Valparaiso outfielder Karen Korb (Indianapolis, Ind./Lutheran) represented the Crusaders on the 2009 Horizon League Academic All-League softball team.  It marked the second straight season that Korb received the league academic honors.

Korb closed out her career on the field as Valpo’s career record holder in runs scored (104), stolen bases (100) and sacrifice bunts (52), and finished fourth in Crusader history with 152 career hits.  This past season, the Second Team All-Horizon League selection hit .331 out of the leadoff spot for Valpo, setting a new single-season school record with 35 stolen bases and is among the top-ten in the nation in steals/game.  She also scored 44 runs on the season, second-most in a single campaign in program history.

In the classroom, Korb maintained a 3.95 GPA as a double major in finance and marketing.  A CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Third Team Academic All-American selection, she was the recipient of Valpo’s Laurel Award, presented to the Crusader senior student-athlete with the highest cumulative GPA.  A four-time Horizon League Scholar-Athlete of the Week honoree and a three-time NFCA Scholar-Athlete, Korb earned Valpo Presidential academic honors each of her three seasons of eligibility and was a member of the Horizon League Academic Honor Roll each of Valpo’s first three semesters in the league.
