Scher Named Athlete of the Week

March 28, 2011

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Sophomore Glen Scher has been named Athlete of the Week after winning the individual title at last week's Barona Collegiate Classic in Lakeside, Calif.

Scher shot a 7-under par 209 to beat Nevada's Scott Smith and San Diego State's J.J. Spaun by one shot apiece. His effort helped the Gauchos to a sixth-place finish out of 16 teams. It was the fourth time in the last five tournaments that they finished among the top-six.

Scher, a native of Thousand Oaks, Calif., became the first UCSB player in nearly five years to win an individual title. The last time a Gaucho won a title was on May 1, 2001 when Jeff Wood won the Big West title.
