Gonzalez and Galarza Named Big West Sportsmanship Recipients

IRVINE, Calif. – Junior Ritchie Gonzalez and sophomore Samantha Galarza were named Big West Sportsmanship Award Recipients, it was announced by the league Thursday.
 
Each school’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) voted for a male and female representative who best displayed Sportsmanship during the 2013 calendar year.  Sportsmanship, as defined by the SAAC Council, is “conduct or practice of fairness, courtesy, and honor while participating in sports; the ethos carried not only in victory but also in the face of defeat.”
 
This is the first year of a modified Sportsmanship Award, which now recognizes individuals as opposed to teams under the old format.
 
Ritchie Gonzalez
In 2013, Cal State Fullerton midfielder Ritchie Gonzalez, a business administration major, appeared in seven games scoring one goal, recording an assist, and three points before suffering an injury that ended his season. The San Bernardino, Calif., native played in 19 games as junior, while making 12 starts.
 
Samantha Galarza
In 2014, Samantha Galarza has started 18 games totaling 15 hits, two home runs and six runs scored with 10 RBIs. Galarza has a .316 on-base percentage to go along with a .278 batting average while collecting 22 total bases.  The communications major has been named a Dean’s Scholar, a President’s Scholar and has earned Dean’s List honors every semester at Cal State Fullerton. Galarza received the CSF Big West Sportsmanship Award in 2013 and is currently a Titan SAAC Representative.
