(July 24, 2014) -- The NCAA recently announced that UTSA softball player Megan Low is the 2014 Division I statistical champion for home runs per game.

A first-team All-Conference USA and second-team National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-South Region honoree, Low averaged a national-best 0.44 home runs per contest during her junior campaign.

The Spring native led UTSA with a .388 batting average (5th C-USA), 34 runs, 12 doubles, 22 homers (1st C-USA/4th NCAA), 47 RBIs (3rd C-USA), 137 total bases (1st C-USA), a .901 slugging percentage (1st C-USA/3rd NCAA) and .513 on-base percentage (2nd C-USA).

The Roadrunners' first baseman led the nation in home runs for six consecutive weeks from March 30-May 4 and, despite missing the final series of the season with an injury, she closed the regular season tied for the NCAA lead. Low tied single-game school records with three homers against Texas State (April 9) and seven RBIs in a win over Lamar (Feb. 8), while her 22 round-trippers were the second-best single-season total in program history.

The two-time C-USA Player of the Week honoree also helped UTSA tie an NCAA record, when she hit one of two grand slams for the Roadrunners in the second inning of a win against Lamar (Feb. 8).

In addition to her numerous awards for her performance on the field, Low also earned the C-USA Spirit of Service Award and earned a spot on the league's All-Academic Team and Commissioner's Honor Roll.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
