Tommy Medica ’10 is in his third professional season with the Padres. Last year, Medica hit .330 for Single-A Lake Elsinore with 19 homers and 87 RBIs in 93 games.
While playing for Santa Clara, Medica suffered a devastating injury that dislocated the shoulder of his throwing arm when he was sliding into second base. “Eventually, my goal is to catch again,” Medica recently told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “If I can throw well enough to catch again, my chances are going to get a lot better. It’d be huge. And my arm feels 10 times stronger than it did last year.”

Lindsay Bruce ’10 made appearances on this season's NBC reality show The Voice.
Her early accomplishments helped set her on a path that led to an appearance on “The Voice,” but it was a long, sometimes difficult journey. At 13, the Santa Rosa native wrote a book and a song about having lost her uncle on 9/11. In high school, she became an international model and local celebrity. All along, though, she wanted to write and sing her own songs, so after graduating from Santa Clara University, Bruce headed to Nashville to pursue the one dream that still eluded her.
