Santa Clara Scholar-Athletes of the Week (April 29 - May 5)

Kelley Mays and Matt Krueger were named Santa Clara's Scholar-Athletes of the Week.

Kelley Mays

The junior from Portland, Ore. helped the women's water polo team to a record year in 2002. The Broncos finished their season this week at the WWPA Championships in Santa Cruz, Calif. where they finished fourth. Mays helped lead Santa Clara to a 21-15 record, the best record for women's water polo in school history. She finished the season as the team-leader in goals scored with 67 and in assists with 28. In the Broncos first-round game against Cal State Bakersfield at the WWPA's, Mays scored a team-high three goals to lead Santa Clara to a 9-8 upset win over the Roadrunners. In addition to her prowess in the pool, Mays has shown a knack for learning in the classroom. She currently has a 3.42 overall GPA in Italian Studies after posting a 3.89 GPA during the winter quarter.

Matt Krueger

The junior form Portland, Ore. has seen as much time of the mound over the last two weeks as he had in his previous two years on the Mission Campus. Krueger threw 3 1/3 innings against Portland two weekends ago, striking out one while allowing only three hits. In 1 2/3 innings against Loyola Marymount this past Friday, Krueger did not allow any hits while facing the minimum during that span. Thus far this season, Krueger has thrown six full innings in which he has allowed only two runs on three hits. This season he has an ERA of 3.00 in nearly double the amount of his previous career innings, cutting his career ERA nearly in half, down to 5.90. Krueger has also excelled in the classroom as well, maintaining a 3.11 overall GPA in Finance after posting a 3.64 GPA during the winter quarter.
