@LATechTandF's Wade Earns C-USA Postgraduate Scholarship Award
June 12, 2015
RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech sprinter Victoria Wade has been named as one of 14 recipients for the Conference USA Jim Castañeda Postgraduate Scholarship Award, announced by Commissioner Britton Banowsky and the league office Friday.
This marks the seventh year the award has been named for Castañeda, who served Rice University for 46 years as an educator, coach and Faculty Athletics Representative before he passed away in 2008. The conference annually awards the $4,000 postgraduate scholarships to graduates as selected by the C-USA Faculty Athletics Representatives and approved by the Board of Directors.
As a four-year letterwinner on LA Tech's track and field team, Wade qualified for the NCAA Championships all four years, including in 2015 in both relays and the 100 meters. She was a member of the 2015 Conference USA Outdoor 4x400 relay and earned third team all-conference honors in the 4x100 relay.
Wade recently completed her senior season at LA Tech and received her bachelor's degree in finance last month. The Shreveport native plans to remain in Ruston to earn a Master of Business Administration and pursue a career as a financial advisor.
