USC senior Jo Kremer was announced as the 2018 Pac-12 Beach Volleyball Scholar-Athlete of the Year on Monday. The award is given annually to an athlete who excels both in the classroom and in their respective sport. Kremer is the second-consecutive Trojan to win the award for beach volleyball, after Nicolette Martin received the honor last season. Senior Jo Kremer sets up her teammate for a shot. Sunny Dong | Daily TrojanKremer, who is originally from Pacific Palisades, Calif., is currently finishing her degree as a communication major and holds a 3.72 GPA. After transferring from Notre Dame’s indoor volleyball team in 2014, Kremer has been one of the key factors to the Trojans’ recent dominance in collegiate beach volleyball. Last week on Senior Day, heach coach Anna Collier spoke about Kremer’s contributions during her time as a Trojan. “Jo helped carry us to three national championships,” Collier said. “She was part of the foundation of what we’ve had for the past few years.” Before winning the Scholar-Athlete of the Year award this season, Kremer was named on the conference’s all-academic second team in 2016 and 2017. On the sand this season, Kremer has a 23-8 record individually and boasts a 19-7 record when paired up with fellow senior Jenna Belton, good for third-most on the team. Kremer will look to help carry USC once again on their quest to repeat as both Pac-12 and NCAA champions.According to the Pac-12 Conference, the Scholar-Athlete of the Year must be a senior in terms of athletics and be on track to receive a degree. They also must have maintained a GPA of 3.0 or higher, partaken in at least half of the contests in their respective sports and spent at least one year living at their school. Every Pac-12 school is allowed to nominate one individual per sport, and the winners are then chosen by a committee of conference staff at the end of each sport’s regular season. The accomplishments of the athletes in their sports are also taken into consideration when choosing a winner.

Tags: Team of the week United defeated Spurs to reach FA Cup final where they will face ChelseaArsenal won their first game after manager Arsene Wenger announced that he will be stepping down at the end of the season and the 4-1 result over struggling West Ham was nothing short of convincing. The champions City continued outclassing opposition and it was Swansea’s turn to be blown away as they were humiliated 5-0 at the Etihad. West Brom continued their late surge from the bottom of the pile as they managed to grab a point at home to high flying Liverpool and there were two draws in other games that may have relegation implications come season close.With only five games played in the Premier League over the weekend, i am compelled to include the FA Cup action that saw both Chelsea and Man United qualify for the final of England’s oldest cup tournament.Here are the eleven players that stood out over the weekend.GK. Jack Butland(Stock City).The Englishman made six saves during Stock City’s 1-1 draw with Burnely over the weekend.His place in Russia come June may not be secure as of yet but if he can pull off performances like the one he put out on Sunday, he will surely be at the World Cup.Jack Butland made six saves in the 1-1 draw with BurnelyRB. Ceaser Azpilicueta(Chelsea).Their semi-final win over Southampton was routine and much of their spirited performance was down to that man Cesar Azpilicueta, who keeps finding Alvaro Morata in the box with great balls.CB. Phil Jones(Manchester United) .It is not easy to keep Harry Kane at bay in any game and Phil Jones did it with ease over the weekend. His positional awareness was top notch over the and one would ask themselves whether it is the same man that played in the 2-0 loss at the same stadium just over a month ago.CB. James Tomkins(Crystal Palace).Was ever present at the back as Palace draw 0-0 away to Watford over the weekend. Kept both the physical Stefano Okaka and Troy Deeney under wraps all day long.LB. Nacho Monreal(Arsenal).So the long goodbye has begun. Arsene Wenger’s farewell to Arsenal fans started with a reasonable performance against an unfortunate West Ham.The game certainly didn’t reflect a 4-1 drubbing of the Hammers. However, it took a defender to get the party started and a fabulous strike by Nacho Monreal.Nacho Monreal scored Arsenal’s first of four goals scored against West HamMF. Ander Herrera(Manchester United).Against Spurs in the FA Cup semi-final, Herrera did all of those things and much more. He took care of Mousa Dembele in the first half and then imposed himself on the rest of the game.MF. Paul Pogba(Manchester United).Against Spurs, however, Pogba was the player on the pitch who saw the pass – and was not afraid to play it. The cross for Alexis Sanchez for the opener was superb.Paul Pogba was magnificent throughout the semi final win over SpursMF. Kevin De Bryne(Manchester City).A guard of honor was provided by Swansea, and quite rightly, for the newly crowned champions. What a performance by Manchester City. All the Swans could do was admire it.Leading the chorus were Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva. De Bruyne scored what can only be described as a classic. He has now scored five goals from outside the box in the Premier League this season, the most of any player.FW. Alexis Sanchez(Manchester United).He always turns up for the big games. Alexis Sanchez has found it difficult at Old Trafford since his arrival from Arsenal but he has always been at home at Wembley.Sanchez has scored eight goals in his eight appearances at Wembley for club and country, including six goals in five FA Cup matches.FW. Edin Hazard(Chelsea).The assist he made for Giroud to open the scoring can’t explain how superb Hazard was all day against Southampton. If he is in such a mood, Chelsea can topple any opposition but unfortunately for the Blues, he has not done that all season.Edin Hazard assisted the first of Chelsea’s two goals against Southampton in the FA Cup.FW. Alexander Lacazzete(Arsenal).Only striker who banged a brace over the weekend and that propels the little Frenchman to get into my team of the week.Lacazzette was the only striker who scored a brace over the weekendCoach: Arsene Wenger(Arsenal).His first game in-charge after the long awaited stepping aside announcement and at a certain point, many feared that it would turn into deserter like so many games have turned out to be.Fittingly, he will manage my eleven players from last weekend as a tribute to the great things he has achieved over the 22 years at Arsenal.Comments
