LA JOLLA, Calif. - Continuing its ongoing commitment to community service, the UC San Diego Athletics Department made a generous donation of previously used uniforms and equipment to the Preuss School on Thursday.

After a thorough inventory of UCSD's 23 intercollegiate athletic programs' equipment and apparel, representatives from the department delivered a truckload of jerseys, warm-up suits, shoes, basketballs, volleyballs, and more to the school in an effort to continue the strong relationship between Preuss and UCSD.

"The Preuss School's mission is really in line with our overall mission here at UCSD," said Senior Associate Athletic Director Wendy Taylor-May. "We view Preuss students as members of the Triton family and hopefully this will give them a way to show their Triton spirit."

Student-athletes from the women's cross country, men's and women's basketball, and men's soccer teams, as well as several administrators took part in the event, coordinated with Preuss athletic director Lisa Hawk. After unloading multiple boxes of equipment, a hand full of student-athletes spoke to Preuss students about what it takes to be an athlete at the collegiate level.

"The Preuss School UCSD is in the unique position of being located on the prestigious campus of the University of California San Diego," Hawk said.

"We have not only benefited from the academic resources the university has to offer, but also the generosity of the Athletic Department. It is with a great sense of pride that the Preuss student-athletes wear the uniforms that were donated by those Triton athletes that they both admire and respect. It is our sincere wish that the relationship established between UCSD and the Preuss athletes will continue to grow."

The Preuss School is a charter middle and high school dedicated to providing a rigorous college prep education for motivated low-income students who will become the first in their families to graduate from college.
