Cross Country Freshman Recognized by Campus Organization

Oct. 31, 2003

Los Angeles, Calif. -- Cross country freshman Catherine Lima was named a 2003-04 recipient of the Balanced Living scholarship. The scholarship, presented annually by LMU fraternity Sigma Phi Epsilon, is awarded to one man and one woman of the freshman class who exemplifies the values of the fraternity, including scholarship, leadership, and athleticism.

The $500 scholarship rewards recipients for both their achievements in high school and early involvement on the LMU campus. Lima, a mathematics major, graduated from Bishop Amat High School in La Puente, Calif., with a 4.4 GPA. There, she competed in cross country, swimming, and track and field, serving as captain for two of the squads. The San Dimas, Calif., native was an All-Del Rey League selection her freshman through junior cross country seasons and was a CIF qualifier from 1999-2002. In 2001, she claimed the 1600m league title, and earned scholar-athlete honors her senior season.

As a Lion, Lima ran in the UC Riverside Invitational 5k and the Titan Invitational 5k. She also participates in the student alumni association and campus ministry.

Lima was selected from a large pool of students, as applications were mailed to the top 600 students of the freshman class based on high school transcripts and SAT scores. The 30 selected applicants were interviewed by the scholarship committee in September, and Lima was selected as one of the two recipients.
