Committee Proposes New Features for WebReg By Natalie Covate Senior Staff Writer Proposed changes to TritonLink and WebReg include the possibility of allowing students to switch sections without dropping a class. Other possible changes include a new mobile site and being able to register on any smartphone, though the committee has not announced an official launch date for the changes to take effect. “There will be lots of changes in integration which [ACS] needs to work on,” TritonLink Executive Committee undergraduate representative and Campuswide Senator Karen Liang said. “A lot of people have come to me saying that it’s difficult having a lot of tabs open [for registration], so we’re making this all one window.” The schedule of classes, class planner and registration sign-up time are among the registration tools that will be included in the single-window WebReg. The TritonLink Executive Committee is also discussing changing the calendar feature so students can add personal events, extracurricular activities and work schedules to their planner in order to see if there are time conflicts. “We’re going to make TritonLink a lot simpler,” Liang said. “We don’t even know if we are going to call it WebReg after this because [the changes will affect] the whole toolbox [of TritonLink].” In addition, students can now register for classes via smartphone by using the m.ucsd. edu mobile website. The iPhone application will also be run

Council Impeaches Marshall COLLEGE Senator Impeached senators says she will not appeal decision to A.S. Judicial Board. By Rebecca Horwitz Associate News Editor A.S. Council impeached Marshall College Senator Summer Perez at its meeting last Wednesday, Nov. 8. According to the A.S. bylaws, councilmembers with more than three unexcused absences are eligible for impeachment. Perez had five. At the Committee Affairs meeting Nov. 8, councilmembers brought up legislation to excuse Perez’s absences. The motion was tabled indefinitely, meaning that it could be brought up anytime in the future. Perez said that she didn’t want the legislation tabled and instead wanted to excuse her absence sooner. The issue was brought up again


during the night’s council meeting. According to Perez, she was impeached because her reasons for excusing the absence — sickness —  were inadequate. Marshall Student Committee Vice Chair Brianna Nelson spoke during the Nov. 8 meeting’s public input period. Nelson said it was unacceptable for Perez to ignore the attendance rules. “The purpose of a senator is to represent our voice,” Nelson said. “I find it inexcusable to ignore the rules you put in place.” Advocate General Courtney Hill motioned for the impeachment of Perez. The meeting was closed for nearly an hour, while council discussed whether to impeach Perez. Perez said the discussions revolved around personal issues instead of addressing the absences. “It was completely biased against me,” Perez said. “It got so personal to the point where

Facebook was involved, which was completely irrelevant to the whole situation.” Perez said she will not appeal the council’s decision. “If somebody doesn’t want me in office that bad that they’d have to [impeach me], then there’s no point for me [to stay],” Perez said. “I can still grow in other ways and still be involved on campus.” Marshall College Council will now reopen Perez’s position so interested students may apply to become her replacement. After reviewing new applications and conducting interviews, Marshall College Council will recommend a candidate to A.S. Council, which will need to approve the final appointment. At this time no other councilmember has three unexcused absences. Readers can contact Rebecca Horwitz at

Students claim proposed change would double commute time for residents of downtown area.

Hillcrest, Old Town Shuttle Routes to be Combined

The Hillcrest/Campus shuttle route could be combined with the Hillcrest/Old Town route by next April, according to a proposal announced by UCSD Transportation services on Nov. 7. If approved, the consolidation of the shuttle services will take effect April 2, 2012. “Stop UCSD Hillcrest Shuttle Cuts” petition organizer Ramin Hashemi first heard about the proposal in mid-October, when Transportation Services posted a flyer near the Hillcrest shuttle stop and shuttle drivers passed around an informational sheet to riders. According to Hashemi, Hillcrest residents without cars depend largely on the current Hillcrest/Campus shuttle to commute to school. For example, Muir College senior Nena Eichelberger moved to Hillcrest after transferring to UCSD because of the transportation services. “I moved to Hillcrest and sold my car because the shuttle was here,” Eichelberger said. “Those decisions were made based on the transportation system that UCSD provided.” According to Hashemi, the proposed shuttle service change could double the length of the commute for students who live in Hillcrest, North Park, Mission Hills, City Heights and other neighboring areas. “[The current commute] is 20 minutes back and forth, which is not bad at all,” Hashemi said. “With the addition of the stops, it could take at least 35 minutes to get to La Jolla with traffic. Adding Old Town could make it 45 to 50 minutes, maybe even an hour in really bad traffic.” Hashemi has responded by creating a Facebook event urging students to protest the change, compiling a survey to gauge student usage of the current shuttle route and creating a petition to save said route. This was done to gather information for the Nov. 14 and Nov. 15 student input sessions hosted by Transportation Services. As of press time, 46 students have signed the petition. According to Hashemi, the current route already poses difficulties to students staying on campus in the evenings, since the buses leave every hour starting at 7 p.m. and run until 9 p.m. “If they were to consolidate it, they need to add more frequency [of the shuttles] and extend the hours to 10 p.m., 10:30 p.m. or 11 p.m.,” Hashemi said.

A Leave of Absence

Angela Chen

The California State System will experience an exodus of five of its university presidents next year, prompting a selection process that is crucial for the future of the California college system.



his year alone, presidents at four out of 23 California State Universities have retired, and another five are projected to retire in the coming year from San Francisco, Northridge, Fullerton, San Bernardino and the California Maritime Academy. According to Cal State Chancellor Charles B. Reed, there has never been a time in the university system’s history when there were this many administrative vacancies and retiring employees. The reason for this sudden trend has been speculated to correlate with the high number of college professionals at retiring age — the mean age of college presidents is 61. The executive position has also become increasingly stressful over the last few years due to the poor economy and its relentless toll on the California education system. The Cal State system enrolls a staggering 412,000 students, the largest amongst other four-year colleges, and is facing funding cuts of around 650 million dollars. Potential cuts will total nearly 100 million dollars and a 21 percent tuition increase is in the near future. Presidents who are hired at a time like this must be able to deal with a

slew of problems — student and faculty anger over tuition hikes, limited class selection and lower wages — all while under the harsh criticism of the board of trustees. There is no doubt that the replacements found for Cal State campuses must be qualified to change the status quo, and the current selection process has candidates jumping through hoops. The Cal State Board of Trustees along with the Board of Trustees’ Special Committee on Presidential Selection and Compensation decides on the president after a primary and secondary review panel as well as a campus visit. There has been a movement to eliminate the campus visit to streamline the application process, which is important to ensure that positions are filled by the upcoming school year. Some argue that this will increase anonymity in the selection process, but there are other ways to bring a face to a resume efficiently, such as the use of conference video calls.

QUICK TAKES Voter Fraud is Not Prevalent Issue

ID Law Increases Voter Security



he proposed voter ID law purports to stop widespread voter fraud — a crime that simply does not exist. The voter ID law is only effective in preventing impersonation of other voters at the polls. Most states use provisional ballots, which are used when voters cannot prove upfront that they are eligible to vote. Their votes are recorded, but are not counted unless they provide the required documentation to poll workers. For this reason, the problem of impersonation fraud is largely unlikely. Out of the 400 million votes cast in general elections since 2000, there’s only one recorded attempt at impersonation fraud, and nine unresolved cases where the crime was suspected but not proven. Many accusations are improperly labeled as “voter fraud” when they are mistaken for other types of election misconduct. Allegations include ballot tampering, inaccurate vote tallying, vote buying, voting by ineligible citizens and multiple voting in the voter’s own name — all misdemeanors that should not be looped into the category of voter fraud. Furthermore, allegations that arise from unsubstantial claims make voter fraud appear far more prevalent than is actually the case. Technological glitches in voting machines, for example, can result in inaccurate tallies. Honest mistakes are also oftentimes at fault — a convict may attempt to vote without knowing that he has been rendered temporarily ineligible to vote. Some cases of fraud are enacted by outside actors and not the voters themselves– in the past, opposing parties have intentionally spread misinformation as to the proper procedures for voting, or hired thugs to intimidate voters at the polls.Voter fraud has only ever existed in a few isolated cases — implementation of this law is unnecessary and would simply divert attention away from real election issues. — Hilary LEE

n Nov. 8, Mississippi became the 31st state in the past decade to approve tougher voter ID laws. Supporters say that these laws are good cautious measures that uphold the integrity of the voting process by keeping it secure and democratic. While some groups such as the NAACP and ACLU are considering challenging the laws in court with the claim that the language in the laws is vague and could suppress minority votes, Chris Elam, a spokesman for the Republican Party of Texas disagrees. He says that the law includes a “laundry list” of exemptions for people who may have a hard time obtaining the required identification, such as living more than 50 miles away from the closest DMV. These laws are necessary to eliminate voter fraud. Without ID checks at the polls, there little to no way to track how many illegal votes are cast. From stuffing ballot boxes during the Gilded Age to the Georgia State Senate Seat in 1962 where supposed voters were out of town or incarcerated at the time, the United States has had a long history of electoral fraud. The Georgia State Senate race involved future president Jimmy Carter, who was able to get the results overturned. Sen. Joey Fillingale (R-Miss.) says that the laws create more open and honest elections, and while the law isn’t a cure-all, it keeps people “in the cemetery” from voting. The fact of the matter is, the United States holds a long history with voter fraud and these laws add an extra safeguard of security and integrity in the voting process, help cut down on fraud and ultimately keep the voting process democratic. — Aleks Levin

Political Scheme in Disguise


ike the Jim Crow laws of the past, new legislation is being passed that would significantly affect the voting rights of those without government-issued identification. By passing voter ID laws, politicians restrict the right to vote of minorities, the poor and the youth who disproportionately vote Democratic. About 11 percent of voters nationwide will be affected by these new laws, according to the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU. Specifically, 15 percent of low-income voters and 18 percent of young voters will be restricted because they don’t have proper identification. This is especially troubling since 68 percent of voters ages 18 to 29 voted for Barack Obama in 2008. The NAACP states that 25 percent of blacks do not have the proper documentation to vote under these laws, and 74 percent of blacks lean Democratic, according to the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies. This year 34 states have considered voter ID legislation — five of which have already passed laws. Of these five, Wisconsin and South Carolina will be battleground states in 2012. Considering that Republican governors passed these laws and how disproportionately Democratic the affected people are, it is undoubtedly an underhanded political move. It is blatantly obvious that some Republicans are enacting these laws to disenfranchise Democratic-leaning voters. The Republican House Speaker of New Hampshire, Bill O’Brien, said these laws should be passed to restrict college students who will vote liberally. Conservative blogger Matthew Vadum argued that letting the poor vote is un-American since they will vote for additional welfare programs. The Brennan Center concluded 44 millionths of 1 percent of votes are cast fraudulently. There is no problem, only a cheap political scheme to get ahead. — saad asad

trackers and the thought police, George Orwell’s political classic has become the tired go-to for anyone threatened by big government — and even, as of last Tuesday, for members of the government itself. On Nov. 8, the novel was referenced six times by the Supreme Court while hearing the case of whether police should be able to track anyone via GPS. Here’s the story: Police convicted suspected drug dealer Antoine Jones (the Jones in this United States v. Jones case) due to evidence gathered from a GPS planted in his car. The evidence was thrown out when the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled it as violating the Fourth Amendment (no unreasonable search or seizure) because the device was planted without a warrant.  At first glance, planting a tracking device seems to be analogous to ransacking or bugging a citizen’s house, both of which violate the Constitution. But prior cases about tracking, and the pace of advancing technology, are raising new questions about privacy — to the point where the current debate is mainly focusing on the semiotics of whether placing a GPS in a car is “searching.” The heart of the case is about the potential of technology and the precedent this case would set by redefining the public and private spheres.  This isn’t the first time the Supreme Court has faced a tech-related privacy case. Take United States vs. Knotts, the 1983 case that ruled that police could track cars moving interstate ia beepers, since someone traveling in public shouldn’t have any expectations of privacy under the plain view rule. According to Deputy Solicitor General Michael Dreeban, quoted in the Washington Post, information people choose reveal to the world, “such as movements in a car on a public roadway” are unprotected. Under the Knotts ruling, GPS tracking should be allowed. But in 1983, GPS devices didn’t exist, we weren’t experiencing 500-percent increases in Manhattan security cameras and the notion of “electronic privacy” was relatively new. But today, when GPS-enabled iPhones serve as the world’s most effective security blankets, the public and private are converging and we are closer to losing our notion of both than ever before. Thankfully, the justices seem wary of following the Knotts ruling too closely, and have been questioning whether the police could bug them (answer: yes). Ultimately, new technology applied under old rulings and old times could mean that bugging license plates or clothes in the name of mass surveillance is seen as essentially the same as beepers in cars — after all, people are in public places, so it should all be permissible.



Quite Frankly By Lior Schenk


Anti-Privatization Rally Was Misrepresented

Salary Increases Unnecessary for Solid Candidates ▶ Presidents, from page 4 dents must be prudent, yes, but the process must be efficient enough to account for the dire demand for presidential replacements. In the past, university trustees have increased college presidents’ salaries to sky-high amounts in order to attract more distinguished administrators. This summer, Elliot Hirshman, the new president of San Diego State University, was offered an annual salary of $400,000, a $100,000 pay increase from the previous president. Steep salary increases may attract a wider and perhaps more promising applicant pool, but California salaries are by no means low. Other states are facing the similar budget cuts, and according the Chronicle of Higher Education’s executive compensation database, California’s executive salaries are in line with other states that have major public higher education systems like Texas and New York. The managing principal of AGB Search, Jamie Ferrare, said that the number of applicants vying for these top positions makes the competition intense; attracting candidates to the position isn’t the issue,

it is all about state universities choosing the right person. In response to this salary raise, many lawmakers including Gov. Jerry Brown proposed legislation that limits the power trustees have on setting compensation for campus administrators. This will ensure that others also have a say in how much Cal State administrators get paid, to avoid drastic decisions made solely by the board of trustees. Ultimately, well-experienced presidents are stepping down from their positions and it is important that Cal State Universities find suitable replacements to run their campuses. UCSD will face a similar situation this coming year when Chancellor Marye Anne Fox steps down after her seven-year term. It is crucial that schools focus on finding strong leaders for their campuses by streamlining their selection procedures and being realistic about the fact that perfect replacements will not be hired just by increasing monetary compensation.

Dear Editor, Last week there was a rally against budget cuts and tuition increases. Since the 2000-01 school year, expenditure per student has gone down 17 percent while tuition has increased 242 percent. These changes were coupled with state divestment in higher education. In 2000-01, tuition was 19 percent of expenditure per student, but in 2011-12 tuition will be 46 percent of expenditure per student. The cost of higher education is shifting from the California public to the private individual. Your coverage of last week’s rally was both unflattering and factually inaccurate. The event was planned as a response to the potential plan to increase tuition by 80 percent over four years. We did not learn that the Regents had all but rejected this plan until a week before the rally, when much of our publicity and message were established. Furthermore, one person said ‘occupy this crosswalk’ once. No one ‘screamed’ it while we marched through the cross walk, and no chant of ‘occupy crosswalk’ occurred, which could justify referring to the entire event as ‘Occupy Crosswalk.’ A video on YouTube of the rally can attest to this egregious journalistic fabrication, which (while humorous to those actually there) betrays the complete failure of your staff to complete simple fact checks or actually attend events they cover. Public education is a public good and an individual right. A welleducated population is a more capable work force and a better prepared electorate. In an advanced-industrial or service economy, denial of access to higher education may be the denial of the ability to get a job. And denying a person the ability to work for a liv-

ing is denying that person the right to exist. Higher education, at that point, becomes a human right. We are attending, teaching for and working for the UC in a time of crisis. The public good and human right of public higher education is in jeopardy of being permanently dismantled. Students, faculty and staff have been all but excluded from the decision-making process reserved for a constitutionally and democratically autonomous Board of Regents. However, the Regents should not even have to make crisis decisions. But citizens of California have been hamstrung by Prop 13, which limits taxation on corporate property and imposes super-majority requirements on the state legislature to pass state budgets and tax policy. We all have a responsibility to defend public education by helping to fix the university system and the state. Last week on the same day as “Occupy Crosswalk,” Cal students engaging in peaceful civil disobedience were repeatedly struck by police who were attempting to disperse them. Violence against peaceful protesters is violence against free speech, since it invokes fear in those who would otherwise speak freely. There is a vigil in response to this unfortunate event in front of Geisel at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15. —Kevin Quirolo Marshall College, Senior ▶ The Guardian welcomes letters from its readers.

n the battle against obesity, San Diego has clearly chosen the (winning) side of artery-clogging, heartpounding excess with its uniquely local creation, the California burrito. Vallarta, Don Carlos, Rigoberto’s and Cotixan may boast a delightfully “authentic” sketchy atmosphere and relatively low prices, but by and large, their burrito quality stays the same. A different salsa here, more crisp fries there — each burrito packs a homespun punch that keeps students arguing for days about their favorites. But the best may well be Lucha Libre. The shop is the furthest from

the casbah 2501 kettner blvd., little Italy

campus, but its over-the-top decor and Surf ’n Turf take on the SoCal classic gives the California burrito a seafood spin that is unmatched by the other options on the list. Oh, and they use fresh avocados. Win.

he small, cozy and family-owned Rockie’s Frozen Yogurt will win you over with its fresh red velvet yogurt. The froyo is smooth and flavorful — without the duck faceinducing tart of most froyo places. With the largest variety of fresh-tasting and sugar-free yogurt — ranging from basic strawberry to mocha chip and the more adult butter rum — it’s no wonder that Rockie’s is a popular, locally acclaimed favorite for traditional frozen yogurt. Yogurt Mill is another local spot worthy of the hype, with its delicious, generously served proportions. Seriously, stack a 2-liter yogurt monster for only $6.50 — Go big or go home. As for the rest: Definitely try Yogurt on the Rocks’ unique Pacific Beach Berry flavor, topped with coconut lychee. Chain Yogurtland is a great, affordable choice for fans of tart and icy froyo. And Penguin Yogurt Factory sells 100 percent fatfree froyo that’s melt-in-your-mouth soft — plus 42+ unique toppings that include four different flavors of mochi and ten dessert syrups.

But only Balboa Park has it all: fantastic museums, massive awe-inspiring architecture and the world-famous San Diego Zoo. Still not sold? Three words: Japanese Friendship Garden.

Extraordinary Desserts is a required stop for any chocolate enthusiast. The Little Italy location features an expanded menu of savory items, beer and wine, while the original Balboa Park spot dishes up the same famous desserts (featured on The Food Network’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate”) without the extras and in a more intimate setting (candles and all), perfect for enjoying cake and coffee with a hot date or a group of friends. For those who get sweet-tooth drunchies, Babycakes in Hillcrest — a bar that serves desserts with extra sweet cocktails — is the perfect remedy.

he Lyceum, Cygnet and Old Globe are all smaller venues offering older (read: not as comfortable) seats and sets, and occasionally, parking obstacles. Although a spot in any of these theatres guarantees an intimate, almost eye-to-eye view with the actors, the setups definitely lack the scrolls, balconies and historical architecture of the more expensive Spreckels Theatre. To compensate, two of these venues offer show discounts. The Cygnet offers half-off prices if you decide to return for another showing of the same performance (perfect for gifting tickets), and the Old Globe — located near beautiful Balboa Park — has $20 tickets for attendees who are under 30 (just show your ID at the box office). Closer to home, a main draw of the La Jolla Playhouse is its convenient location right next to Revelle College. In addition to boasting four theatres that can accommodate both larger and smaller productions, and easy parking for the off-campus crowd, it offers a “pay what you can” program. For one Saturday matinee of each play, 100 tickets — two maximum per person — are on sale for $1 minimum. — Angela Chen

defender Hayley Johnson teed up for 10 corner kicks in the campaign, but the Tritons were unable to finish.     The game ended with a Johnson corner kick that found the head of junior Britnee Chesney. The attempt missed just over the crossbar.       “The team played as well as they have played within the last month or so, but today was just one of those days,” said McManus. “It wasn’t meant to be. The ball wasn’t going to go in the back of their net. [Chico State] got one decent scoring opportunity and they took it.”       The Tritons end a season that, at its start, seemed

to be the most promising that the program had seen in a good many years. UCSD finished the regular season at the top of the conference with only one loss. But the Tritons may have peaked there, as they fell to Cal State Stanislaus in the conference semifinals before crashing out of the national tournament.    The game marks the last match for UCSD’s nine graduating seniors: Courtney Capobianco, Sarah Garland, Katie Kuykendall, Lindsay Mills, Sara Spaventa, Annie Wethe, Kristin Armstrong, Sarah McTigue and Shelby Wong.

Tritons Close Out Regular Season ▶ VOLLEYBALL, from page 12 attempts in a row. But the veteran adjusted her game to record several dinks over the blocker’s heads for points. Brunsting had a good game against the Pioneers with 13 kills for a total of 17.5 points. She also had 20 assists and an amazing .333 hitting percentage. Leadership from the Tritons’ Big Three: Condon, Brunsting and Williamson, who combined for 40 of the 55 Triton kills. Condon racked up her ninth double-double of the season with 11 kills and 18 digs, while Williamson led the Tritons, banging in 16 kills, 18 digs and a service ace to compliment her .382 hitting percentage. Williamson joined Brunsting in also surpassing the 1,000 mark for career kills. Cal State Monterey Bay didn’t know what hit them as they went down Saturday in three sets 25-23, 25-18 and 25-16 to the Tritons, who had lost to them earlier in the season. The game marked the last regular season game for seniors Brunsting, Condon, Freidenberg, Werhane, Williamson and Natasha Wilroy. Wilroy finished the season on a high note, throwing down 11 kills, while Wehane had 24 digs. The Tritons will now move on to NCAA Tournament play. With the second-seed in the West, the Tritons will face Grand Canyon — which came in second in the PAC West Conference. Grand Canyon has a 22-6 record and a veteran line-up that will test the Tritons. If the Tritons advance, they will await the winner of the game between Sonoma and Hawaii, but will probably go into the second round to face Sonoma. Hawaii-Hilo has the worst record in the tournament and has not seen tournament play since 2009. If UCSD can make it past the second round, the Tritons

will probaby face No. 1 San Bernardino, which remains in perfect form at 27-0. To go deep into the tournament and upset San Bernardino’s perfect season, UCSD’s freshmen and seniors will have to come together and up their level of play. The Tritons have shown glimpses throughout the year, but have failed to string them together to produce dominant performances like those shown by San Bernardino. A focused, united Triton team has a great chance to take it all, but if it starts to fall apart with no one to step up, then UCSD won’t see the second round. Readers can contact Nick Howe at

UCSD makes a second-round exit from the NCAA tournament after dropping 1-0 to Chico State.

By Rachel Uda Sports Editor


he UCSD Women’s Soccer team ends its season with a 13-3-4 overall record, losing against Chico State at home for a secondround exit from the NCAA National tournament.     The Tritons received a first-round bye with the first-seed, awaiting the winner of the bout on Friday between Chico State and Cal State Stanislaus.       The first-round match pitting the Wildcats against the Warriors — a repeat of the CCAA conference championships last weekend, Nov. 6 — went into double overtime. Still drawn 1-1, the match was finally decided in penalty kicks, with the Wildcats scraping past Stanislaus for the win.     Although Chico State played 110 minutes just two days prior, the Wildcats did not seem fatigued in their second-round matchup with the Tritons.     In the opening minutes of the match, UCSD controlled the ball in the Wildcats’ half, doing

first-team some time to regroup and attack in the second half. But at this point in the match, Chico seemed the dominant squad, pushing further into UCSD’s half of the field.   “Give [Chico State] credit. They played very well and good luck to them next weekend,” said McManus.”     At the start of the second half, the Wildcats seemed intent on holding their 1-0 lead, staying compact and double-teaming the Triton forwards. Despite the high pressure, UCSD continued to record good chances on goal, registering three times as many shots than the Wildcats.       With the score still 1-0 late in the second half and the Tritons’ forwards still tied up, UCSD tried launching balls deep into Chico’s half for their outside midfielders — senior Shelby Wong and junior Jessica Wi — to run onto. The wingers ran the ball down the flanks and worked them out for corner kicks. Junior

well to control the tempo of the game. The Tritons had a few dangerous chances, recording three shots and four corner kicks more than the Wildcats in the first 20 minutes.    But in the 24th minute, Chico State brought on midfielder Megan Tabler. With her first touches on the ball, Tabler collected a flat UCSD goal kick sent into the middle of the field, dishing the ball wide to forward Lisa Webster. Deep into the Triton goal box, UCSD senior goalkeeper Kristin Armstrong challenged Webster, but the forward was just able to slide onto the ball to put the Wildcats up 1-0.       Down 1-0, UCSD continued to attack, but was finding it increasingly difficult to get past the defense-minded Wildcats, who play with an unorthodox fiveman backline and only one striker up top.       With the clock winding down in the first half, head coach Brian McManus replaced all of his starting midfielders and forwards with reserves in hopes of giving the

Triton Volleyball, Ready for Postseason By NICK HOWE Associate Sports Editor WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL—As the regular season comes to an end, the Triton Women’s Volleyball team sits high and looks forward to an 11th visit to the NCAA Tournament. Last year, the Triton women went into the postseason ranked No. 4 in the West region, cruising past Sonoma State in the first round before falling to Cal State San Bernardino in the second. This year, the Lady Tritons enter the NCAA tournament ranked No. 2 in the West and are bracketed to play No. 7 ranked Grand Canyon in the first round, to be followed in the second round by the winner of the matchup between Sonoma State (21-6) and Hawaii Hilo (15-6). The team did well against Sonoma last year in the tournament, but lost to them earlier this year

in regular season play. Now, after the Tritons were swept in three games last week by perennial CCAA top dog Cal State San Bernardino, an opportunity to play in the quarterfinals seems like a long shot unless UCSD is lucky enough not to face San Bernardino, which plays last ranked Alaska Anchorage (18-8) in the first round.     UCSD plays strongest when the talented yet inexperienced freshmen are directed by seniors Katie Condon, Roxanne Brunsting and Hillary Williamson. Despite the loss against San Bernardino this past weekend, Williamson came up with several kills in a row to tie the first game at 8-8. This brief highlight was followed by a rash of UCSD errors, resulting in their lowest attack percentage of the season at just .046 (27-22-117). Williamson recorded 11 digs to go over 1,000 career digs in the game, but it was not enough to

counter San Bernardino’s Samantha Middleborn — the AVCA National Player of the Year — who had 15 kills and six blocks, leading the Coyotes to the win. The Tritons picked themselves back up when they played Cal State East Bay on Thursday. In the first set, the Tritons looked tired from their previous loss, making nine errors that cost them the first game 23-25. The Tritons rallied back in the second game. Although they committed eight errors, they eventually took the game 25-22. After the second game, the Tritons brought their errors down to three in games 3 and 4, to win 25-15 and 25-16. Senior outside hitter Condon initially struggled in the second game against East Bay’s front line, who blocked several of her kill

CCAA/GNAC SHOOTOUT FRIDAY, NOV. 11 Seattle Pacific 47 UC San Diego 68 Seniors Lauren Freidenberg and Chelsea Carlisle led the Lady Tritons to a 68-47 win over Seattle Pacific in their first game of the CCAA/GNAC Shootout. All-American guard Carlisle finished the game with 17 points, while 6’1” forward Freidenberg led all scorers with 19 points and nine boards. The two were the only players on the Triton roster to score in the double digits. UCSD got off to a slow start, falling behind Seattle Pacific in the opening minutes. The Tritons did not take the lead until the thirteenth minute of the game, with contributions from the perimeter by sophomore guard Nicole Anderson-Jew, who scored eight points. But overall, UCSD had a difficult time from behind the arc, shooting just 44 percent. The Tritons made up for it in the paint, with their forwards playing well in the paint. In the second half, UCSD ran away with the lead, ending the game by outscoring the Falcons 22-6.

Sunday, Nov. 13 Western Washington 75 UC San Diego 72 The No. 13 Tritons closed out the CCAA/GNAC Shootout with a commanding 79-60 win over Western Washington. UCSD showcased its sharpshooters on Sunday, converting 31 of its 61 attempts. Carlisle, who was awarded the tournament MVP, put together another standout performance with 27 points. Junior guard Emily Osga was also named to the AllTournament team. Osga bounced back to score 22 points against the Vikings following a subpar performance just two days before against Seattle Pacific, in which the guard only contributed two points. Again, UCSD had to come from behind, as Western Washington raced out to take the lead. With just over five minutes left to play, the Tritons tied the score at 25 with a pair of free throws from senior guard Daisy Feder. Buckets from Osga and Carlisle pushed the lead out to 11 before the end of the half. In the second half, the Tritons extended the lead, ending the game 19 points over Western Washington.
