ELMHURST, Ill. (DU/Summit) – Junior striker Andre Shinyashiki (Sao Paulo, Brazil) has been named the Summit League Male Athlete of the Month, the league office announced on Tuesday.

Shinyashiki earns his second career Athlete of the Month honor after snagging three Summit League Offensive Player of the Week awards in October. The junior forward scored six of Denver's nine goals last month, including two game-winning goals and two game-tying goals. Additionally, he assisted on Denver's game-winning goal against Eastern Illinois.

The Denver junior’s offensive efforts have propelled his team to an undefeated league season, regular season Summit League title and the No. 1 seed in the upcoming tournament. The Sao Paulo native currently ranks first in the League in goals (nine) and points (22).

UP NEXT: The Pioneers head to Omaha this weekend for the aforementioned Summit League Tournament. No. 1 Denver will take on No. 4 Eastern Illinois in the first semifinal, set to kickoff at 2 p.m. CT/1 p.m. MT. The winner will take on the winner of No. 2 Western Illinois and No. 3 Omaha on Saturday at 2 p.m. CT/1 p.m. MT.
