- IUB Athletics Hall of Fame (2018)
One of the most productive hitters in the history of IU Softball, Monica Armendarez lettered from 1995-98. She earned second-team All-America honors in 1997 and third-team All-America accolades in 1998. A First Team All-Big Ten selection in 1997 and 1998, Armendarez ranks among the program's all-time leaders in career batting average (.369, 2nd), hits (222, 4th), runs (139, 2nd), doubles (54, 1st), home runs (38, 2nd), RBIs (146, 2nd), walks (95, 5th) and slugging percentage (.784, 2nd). She also owns IU's single-season record for batting average (.437, 1997) and is the only player in Big Ten history to lead the conference outright in home runs during Big Ten games multiple times (1995, 1998). After her IU career concluded, she became the program's first-ever professional player when she played with the Carolina Diamonds of the Women's Pro Fastpitch League. During her professional career, she set the WPSL single-season record for home runs with 12 in 1999.
