If you could be playing another NCAA sport at UCSD besides the one you are in now, which sport would it be?

 


 

DAVE GUINASSO
Track & Field                                                 Senior
San Rafael, CA (Marin Catholic HS)           General Biology (Sixth College)
   

"Definitely basketball since I played in high school. I miss running that fast break and dishing for those crazy finishes."

 

IZZY POZURAMA
Women’s Soccer                                         Junior
Lake Forest, CA (El Toro HS)                     Psychology (Warren College)

"If I could play another sport I would probably choose basketball. I was a goalie for a soccer team when I was younger so my hand-eye coordination is decent and I'm also pretty good at free throws. I wouldn't be able to do a water sport because I would probably drown."

 


 

MATT MICHALKO
Men’s Water Polo                                        Junior
San Diego, CA (The Bishop’s School)      Psychology (Sixth College)


"Basketball was my first love and the sport I focused on before I got competitive in the pool. I enjoy the pace of the game and the different roles players find to help their teams. I used to play in the low post in middle school but I'm pretty sure I would have to find a different position now that I've stopped growing at six feet and zero inches."

 

 

RACHEL MARTY
W. Basketball                                              Senior
Menlo Park, CA (Pinewood HS)                Bioengineering (Marshall College)

"If I had to play another sport at UCSD, I would run for the track team. I'm not choosing track because I have the skill to be on the team, but I love the sport and enjoy running."



 

  

 

 

JACOB WILLIAMS
Golf                                                                Senior
Fontana, CA (Diamond Ranch HS)             Economics (Muir College)

"I would definitely pick Water Polo.Their team dynamic and overall presence on campus as a top Division I program is awesome. Plus they're all ripped."

 

 

 

NICK IORFINO
Men’s Volleyball                                                      Senior                       
Huntington Beach, CA (Huntington Beach HS)   Communications (Sixth College)

"I think I'd like to run the 100m in Track and Field or maybe try long jump. I've always been pretty quick and I think those would be cool."
