ATHLETES OF THE WEEK
Taylor Racich, Dos Pueblos volleyball — Racich had a match-high 21 kills on Tuesday in a 4-set win over rival Santa Barbara. Three of the four sets went down to the wire, and Racich delivered on the crucial points in front of a big crowd at Sovine Gym. Much of the credit also goes to her twin sister, Tristan, who was setting the ball to her and dished out 43 assists.
Sam Garza, UCSB Soccer — Garza recorded a hat trick for the Gauchos in a win over Cal State Northridge last week. It was the first 3-goal performance for the Gauchos since Chris Pontius accomplished the feat against UC Irvine on October 3, 2007.
