UCSB Men's Lacrosse Announces 2010 Recruiting Class

Santa Barbara, CA The University of California, Santa Barbara Men's Lacrosse team is excited to announce a strong in-coming freshman class. The Gauchos were challenged to fill several positions vacated by graduating seniors, but a successful recruiting season seems likely to fill the gaps. Twenty-five players round out the list, with 19 admitted directly to UCSB and six enrolled at Santa Barbara City College with the intent to transfer.

Head Coach Mario Waibel said, "We are very excited at the level of talent of this year's recruits. We were able to find players at every position to push our returners and make an immediate impact to the lineup. This is a great group of driven and accomplished individuals and we are confident they will provide both short and long term answers to keep UCSB on the national stage."
