Rugby in Argentina!


 
 
 
On March 20, 2016, thirty-two players, two coaches, and Father Paul Mariani arrived in Buenos Aires, Argentina to spend their Spring Break week touring, playing, volunteering, and adventuring with the locals. Their week consisted of many admirable and exciting events. On Monday, the team traveled to the local rugby club of Liceo Naval to participate in a practice session with a former Argentinean national player. On Tuesday, the SCUTS traveled to an orphanage located outside the city where they played games with the excited kids and donated clothing from SCU’s very own Bronco Kidz All Sports Camp. Following the trip to the orphanage, the team won their first match 34 to 21 against Cuidad de Buenos Aires. Excited about their first win, the team was given the day off on Wednesday and they opted to further explore the city’s culture and traditions by visiting the local art museums and opera house. Thursday came with their second and final match against Liceo Naval in which our SCUTS lost 24 to 22. Friday, being another day off for the team, was a day for celebrations in the neighborhood of Boca for Good Friday and Easter. On Saturday, the team traveled back to Liceo Naval to watch their men’s team play in the division one of rugby in Argentina. On Sunday, the team accompanied by Father Mariani, attended Easter mass at Catedral Metropolitana de Buenos Aires (the most famous Catholic church in Buenos Aires) before departing to return back home after a long, but worthwhile trip.  Campus Recreation congratulates our SCUTS Men’s Rugby program for their successes in Buenos Aires and wishes them well on their future endeavors. The team was sure to take lots of photos of their trip so check them out!

Congratulations to Cameron McCarthy!!


The National Collegiate Boxing Association (NCBA) is hosting its 40th national
championship this year in the West, Midwest, and Eastern areas of the United
States. However, this year will mark the third year that women are able to
compete. Santa Clara University’s Cameron McCarthy will be competing in this
year’s championship. Cameron is a junior here at SCU studying Business
Management and Political Science. She began boxing at Santa Clara University on
a whim and fell in love with the sport. She even kept up with the sport while studying
abroad in Argentina. When asked about her experience, she said, “I boxed with a
world champion boxer, Miguel Angel Castellani.  After my program ended I
volunteered with Fight for Peace, in Rio de Janiero, Brazil for three weeks. I
worked in a poor favela, Complexo de Mare, and helped empower girls through
boxing. It was the most incredible experience of my life. I really hope I am able to
go back.” As she is going to be completing her 11th fight this week, Cameron
reminds us that boxing has taught her more about her passions and herself than
anything that she has encountered before. Campus Recreation wishes her luck in
her journey through the championships!

Employee of the week (4/4/16)


Joe has been a Malley employee for almost 4 years now. He is originally from Hawaii and is a Bioengineering major. He has been an incredible asset to the Campus Recreation team and is an extremely hard worker. We are lucky to have had him with us for the past four years and wish him nothing but the best after graduation! Congrats Joe!!

Congrats to Lexie Smallwood!!



Lexie is a junior Biology major that has been the president of the equestrian team for two years now. She competes in the IHSA(intercollegiate horse show association) as a part of the equestrian team. The division she was placed into upon joining the team as a freshman was the Intermediate Fences, the second most advanced division. This placement was based on her high school (and earlier) competition results. Part of the IHSA is a system of advancing through the divisions upon accumulating enough points, based on show results. When a rider reaches 35 points, they are qualified for the post season in that division and subsequently move up to the next (more advanced) division. This year, Lexie "pointed out" of Intermediate fences, which qualified her for regional finals. The top two from regionals (bay area schools) move onto zones (all west coast schools), and the top two from zones move onto nationals! This weekend, Lexie won her class at zone finals which qualified her for nationals in Lexington, KY. Congrats Lexie and good luck at Nationals!!
