“I have only been in Riverside a short while” said UC Riverside Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Tamica Smith Jones, “but it became very evident to me early in my tenure that Sue Gozansky is one of the most important and revered members of our Highlanders family, and her influence on multiple generations of UC Riverside student-athletes is still being felt to this day. Sue is truly one of the great ambassadors for both the sport of volleyball and the city of Riverside, and she could not be more deserving of this honor.”

In addition, UC Riverside Women’s Basketball player Brittany Crain and Men’s Soccer player Michael Salazar were honored in the opening ceremony’s Parade of Champions.
