Winston-Salem, NC – Nothing like hard work and dedication that leads to recognigtion. Just ask Shannon Davis and Blaine Fullard both of Winston Salem State University.

Softball player Shannon Davismen’s tennis player Blaine Fullard have been named as the Crown Trophy-WSSU Student Athletes of the Week for the week ending March 27th, 2005. Davis, a senior pitcher on the WSSU softball team, and two-time All-CIAA selection as a catcher, pitched two complete games on Saturday afternoon, helping WSSU to a split with the Lady Vikings of Elizabeth City State University. Davis recorded 14 strikeouts in 13 innings. For her efforts, she was named the Crown Trophy-WSSU Female Student Athlete of the Week.

Fullard, a sophomore on the WSSU men’s tennis team helped the Rams to a pair of wins this past weekend over the Saint Paul’s College Tigers. This was huge for the Rams as they came into the matches winless. Fullard went undefeated on the afternoon as he won both of his singles matches in the fourth singles flight and chipped in with a doubles effort that was able to win a pair of matches at second doubles with his playing partner, Patrick Jenkins. For his efforts this past week, he was named the Crown Trophy-WSSU Men’s Student Athlete of the Week.
