Alex Golding is the Male Recipient for the University of the Pacific Athletics department of the Big West Scholar Athlete of the Year Award. Alex was awarded a plaque in Anaheim during the Big West Banquet and Basketball Conference Tournament. Congratulations Alex.
The Pacific Men’s Tennis program has earned three Big West Athlete of the Week awards this season. Sem Verbeek has tallied two this season as a freshmen after earning the clinching victory over the University of San Francisco and St. Mary’s. For the first time in years, the Tigers faced the University of Hawaii in conference play and for his match winning clinch at #1 singles, Alex Golding received the award. Each week during the spring season, one school nominates an athlete that has excelled and is deserving of the award. All the coaches at the end of the week vote for a player other than their own, which creates the Big West Athlete of the Week. The Tigers have already taken three of the seven weeks of voting.
