Grabow honored at UOP

STOCKTON, Calif. – Senior cross country runner Becky Grabow, a Sierra Lutheran High graduate, was selected as the Tigers’ Competitor of the Month for November.

Only nine student-athletes earn the distinction every year at UOP, and Grabow is the third to garner the award during the 2015-16 academic year. The Competitor of the Month Award is given each month to a Pacific athlete who demonstrates unusual or remarkable competitive effort, focus, and discipline.

During November, Grabow closed out her final season at Pacific with a trip to the NCAA West Regional race where she lead the way to the team’s highest finish in program history. For the last four years, Grabow has been of workhorse for the team, not only for workouts but she has also made sure Tigers’ annual high school event runs smoothly. She has been instrumental in planning recruiting weekends. In addition to her time training and studying, Grabow is a special education major who spends her time helping kids with special needs.
