Northwestern Mutual Student-Athlete of the Week, April 28-May 4

Fourth-year senior Jessica Smith helped lead Sacramento State’s varsity eight to an open-water victory over UC Davis on Saturday, May 3, at the Port of Sacramento. The team co-captain sat in the five seat for the Hornets’ top boat which posted a season-best time of 6:47.5 over 2,000 meters, besting UC Davis (7:07.1) by nearly 20 seconds. The victory allowed the Hornets to claim their 13th Jean Runyon Cup, a prize both schools have battled for annually since 1997. The Bakersfield, Calif., native has competed with the varsity eight in all 10 spring races this season, sitting in the five seat on eight occasions. A first team all-WIRA selection, Smith has a school record time of 6:55.6 on the 2,000-meter ergometer test.
