BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Junior outfielder Amy Dennis of the UAB softball team is the UAB Student-Athlete of the Week, as announced on Wednesday. The UAB Student-Athlete of the Week recognizes Blazer student-athletes who standout on and off their respective fields of play.
The Mobile, Ala. native has played in every game this season, starting all but two contests. Dennis is the only Blazer to record a grand slam on the season, knocking a four-run home run at Jacksonville State on March 18.
Off the diamond, Dennis excels in the classroom, as well. The physical education/exercise science major owns a 3.51 cumulative GPA. Last week, Dennis was recognized on the Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll for her efforts academically.
Dennis and the UAB softball team will play their final home games of the regular season this upcoming weekend. UAB hosts Charlotte in a three-game set beginning on Friday, April 18.
