SAAC's Spirit of the Torero competition in full swing

March 28, 2012

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - This year marks the first year for the Spirit of the Torero Award. The Spirit of the Torero is a SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee) initiative on Facebook. It provides a forum for the USD student-athletes and their supporters to check out what the Student-Athletes are doing in their sport and in the community.

Torero student-athletes are everywhere. They fight for championships and step up for what's right. They support each other at competitions and serve their community. Torero student athletes know that success can only be achieved by reaching a little higher each day. This page will capture their actions and ultimately answer the question...Who has the SPIRIT OF THE TORERO?

Teams are given points based on the photos and postings on the Facebook page. At the year-end Celebration of Excellence banquet on May 7th, a team will be crowned the winner of the Spirit of the Torero Award.It will be a fight to the finish!

Below are the current standings for our top five teams:

WXC: 95
WROW: 90

The last day for teams to collect points will be Sunday, April 29th. Visit us at to find out who exactly has the spirit of the Torero.
