What Achievement in the A-Sun was the Most Notable in August?

Crons sponsors the monthly "Achiever Award," which is presented to the school recognized by a fan vote for the most notable achievement from the month prior. Below are the descriptions of each submission, along with the poll in the right-hand sidebar.

Jean Rivaroli, North Florida Men’s Soccer
The Atlantic Sun Men’s Soccer Player of the Week (Aug. 27), Rivaroli leads the Ospreys in scoring with five points and two goals scored. The freshman scored the first goal of the season against Siena and provided an assist for the game-winner by Teddy Mulamba in the season opener. He scored a goal against FIU and was named to the Mike Gibbs Memorial All-Tournament Team.

ETSU Women’s Soccer
The ETSU women’s soccer team tied its best start in program history posting a perfect 4-0-0 record in August. The Lady Bucs began the season on the road with a 2-0 shutout of Tennessee Tech, followed by a 2-1 overtime victory at UNC Asheville. In its home opener, ETSU won its second straight overtime game, 3-2, over Presbyterian, and completed the weekend sweep with a 1-0 shutout of defending Big South champion Radford. Freshman goalkeeper Sierra Campbell was named A-Sun Defensive Player of the Week on Aug. 20, and junior striker Ramey Kerns followed with her second career A-Sun Player of the Week honors on Aug. 27.

Jacksonville Men's Basketball
The JU Men’s Basketball team spent time during the month of August serving overseas and in the community. On Aug. 12-17, the team spent week in the Dominican Republic visiting kids at an orphanage and people in a sugar cane field. They handed out 8-10 bags of clothes donated by the JU community and bought food and other items with some of the donations. The team did without their phones for the week so they could learn to truly appreciate what they had and learn more about their teammates. The squad learned more about each other through the nightly devotions from their hosts from Nation of Coaches and Score International. In another service endeavor, the team spent their lunch today volunteering to work at in the garden of the Northside Early Head Start Center.

Anthi Chatzigiakoumi, FGCU Women’s Basketball
FGCU women’s basketball sophomore forward Anthi Chatzigiakoumi got to represent her home country and FGCU this summer, as she helped the U-20 Greek National Team claim the 2012 European Championships in the Czech Republic. Chatzigiakoumi averaged 31.6 minutes per game in the eight games of the European Championships, while averaging 7.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. She ranked in the top 20 in eight different statistical categories, helping Greece defeat host Czech Republic in the title game. It was Chatzigiakoumi’s seventh European Championship as a member of the Greek team.
Lipscomb Softball
The Lipscomb University Softball team took a mission trip to Honduras August 6-13. There they worked in conjunction with Mission Lazarus on several initiatives including laying the foundation for a house in San Marcos de Colon, making food deliveries to remote, mountainous areas near the Nicaraguan border and playing with children. By the end of the week, the team had moved more than 350 cubic yards of dirt and rock one wheelbarrow at a time.

Lauren Gassie, Mercer Women's Soccer 
Leading the Bears with 6 points (2g, 2a) Gassie is tied for third in the conference in total points. She has one game winner and leads the team in both shots (9) and shots on goal (6).
