Pacific University alumni keep active in athletics.

Answering the Country’s Call

Sally Roberts ’06 has continued to wrestle since leaving Pacific for USA Wrestling’s Olympic Development Program. She is a psychological operations specialist with the 324th Psychological Operations Company, based in Aurora, Colo. At 33, the former college national champion and Olympic alternate returned to wrestling last winter, winning her weight class at the Dave Schultz Memorial International Tournament.

College Football Playoff

Pacific had at least two connections within the teams vying in the NCAA Division I-FBS College Football Playoff. Jim Radcliffe ’80, longtime strength and conditioning coach at Oregon, supported the Ducks’ run to the national title game. Former Pacific defensive backs coach Paul Gonzales is a graduate assistant at Texas Christian, helping the Horned Frogs to Big 12 and Peach Bowl titles.

It’s Like Hitting an Eagle

Noah Horstman ’06 has made a career out of his passion for golf. The former All-Northwest Conference golfer was named the 2014 Teacher of the Year for the PGA’s Northern Ohio Section. He is director of instruction at Beechmont Country Club near Cleveland.
