Join Pep Fernandez and Geoff Gorham LIVE from the SRC at UC Riverside as they preview the Highlanders Big West Conference volleyball match against UC Irvine with some special guests, including: men’s basketball coach Dennis Cutts, basketball player Alex Larsson, men’s golf coach Rick Todd, golfer Brandon Tsujimoto, women’s golf coach Mary Ritchie, and golfer Julia Sander.
Check out some of the pictures from the press conference at UC Riverside to introduce Dylan Cavender to the baseball team. The Highlanders “adopted” Cavender as part of the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation.
According to a release from UCR: The Friends of Jaclyn Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for children battling pediatric brain tumors and other childhood cancers, and to raise awareness through their “Adopt-A-Child,” “Safe on the Sidelines,” and “Guardian Angel” programs. They do this by pairing the afflicted child and their siblings with local high school and college sports teams, campus clubs, and arts programs in their community.
Cavender will share a locker with #8 Ian Nowak inside the UCR clubhouse.
Assistant coach Bryson LeBlanc was instrumental in helping connect the Highlanders baseball team with Cavender and the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation.
The UC Riverside men’s soccer team remained unbeaten in Big West Conference play with a 3-0 win vs. visiting UC Irvine. The Highlanders move to 4-0-1 to lead the Big West South Division and match last year’s win total in conference play.
