Classroom

Ashlee Guay is a top student-athlete at CSUN, owning a 3.51 cumulative GPA and a 3.44 GPA in her major. Ashlee has worked as both a mentor and a tutor for her fellow student athletes since fall 2012, and she is the main tutor for Child Development and Spanish and also tutors freshman writing. Guay is someone who always goes above and beyond what is asked of her and is often the one who can break through to some of the most at-risk student-athletes. She is a leader on the academic staff and always takes initiative—one of the staff’s best problem-solvers. She has made the Dean’s List four times and also earned Varsity N Honors, CSUN’s top recognition of academic achievement by student-athletes.

Character

A team captain since her sophomore season, Guay is one of the unquestioned leaders of the CSUN women’s basketball team in 2014-15. She is a tough, determined competitor who grinds and works for every basket, every steal, every moment. She is a natural leader and uses that trait to motivate and inspire her teammates and other student-athletes. She has been a member of the CSUN SAAC and is a constant presence at nearly all CSUN athletic events. Lightly recruited out of high school, Guay has never let anyone define her. Since arriving on campus, she has displayed a work ethic and commitment that is rarely matched or replicated. As a point guard, that leadership extends to her work on the court. This was especially evident during a recent training exercise the Matadors did with Navy SEALs. She will be hard to replace, but she has completely turned the program around in her career and has set a new precedent for future teams and Matadors.

Community

Guay is an active member of her community, both in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles and in her hometown of San Diego. Since arriving at CSUN, she has participated in numerous trips to Granada Hills Elementary School to promote reading and writing. She also has spent countless hours working as a both a tutor and mentor to her fellow student-athletes. Guay has served as a member of the CSUN SAAC, helping the group with numerous initiatives, including Adopt-A-Family during the holiday seasons, coin drives and other activities. She has participated in a pair of walks to raise awareness and funds for AIDS and has participated in numerous beach clean-up projects along the coast of Southern California.

Competition

Since arriving on campus, Ashlee Guay has quickly and consistently rewritten the CSUN record books. She was named the 2013-14 Big West Player of the Year, the first Matador in school history to win her league’s top individual honor. She has set new school records in steals and assists with a full season still to play. She was named the 2014 Big West Tournament MVP after leading CSUN to the Championship and an appearance in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. She enters her senior season ranked fourth in school history in career points, fourth in career field goals and third in career 3-pointers. She needs 20 steals this year to enter the Big West Conference’s career top 10 for the category. She has started all 96 games of her collegiate career and has never missed a game. She has earned All-Big West honors in all three of her playing seasons.
