Named in memory of the noted Bay Area developer for whom McKeon Pavilion is named, the award is presented to one male and one female student distinguished both as outstanding athletes and scholars.
A softball student-athlete from Lodi, Musgrave is considered one of the top college math students in the United States. Last summer, she interned for 12 weeks at the National Security Agency (NSA) in Maryland, home to America’s codemakers and codebreakers where math plays a central role in its mission to defend U.S. government information systems and gather intelligence.
Rahon, a San Diego native who has one season of eligibility remaining, was named the West Coast Conference Newcomer of the Year after transferring to SMC from Boston College. He was named to the WCC’s All-Academic Team and recently earned a position on the 14th Annual Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association (DI-AAA ADA) Scholar-Athlete Team.
Musgrave is the first softball student-athlete to win the award since Bronwyn Russell in 2008. Rahon is the second-ever men’s basketball player to earn the honor. He joins Matthew Dellavedova (2013) as award recipients.
Musgrave and Rahon will each graduate from Saint Mary’s in May.
Additional SMC athletics awards will be presented at the annual Gael Awards Show next month.
