Eight members of Cal Lutheran’s first-ever outright Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Championship women’s track & field team earned another honor on Wednesday; SCIAC All-Academic accolades. Representing the Regals on the conference’s top academic list was Natalie Bullock, Tori Dahl, Allie Hadley, Amanda Hamilton, Amanda Miller, Lauren Rohach and Kendall Sauter.
Each year conference offices across the country at all NCAA levels nominate worthy candidates for the NCAA Woman of the Year award. In 2013-14 there were two SCIAC standout senior student-athletes meeting the criteria and for the second consecutive year one of the league finalists has come out of Cal Lutheran with graduate Lauren Rohach being selected by the committee.
The final day of the 2014 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships hosted at Ohio Wesleyan saw three Cal Lutheran student-athletes earn All-America status while the team tally was the highest in program history.
The career of the most decorated Cal Lutheran student-athlete of all-time came to a close on Thursday. Lauren Rohach accumulated more All-SCIAC accolades (16) in her tenure at Cal Lutheran than any other competitor to don the Violet and Gold, male or female, over the last four years and she concluded her competitive days on the national stage.
Hard work clearly pays off and that is not just looking at the student-athletes donning Violet and Gold for Cal Lutheran. Earlier this week the USTFCCCA announced the recipients of the regional Coach and Assistant Coach of the Year awards and a pair of CLU leaders was honored.
After claiming its first outright conference championship in school history, 13 Cal Lutheran women’s track & field athletes were named All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) announced by the league office last week.
Announced on Sunday by the NCAA Track and Field Committee the Cal Lutheran women’s track and field program will send six representatives to the 2014 Outdoor Women’s Track and Field Championships hosted by Ohio Wesleyan in Delaware, Ohio from May 22-24.
In its final tune-up before the NCAA Division III Outdoor Women’s Track & Field Championships, Cal Lutheran got a record-breaking performance from numerous different competitors and a relay team at the Redlands Last Chance Qualifier Friday at Ted Runner Stadium.
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.
