BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana sophomore softball standout Brittany Devitt has been named the October C.H.A.M.P.S. Champ of the Month for her performances on and off the field.

Devitt, a 5-5 utility player for the Hoosiers, played in 45 games for IU as a freshman and started 39 contests. She hit five home runs and drove in 12 runs last season. Devitt also scored 14 runs and hit three doubles in her rookie campaign.

"Brittany has been working unbelievably hard for us, both on and off the field, so I am very proud to have her represent IU softball in being named Champ of the Month for October," said Indiana head softball coach Michelle Gardner. "She is always around to help her teammates and those around her, so this honor is well deserved."

"Brittany embodies what it means to be a Hoosier student-athlete and a CHAMP," said IU Academic Advisor Brenda Blackburn. "Brittany is very dedicated at being a team player, striving for excellence in the classroom and holding herself to her own goals and often meeting them."

The C.H.A.M.P.S. (Challenging Athletes' Minds for Personal Success) Champ of the Month is an outstanding student that has excelled in all of the five areas of CHAMPS: service, personal and career development, and academic and athletic excellence.
