LA JOLLA, Calif. - The UC San Diego Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is proud to announce the selection of seven outstanding student-athletes to its second Hall of Fame class. The announcement was made Tuesday by Director of Athletics Earl W. Edwards.

Entering the UC San Diego Athletics Hall of Fame as the Class of 2014 are Tritons Julia Cuder (women’s soccer, 1999-2001), Jamie Dailey (women’s water polo, 1988-92), Carol Lipson (women’s volleyball, 1984-87), Bob Natal (baseball, 1984-87), Shannon Quigley (women's track and field/women's volleyball, 1988-91), Chris Romey (men’s soccer, 1989-91, 93) and Paul Trainer (men’s basketball, 1971-75).

“Last year’s establishment of a UC San Diego Athletics Hall of Fame was a milestone for our program and adding these seven honorees to that list elevates its status," said Edwards. "The individual and collective accomplishments this group accumulated as Triton student-athletes is truly astounding. We had a stellar inaugural class and this second edition is every bit as remarkable. It really demonstrates the depth of success our department has enjoyed in its first 40-plus years.”

The seven individuals will officially be inducted during a Homecoming Weekend ceremony on Sunday, Oct. 12 at 10 a.m.

“I feel extremely honored, I have so many great memories from my time at UCSD," said Romey, who helped the Tritons win a pair of national championships. "I’m grateful to be recognized in this way, but there were so many others involved. My coach, Derek Armstrong, and all of my teammates certainly helped me out, made me a better player and made all of our success possible. They’re all a part of this.”

"What a great honor, one that brings me back to playing with some great people," said Lipson, a two-time All-American that led UCSD to three national titles. "In a way it seems kind of strange because everything is so intense when you're on the team, but it just fades into memories. This brings back how much each of us matter and reminds us that we are part of the history and legacy of UCSD Athletics."

To nominate an individual for future Hall of Fame consideration, please fill out either an electronic form or a printable mail-in form. Student-athletes may be considered for Hall of Fame induction 10 years after the completion of their eligibility. Coaches and staff qualify following three years of separation from UC San Diego or 25 years of consecutive service.

For more information, including details of the 2013 inductees, please visit the UCSD Athletics Hall of Fame site.

Throughout its history of athletic and academic excellence, UCSD has won 30 team national championships and 138 individual titles. A remarkable 1,210 student-athletes have been named to All-America teams and over 160 have earned Academic All-America status.
