Anaheim, Calif. - Pole vaulter Andre Sullivan and middle blocker Alex Wolnisty were honored Thursday morning as Cal State Fullerton's Male and Female Scholar-Athletes of the Year at an annual Big West Conference Awards Breakfast.
Each of the nine institutions selects an annual winner based on a combination of academic and athletic excellence. Sullivan was an NCAA Regional qualifier in 2009 and ranks third on Fullerton's all-time list with a best vault of 5.05 meters. He has been on the dean's list for three successive semesters. His goals after college are geared toward law enforcement and possibly working for the LAPD Swat team.
Wolnisty was a three-time captain of the women's volleyball team and an honorable mention All-Big West selection this season. She is a five-time dean's list honoree. Her goals include seeking an MBA at Cal State Fullerton with hopes of working in sports of fashion marketing.
