COLUMBUS -- Ohio Dominican's athletic department passed out eight awards to deserving student-athletes at the recent Student-Athlete Recognition Night (April 29) in Matesich Theater.

Allie Hinton (Newcomerstown) was named the Female Newcomer of the Year after a tremendous freshman season for the softball team. She batted .345 this spring with five home runs and 33 RBI, and was even more remarkable in conference play, hitting .430 against GLIAC pitching. She played a key role in ODU's GLIAC title and will help the Panthers play for a tournament championship.
