WILSON XL: Gregg Wilson (pictured above with Katie Records) commandeered his last home meet in 40 years as UCSB’s head swim coach last Saturday. The Gauchos outscored Cal Poly in both the men’s and women’s competitions. Still to come are the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships (Feb. 17-20) in East L.A. Wilson’s teams have won 39 titles (26 men’s and 13 women’s). “He’s the best coach I’ve ever had and the backbone of UCSB,” said Hoppe. Wilson said he’ll continue to help out next year. “He won’t have an office,” said associate head coach Matt Macedo. “We want him to go home.”
