Destressing Before Finals
It's a slow week of Cal Athletics news given it's finals time. That did not stop many Cal students, including several athletes, to participate in a dance music video to that really catchy Taylor Swift song (that you may or may not be willing to publicly admit to be a fan of). It was released earlier this week to help students destress while studying for their finals.
Other students destressed by participating in the traditional Naked Run [NSFW].
We hear that the 5 sophomores on the team this year (Bird, Mathews, Singer, Rooks, and Moute a Bidias) are a pretty tight bunch. See how whether Singer and Rooks agree on who is better on a variety of things.
In case you missed it, the Daily Cal did a story earlier this month on former Cal QB Zach Kline. The piece was written just before it was announced that Kline will transfer to Indiana State, better known as the alma mater of Larry Bird.
Bears on TV
The Pac-12 Networks have announced some of their spring schedule.
Baseball will have 17 games broadcasted, including 6 home games thanks to recent improvement to Evans Diamond.
Softball will also have 17 games on the Pac-12 Networks.
I'm personally looking forward to see some of these games on TV.
Furthering illustrating how the Cal ruggers are true student-athlete, Rugby's sophomore Anthony Kosinski will be juggling rugby with the rigor of the UC Berkeley Mechanical Engineering department.
Despite a losing season record-wise, Cal junior middle blocker Lillian Schonewise has been collecting honors this offseason. Congrats to Lillian for being named to the All-American Honorable Mention list.
Schonewise becomes the 20th All-American in school history. Cal has produced at least one All-American in 11 of the past 13 seasons.
Schonewise finished the season with a .345 hitting percentage, seventh in the Pac-12 and the 11th-best mark all-time at Cal. Schonewise also led the Bears with an average of 0.93 blocks per set.
Bears in the Pros
Ryan Anderson talked with Cal Athletics about his Cal experience, when he stopped by the Men's Basketball game against Montana few weeks ago (right before his New Orleans Pelicans played Golden State Warriors).
In more Cal Baseball alum in MLB movement.
Pitcher Brandon Morrow has signed an one year deal with the San Diego Padres. Check out Gaslamp Ball's take of this signing. Barring further moves (which is a big IF), Morrow joins fellow Cal alum Tyson Ross on the Padres.
