Sept. 16, 2019

Sam Blake- Men's Cross Country

Sam Blake led the pack for the Triton men and overall at the Cougar Challenge last Friday in San Marcos. Out of the 53 total participants, Blake placed first in a race that came down to the wire. He crossed the finish line nine-tenths of second faster than Queens (N.C.)'s runner-up (24:11.9). A time of 24-minutes, 11.0-seconds in the 8K marked Blake’s best-time yet, hence granting him individual champion. His performance assisted the UC San Diego men in locking up a third-place team finish ahead of three other competitive NCAA West Region opponents. 

Jessica Rieble - Women's Volleyball

Jessica Rieble led UC San Diego to a tourney-best 4-0 record at the six-team West Region Showcase in La Jolla. She hit .440 while averaging 3.7 points, 2.7 kills, 1.3 blocks, and 1.1 digs. Her hitting percentage and blocking average ranked second among all tourney players. Rieble's 16 points vs. Concordia Irvine and 10.5 points vs. Saint Martin's were match highs. Her 9 blocks vs. Concordia Irvine were 1 short of her career high. She was named to all-tournament team.

Brett Jones - Men's Soccer

Brett Jones led the Tritons to a pair of victories to start the season, first against Concordia University Irvine and later against nationally-ranked No. 25 Fresno Pacific. Jones contributed a goal in each of the contests. The junior forward opened the scoring against the Sunbirds after a scoreless first half on Thursday, and gave the Tritons a 2-0 lead over the Eagles on Saturday. Jones was relentless, taking 11 shots across the two matches, five of which were on-goal.

Angelica Ramos - Women's Soccer

Goalkeeper Angelica Ramos was perfect in the net as the No. 3 Tritons recorded back-to-back shutout victories to open the season. Facing Concordia University Irvine on Thursday and Biola University on Saturday, Ramos stopped every shot she faced, picking up seven saves. The San Clemente native played all 180 minutes of the two contests, collecting her 23rd and 24th clean sheets of her Triton career.
