2. Gauchos #RaiseTheCup At Men’s Golf Championship

With an exciting finish that came down to the final putt of the tournament, UC Santa Barbara, who entered day three with a six-stroke lead, narrowly escaped a charging CSUN team to claim its first Big West Conference Men’s Golf Championship since 1998 at the Sandpiper Golf Course (par 72; 7,093 yards) in Goleta, Calif.  Nick Swanson parred the 18th hole to give the Gauchos a team total of 852, which secured the team title by one stroke over CSUN, who closed an eight-stroke gap with consistent play but fell one stroke short with a team total of 853 (284-285-284).  Full Story

3. Meza Throws No-Hitter In Dominant 9-0 Win At UC Riverside

 Cielo Meza was perfect through four innings, and had plenty of support on the way to her first career no-hitter, as the Beach won 9-0 to close out the series at UC Riverside.  Meza was in control throughout the day, striking out seven and allowing just three walks on the way to the 32nd no-hitter in the history of Long Beach State softball. It was also the fourth shutout of the season for the redshirt freshman and her sixth complete game of the year.  Full Story
