IRVING, Texas -
Marshall senior Ashley Gue was one of 12 Conference USA student-athletes that received the C-USA Spring Spirit of Service Award this week.
Gue, from Huntington, W.Va., led the Thundering Herd softball team to its first Conference USA championship and a trip to the NCAA Tournament. She also earned a spot on the C-USA All-Tournament Team and finished her career ranked No. 2 in school history for stolen bases.
Gue has been involved in more than 21 community service activities in the Huntington area and visited the Dominican Republic as part of 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 FCA.
A biomedical sciences major with minors in chemistry and psychology, Gue has made the Dean's List each semester and is a four-time selection to the Conference USA Commissioner's Honor Roll.
The C-USA Spirit of Service Award is designed to recognize the community service efforts of the league's student-athletes, based upon significant community service, good academic standing and participation in their elected sport. The Spirit of Service award is presented three times throughout the season, with these honorees representing Conference USA's spring sports: 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.
