UCSB Men’s Volleyball Players Score Academic Honors

Ben Brockman, Max Klineman, Andy McGuire and Jake Rosener are named to the All-MPSF Academic team.

Four UCSB men’s volleyball players have been recognized for their efforts off the floor by being named to the All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Academic team. Included on the list are Ben Brockman, Max Klineman, Andy McGuire and Jake Rosener.

Brockman, a senior libero, had a 3.24 GPA as a physics major. The San Diego native played in 25 of 27 matches and averaged 1.7 digs per game, third on the team.

A junior setter, Klineman holds a 3.13 GPA as a history major with a minor in education. From Manhattan Beach, Klineman split time at setter with Vince DeVany, racking up a team-best 676 assists.

McGuire boasts the highest GPA of the four, a 3.5 in communications. The redshirt freshman saw action in 72 of 98 games as a libero and led the Gauchos with an average of 1.97 digs per game. McGuire also hails from Manhattan Beach.

A biology major, Rosener posted a 3.22 grade point average. The sophomore outside hitter played in 22 matches and 45 games and established most of his career-highs in 2008. Rosener is from Cupertino.

Brockman and Klineman were also All-MPSF Academic selections in 2007.

To be considered for the honor, a student-athlete must possess a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA, must be at least a sophomore academically, and must have competed in at least 50 percent of the team’s games.

Scott Flanders is UCSB‘s associate media relations director.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
