Holly Anderson Earns C-USA Spirit of Service Award

Holly Anderson

June 11, 2013

HOUSTON - For her efforts on and off the softball diamond, University of Houston senior Holly Anderson was awarded with the Conference USA Spring Spirit of Service Award, the league office announced on Tuesday.

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.

Anderson closed out her collegiate career by setting a school record with 16 doubles to lead C-USA and ranked second in the league in home runs (12), RBI (53), slugging percentage (.648) and total bases (118) to help the Cougars earn their third-straight NCAA Regional berth.

A senior leader on the team, Anderson was active within the community and school as she volunteered for numerous functions including at the Houston Food Bank, working the Kids Zone before home football games and youth softball clinics. In addition to those activities, Anderson and the UH softball team "adopted" a 12-year old cancer patient (Bethany). During her final days, Anderson and the team would spend time with her in the hospital and over the phone.

A two-time member of the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll, Anderson is on pace to graduate this December. Following graduation, the health major will further her career by entering nursing school.

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.

Ameen Behbahani (football) and Mikhail McLean (men's basketball) were the fall and winter recipients of the award for Houston.
