Good is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and a three-time Academic ACC Honor Roll selection. The accounting major has been named to Virginia's Dean's list twice. Good serves as a Student Athlete Mentor in Charlottesville.
Peay also had an outstanding senior season for the Cavaliers and was named to the 2000 ACC All-Tournament Team. She set single season and career records for sacrifice hits in 2000. This past season, Peay recorded 30 sacrifice hits to set a single season record and her total of 54 in her career set a record as well. She hit .258 this season with 47 hits in 182 at-bats and also scored 24 runs. In addition, she registered an impressive .977 fielding percentage (eight errors in 344 total chances) while splitting time between first and second base. Peay concludes her career second on Virginia's games played list with 211. A four-year starter, Peay also holds UVa's single season record for putouts with 492 in 1998.
Peay ranks fifth in a class of 93 at the University of Virginia's Nursing School with a GPA of 3.85. She has been named to the Dean's list seven semesters and has been on the ACC Honor Roll for three years. Peay was awarded Intermediate Honors for having a 3.4 GPA or higher after two years in 1997. She was a National Fastpitch Coaches' Association Academic All-America selection in 1998 and 1999. Peay was recently presented with the Jettie Hill Memorial Award, which is given to the fourth-year Virginia female athlete with the highest scholastic average throughout her four years.
The Virginia softball team concluded the 2000 season with a 27-38 overall record and a 3-5 mark in the Atlantic Coast Conference. For the third consecutive year, the Cavaliers advanced to the Championship Game of the ACC Tournament.
