UCSB Freshman Carter Clemmensen Earns Big West Honor

UC Santa Barbara freshman forward Carter Clemmensen was named Big West Offensive Player of the week after a sensational start to his collegiate career, it was announced on Monday afternoon. 

A prolific scorer at the prep level, the 6-foot-3 Clemmensen made made a seamless transition to the Division I level thus far, scoring two goals over the weekend to help the Gauchos start the season 2-0. 

In Friday night's season-opener against St. John's, Clemmensen came on as a substitute in the 28th minute and headed in the first goal of his career, and UCSB's first of the season, off a Hunter Ashworth throw-in in the 41st minute. 

On Sunday, the Paradise Valley, Ariz. native tallied his second game-winner in a row with a beautiful one-touch, turn and fire into the back of the net after Thibault Candia and Joseph Ammer set the play up in the midfield in the 56th minute. 

After Friday night's match, head coach Tim Vom Steeg spoke highly of the freshman.

"We've said it all preseason and into (last weekend's) Westmont game, when the ball seems to hit the back of the net, somehow Carter is involved in the goal," Vom Steeg said. "He seems to have a knack for that, and that got us going in the game."

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!
