Nguyen, Baumgartner Selected UCLA's 2006-07 Pac-10 Conference Medal Winners

June 14, 2007

Jacqueline Nguyen (Women's Track & Field) and Andrew Baumgartner (Football) have been selected as UCLA's 2006-07 Pacific-10 Conference Medal winners. A Conference Medal is awarded annually to each member institution's outstanding senior male and female student-athlete based on the exhibition of the greatest combination of performance and achievement in scholarship, athletics and leadership.

Nguyen, a pole vaulter from Atherton, CA, was a NCAA qualifier in 2006 and 2007. She helped the Bruins capture the 2004 NCAA Outdoor Championship with a fifth-place finish that earned her All-America honors. Nguyen, who represented UCLA at the NCAA Leadership Conference in 2005, was an Arthur Ashe, Jr. Sports Scholar, a three-time Pac-10 All-Academic selection and a member of the USTFCCCA All-Academic Team. She will be graduating with a degree in Physiological Science.

Baumgartner, a flanker from San Rafael, CA, finished his three-year career with 15 receptions for 223 yards (14.9 average) and one touchdown. He played in every game in both 2006 and 2005, and in 2005, he led the team with an average of 18.5 yards per reception. Baumgartner was a member of the Director's Honor Roll in Spring 2005 and Winter 2006 and will be graduating with a degree in Math and Economics.

The Conference Medal winners will be honored at the State Farm Pride of the Pac-10 Luncheon held in Los Angeles in conjunction with the Pac-10 Men's Basketball Tournament next March.
