Six USC Beaufort student-athletes earned Sun Conference Player of the Week honors Monday, as selected by the league's sports information directors.

It's the most Sand Sharks to win in the same week, as USCB swept the four men's and women's track and field events and won awards for softball and women's golf.

Junior shortstop C.J. Browder picked up softball player of the week honors for the second time this season after putting up huge numbers at the plate in six games last week. Browder was 11-for-20 with four doubles, three home runs, 16 RBIs and 11 runs scored. Her seven RBIs against St. Ambrose tied a single-game school record.

Senior Kaitlin O'Sullivan was honored for women's golf after shooting 79-81--160 to lead USCB and tie for 19th at the AASU Pirate Invitational last week.

Four freshman track and field athletes picked up honors for their performances at the Palmetto Classic, as Pamela Robinson was named the women's track athlete of the week, Ashlee Eady garnered women's field athlete of the week status, Domonique Harris was named men's track athlete of the week, and Josh Roper picked up men's field athlete of the week honors.

Robinson set a school record in the 200 meters (27.93) and narrowly missed a school record in the 400 (1:03.93), and she helped the 4x100 relay team set a school mark (52.19). Eady also was a member of that relay team, and she broke her own school record and set a meet record in the high jump with a winning mark of 1.65 meters (5 feet, 5 inches) to achieve a "B" qualifying standard for the NAIA National Championship. She also finished 12th in the 100 meters (17.35).

Harris set a school record in the 200 (22.89) and just missed another in the 400 (51.72), and Roper broke two of the three school marks he had set a week earlier, bettering his marks in the shot put (13.32 meters) and javelin (33.49 meters).
