PUEBLO, Colo. - UC San Diego junior Clint Rosser has earned the Elite 89 Award for NCAA Division II men's outdoor track and field. The announcement was made Wednesday.

Founded by the NCAA and presented for each of the 89 championships the NCAA sponsors, the award is given to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the finals site for each of those championships.

Rosser, an environmental engineering student in Muir College, arrives at the NCAA Championships with a grade-point average of 3.97.

The Westchester native also became the third Triton in four years to claim the award, following former men’s water polo standout Brian Donohoe in 2011 (3.952, history) and former baseball pitcher Elias Tuma in 2010 (3.989, cognitive science).

Rosser will compete in the men’s pole vault on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. PDT. The Loyola High School of Los Angeles alumnus comes into the meet with a top height of 16’3.5”, the third-highest mark in Triton history, which he cleared in a first-place finish at the Azusa Pacific Last Chance Qualifier on May 11 to earn a share of the 19th seed at the NCAA Championships.
