The Cal Lutheran women’s swimming and diving team recently wrapped up competition this weekend at the Finis Invitational in Santa Cruz, Calif. with many different Regals providing significant contributions throughout weekend.
The Cal Lutheran women’s swimming and diving team is ready to roll tomorrow when they will begin the 2014-15 campaign at the Malibu Invitational hosted by Pepperdine at Raleigh Runnels Memorial Pool. The current team is comprised of just two upper classmen, three sophomores and seven incoming freshman who will look to gain experience and improve over the course of the season.
Everyone played Bingo as a kid; now, the Cal Lutheran student body has the opportunity to play it again with sporting events! CLU athletics, marketing and student life have teamed up to create Purple Pit Bingo complete with prizes at the end of the semester.
Much praise is focused on athletic success during the day-to-day operations of Cal Lutheran athletics, but on Saturday, May 10, 160 student-athletes were recognized, honored and inducted into the CLU Scholar Athlete Society at the 11th annual induction ceremony in the Gilbert Arena.
CLU recently had four seniors received the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NCSA) All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year Award. Diver/ pole vaulter Sheyenne Machida and setter Jackie Russell represented the CLU women honored while thrower Bjorn McMillan and offensive tackle Andrew Pankow earned the award on the men’s side.
During Division III Week Cal Lutheran will feature a number of student-athletes. Senior swimmer and ODK president Aaron Waters, who has done two research fellowships and earned two travel grants to present his findings at professional conventions while setting three CLU school records in the pool, is our first Wednesday honoree.
