Rower Christina Sprouse Wins Pac-10 Spring Scholar-Athlete Award

June 16, 2010

UCLA senior rower Christina Sprouse has been named a spring Pac-10 Scholar Athlete, the conference announced Wednesday. Sprouse, 22, will graduate this summer with a 3.77 cumulative grade point average in Physics.

In 2010 Sprouse helped lead the Bruins to their most successful rowing season in program history. UCLA earned its first full-team invitation to the NCAA Championships, at which the first eight finished in a program-best ninth place and the team finished 12th overall.

Each quarter the Pacific-10 Conference names its Scholar-Athletes of the Year, presented by Toyo Tires®, to nominees presented by its member schools. Scholar-Athletes of the Year in each sport will receive a commemorative award. Toyo Tires donates $1,000 to the scholarship funds of the institution's athletic department of each winner in recognition of their accomplishments.

In order to be eligible for the Pac-10 Scholar-Athlete of the Year award, student-athletes must be seniors athletically and on track to receive a degree. They also must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, participate in at least 50% of the scheduled contests and have a minimum of one year in residence at the institution. Each Pac-10 institution nominates one individual per sport. A committee of Pac-10 staff members selects the winners.

UCLA's other nominees included Justin Uribe, Baseball; Megan Langenfeld, Softball; Marco Anzures, Men's Track and Field and Tori Pena, Women's Track and Field.
