Every Tuesday, UK Athletics recognizes outstanding performances for our student-athletes. These are the honorees for the week ending Sunday, Oct. 24:

Men's soccer: Tyler Beadle

Freshman Tyler Beadle had a great week in leading the Wildcats to a crucial win over conference foe FIU and a tie with No. 16 Indiana. Beadle made four saves in the tie with IU, helping UK to just its third tie in series history with the high-octane Hoosiers. In the win over FIU, Beadle collected his fourth shutout of the season, saving four shots in the game, including two shots in a five-second span in the second half. A native of Douglasville, Ga., Beadle has posted a 1.11 goals-against average in his first 15 collegiate games.

Men's golf: Brian Belden

Brian Belden shot a 1-under-par 71 in the final round, totaling a 54-hole score of 1-under-par 215 to gather his third straight top-20 finish at the UNCG Bridgestone Golf Collegiate. The top-20 finish is the third straight top-20 finish of the year for Belden, who ended the Gary Koch Intercollegiate in 15th and the Philadelphia Big 5 Invitational tied for ninth. Belden's 3-under-par 69 in the second round was one of the lowest rounds of the tournament and the lowest UK score at the event.

Rifle: Heather Greathouse

Sophomore Heather Greathouse posted a match-best 590 in air rifle and added a 581 in smallbore to lead the Kentucky rifle team past Army on Sunday at UK's Barker Hall.

"I am very proud of Heather and her performance this weekend," UK head coach Harry Mullins said. "She worked through diversity like a champion in order to reach her personal goals. She has set some high standards for herself this year, but has also committed to a high level of intensity during training. This focus has brought her expectations to reality. We are all looking forward to watching Heather the rest of the season."

Football: Winston Guy

Recorded eight tackles in the loss to Georgia.

Football: Mike Hartline

Completed 27 of 43 passes for a career-high 353 yards and four touchdowns.

Women's soccer: Laura Novikoff

Laura Novikoff helped UK to a 1-1 record on the weekend by netting three goals, including the game-winner against Mississippi State. Novikoff scored two goals against Mississippi State, including one off a free kick from 45 yards out. Her multi-goal game was the second of her career and the second for UK this season.

Men's tennis: Eric Quigley

Eric Quigley won the singles title of the USTA/ITA Ohio Valley Regional Indoor Championships over ITA No. 1 John-Patrick Smith of Tennessee 6-3, 7-6 (5), claiming his second straight singles title at the event. The win marks the second time in his career that Quigley has defeated the No. 1-ranked player in the country. Last year, Quigley took down top-ranked Oleksandr Nedovyesov of Oklahoma State in straight sets 7-5, 6-1 at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-American Championships. This is the first time in three chances that Quigley has defeated Smith.

Men's soccer: Tyler Riggs

Freshman Tyler Riggs netted the biggest goal of his short UK career on Sunday, helping UK post a win over league foe FIU. With the game scoreless and just three minutes left in regulation, Riggs hooked up with Charles Pettys for the game-winning goal, lifting UK to the crucial, must-win over FIU. On the year, Riggs, a native of Louisville, Ky., owns a team-best four goals.
