball player Stephanie Bamberger, swimmer Christina Schmidgall, volleyball player Emily Wandersee and golfer Maggie Wood.  Finalists for the Coleman Award included diver Andy Balczo and baseball player Greg Wallace.

* UE Tennis Defeats USI, 6-1

The University of Evansville tennis team won its five singles matches in straight sets Wednesday afternoon at Carson Center and also swept the doubles matches to defeat the University of Southern Indiana, 6-1.  UE's only loss was a forfeiture at number six because of the absence of Jessica Raatz, who missed Wednesday's match because of a death in her family.

The Aces (10-7, 2-3 MVC) should be back at full strength when they return to Missouri Valley Conference play on Friday at home against Bradley at 5:00. They close out the regular season Saturday with a 1:00 home match against Illinois State.  Saturday's match will be the final one for UE seniors Kate Chybowski, Ashton Schwerin and Pin Sorensen.

* UE Signee Named 2011 Girls Kentucky All-Star

University of Evansville women’s basketball signee, Juliann Miller has been named to the 2011 Girls Kentucky All-Star Team that will represent the state in the annual Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Basketball Classic.

Miller signed a National Letter of Intent to play for Evansville on November 10, 2010, and will be a part of UE’s three-man freshman class next fall, along with LeiLoni Smith (Vian, Okla./Vian), and Kourtni Taylor (Akron, Ohio/Lake Ridge Academy).

* Softball Sets Sights on Shockers

With momentum from a 3-0 shutout over Southern Illinois, the University of Evansville softball team will travel to Wichita, Kan., this weekend in hopes of keeping its winning streak alive in a three-game series against Wichita State. Due to the Easter holiday, the two teams will meet in a doubleheader Friday beginning at 2:00 CDT before closing the series with a single game Saturday at noon.

The Aces (10-34) moved into eighth place in the Missouri Valley Conference with a 4-13 Valley record after last night‚s split against Southern Illinois. This weekend‚s matchup will be a head-to-head battle for the seventh place spot, as Wichita State currently sits just one place above the Aces with a conference record of 6-10. A three-game sweep for Evansville would put UE one game ahead of the Shockers and in sole possession of the seven spot.
