Gaucho Men's Track Wins Big West Crown

Against all odds, the UCSB men's track and field team rallied together to win their first Big West Championship...in over 40 years. But in a sport that often touts individual victories, this win was truly a team effort, an effort that in the end has made all the difference. The UCSB men concluded competition Saturday afternoon with a total of 179 points to defeat the previous defending conference champion, Long Beach State who scored 150 points.
