Cece Tuzak, Women's Track & Field, Week of May 6-14

Pirate freshman Cynthia "Cece" Tuzak has been dominant in the discus throw all season. The Ventura High School product has won nine of 10 competitions this season, and eight in a row after taking the gold at Saturday's Southern California Regionals in Riverside. Cece had a strong first throw that put her in good position to qualify for the CCCAA State Championships May 17-18 in San Mateo, allowing her to go for it. And Cece most certainly did, unloading the discus for 129'8" on her second throw, putting her well ahead of the pack.  In fact, Tuzak's best three throws of the day all surpassed the distances achieved by the second and third place finishers. For her efforts, Cece has been named this week's VC Pirate Student Athlete of the Week.
