    Cheryl Venorsky (1989-92) was equally brilliant on the field and in the classroom. The shortstop was a two-time First-Team All-MVC selection (1990, 1991) and a First-Team All-Great Lakes Region pick (1991). An administration of justice major, she maintained a 3.8 cumulative GPA and was a three-time Academic All-American (1990, 1991, 1992). Her crowning achievement was winning the GTE Academic All-American-of-the-Year award in 1991, a year in which she held a perfect 4.0 GPA. Venorsky still ranks among the career leaders at SIU in hits (6th), stolen bases (6th) and runs scored (8th). She led the team in home runs in 1991, a season in which Southern finished 42-7, won the conference with a 14-0 mark and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Venorsky resides in Swansea, Ill., where she works as a police officer.
