UCSB Club Sports Roundup, 1996 May 15

The UC Santa Barbara Rowing team competed in the Pacific Coast Championships in Sacramento, in the only UCSB Sport Club activity of the week. The lightweight Novice 4s did the best, with the women beating out Humbolt State and Seattle Pacific for a gold medal, while the men came second to Humbolt for the silver. The men's novice 8 also took home a silver medal finishing second to Orange Coast College, while UCSB's other medal was a Bronze in Men's single sculling. Coming in fourth in their respective divisions were the UCSB women's novice 8 and varsity lightweight 8, the latter finishing a mere half-second behind bronze medal winner UC San Diego. Other Gaucho boats in competition were the men's and women's novice 4s, who took twelfth and sixth place in their divisions, and the Women's Varsity 8, who finished fifteenth.

Only one upcoming sport club activity this weekend, but it's on campus, as the UCSB Triathlon team is hosting a public swim and run at the Rec Cen Saturday morning. Signups start at 8:30, and the event, a 700 meter swin followed by a four mile run, begins at 9.

And that's the Club Sports Roundup for the week ending May 15, 1996.
