TRITON ATHLETES CAPTURE ACADEMIC HONORS
UC San Diego student-athletes garnered academic awards in two sports last week...Senior pitcher Elias Tuma of the Baseball squad was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America team for the second consecutive year, snagging second team honors...Tuma, who sports a 3.93 cumulative GPA in cognitive science, led the CCAA in appearances as one of the stalwarts out of the bullpen for a Triton team that won its fourth straight conference regular season and championship tournament titles.

Meanwhile, Coach Kevin Ring's Men's Volleyball team placed six individuals on the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) All-Academic team, matching Stanford and Pacific for the most of any school in the conference...Earning honors for UCSD were juniors Carl Eberts and Chase Frishman, sophomores Sebastian Brady, Vaun Lennon and Mike Brunsting and freshman Cheyne Hayes.
