Game of the Week: College Track & Field Championships at UCSB

UCSB’s Track Got Major Upgrades Ahead of the Big West’s Flagship Meet

UCSB’s track underwent extensive renovation to make it suitable for the conference’s flagship meet. Defending team champions are the Cal State Fullerton men and Long Beach State women, who eked out a two-point win over UCSB (122-120) last year. Erinn Beattie of UC Davis, the runner-up to Hope Bender in last week’s heptathlon, is among the nation’s leaders in the high jump (6′¾″). UCSB junior Katie Camarena has a hot rivalry with Cal Poly’s Miranda Daschian in the women’s 1,500 meters, edging her by 0.21 seconds in their dual meet.
