Stephanie Rothstein was named the Golden1/ucsbgauchos.com Student-Athlete of the Week Monday after a weekend in which she placed herself in the annals of UCSB athletics. At the Stanford Invitational, Rothstein set the Big West and UCSB record in the 10,000, coming in at a time of 33:27. The time was a minute and a half better than the old record and also qualified Rothstein for the NCAA Championships and the USA Track and Field Championship. In 2005 it would have ranked her sixth amongst NCAA competition and 19th among Americans. The 2004 Olympic year, Rothstein's mark would have been fifth in the NCAA and 17th in the U.S.
