When softball player Nicole Huddleston entered the 2010 season for the Pirates as the lone senior on the squad, she knew she would face a big responsibility to help mentor her young teammates through the season. A native of Rossville, Ga., Huddleston has embraced that role and ranks among the top home run hitters in AASU softball history. As a freshman, she had an outstanding debut, hitting .306 with a team-high eight home runs and 29 RBI. As a sophomore she had to battle through her own bit of adversity. Just 15 games into the season, she suffered a season-ending knee injury. But she made a decision to remain involved. As a junior, after overcoming her injury, she hit .328 with six home runs and 36 RBI, earning first-team All-Peach Belt Conference and second-team National Fastball Coaches Association All-Southeast Region honors. She was named to the preseason All-Conference team in February. She understands her role as a team leader. “You don’t have to be the boss, but you do have to guide the younger players,” she said. “You have to learn to pick and choose how to say things.” Which leads directly into her plans for the future. A health science major with a 3.0 GPA, Huddleston graduated in May with her bachelor’s and wants to pursue her master’s in education, teach elementary school students and coach softball. She had a small taste of that in February when she and four other players volunteered at East Broad Elementary School as a part of the AASU Alumni Association’s monthly “Read Aloud” program. She is clearly excited about her future. ivAN SopiN I van Sopin played guitar in a rock band in his hometown of Syktyvkar, Russia and even released a demo album. But since arriving in the United States and enrolling at AASU in 2005, he has focused on computer science, completing his bachelor’s in 2008 before enrolling in the master’s program, which he finished in May 2010. At AASU he co-authored nine research papers with Felix Hamza-Lup, professor of computer science. The papers involved Hamza-Lup’s projects like 3DRTT (3D Radiation Therapy Treatment) and Neuro Pathways. 3DRTT is a recently patented graphical simulation web-based tool that aids physicians and medical personnel using linear accelerators to apply radiation therapy. Neuro Pathways is a collaborative project with the Mercer University School of Medicine to help medical students visualize and better understand the human nervous system. “Computer science requires you to be a constant learner,” said Sopin. “In some fields, like art, if you’re talented you can take it easy, do your thing and probably succeed. I don’t think computer science is one of those fields,” he said. Sopin, who is employed by a software development company in Savannah, also provided leadership to AASU computer science students through Hamza-Lup’s Network-Enabled WorkSpaces (NEWS) laboratory. “I’m pretty thankful for all the opportunities I’ve had here,” he said. “Who knows what I would be doing without all the research I’ve been involved with.” To learn more about Sopin, visit his website: ivansopin.org.
