KICK OF COLOR
This season, Jordan Angeli ’08 works as the radio color analyst for the Colorado Rapids home games alongside play-by-play commentator Conor McGahey. “To be asked as a female to call a men’s MLS game speaks to how much the game has grown in the U.S.,” she says. While at SCU, Angeli played on the Under-20 and Under-23 U.S. national teams, going on to play pro soccer for four years. She spent 2016 broadcasting on screen as host of “Colorado Rapids Live.”
THE GUARD OF MANTUA
Italy called, and Jared Brownridge ’17 answered: The Santa Clara men’s basketball alumnus signed a contract to play for Pallacanestro Mantova in the northern Italian city of Mantua. Brownridge, a three-time, first-team All-West Coast Conference choice, ended his career ranked second on SCU’s all-time scoring list and fourth in league history, with 2,313 points. He also ranks first in Santa Clara history in 3-point field goal percentage, second in 3-pointers made (385), and fourth in free-throw percentage.
