UCLA catcher Stacey Nuveman, a four-time NFCA first team All-American, was honored by the NCAA last night in Anahiem, Calif., as a member of the ÒTop VIIIÓ for 2002.

A member of the 2000 U.S. Olympic gold medal softball team, she was a finalist for the 1999 Sullivan Award, which recognizes the nation's top amateur athlete. She holds the NCAA career home run record (90), and also set the career slugging percentage record as a senior. In 2002, she set the single-season slugging percentage record. Her career batting average of .466 is third best in NCAA history. As a senior, she led the country with a .529 batting average. She was named all-tournament at the 2002 Women's College World Series and was named to USA Softball's World Championship team. A three-time Honda-Broderick Award finalist, she was nominated for an ESPY Award as 2002's best female collegiate athlete.

A consistent member of the UCLA athletics director's honor roll, she graduated with a 3.160 grade-point average in sociology with a public policy minor and earned first-team conference all-academic honors.

Among her many community activities, she worked as a volunteer for "I'm Going to College," escorting inner-city children at campus sporting events and encouraging them to think about higher education. A participant in UCLA's pen pal program, she also served as a coach/teacher at softball camps and clinics around the country, representing UCLA and the U.S. national softball team.
