Everyday Champion: Midfielder Christina Murillo

April 13, 2010

Fullerton, Calif. - Intercollegiate athletics is about much more than wins and losses. The physical and mental training augment the classroom experience and teach life's lessons. Intercollegiate athletic scholarships provide an opportunity for students who otherwise might not seek higher education. And numerous studies have shown that student-athletes outperform "average" students and are more likely to become community, educational and business leaders. This is the third in a series of Titan athletics success stories.
