STORRS, Conn. (March 14, 2006) - University of Connecticut freshman Micah Truax (South Glens Falls, N.Y.) was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll as announced by the league office on Monday evening. It was the first weekly honor of her career.

In the Florida State Invitational, Truax went 8-for-17 with nine runs scored and five RBI. Both of her home runs came during the tournament, one against Kent State and the other against Indiana.
