UC Santa Barbara, Lindenwood Release 2011 Schedules

"The flip side is this program has made it to the national semifinals or quarterfinals the last 7 years," said Ramsey. "But, of course, we're setting the bar higher than that."

The Gauchos are hosting the WWLL Championship Tournament April 16th - 17th so they have a respite of sorts at home after going through their run of Top 15 opponents in the regular season. UCSB is aiming for a sixth WWLL title overall in the twenty-one year history of the WWLL. The Gauchos have won four WWLL championships and had a runner-up year under two different coaching stints with Ramsey. The 2005 UCSB team won the WWLL title under former head coach Diana Garcia. Success at the conference level gets UCSB an automatic qualifier spot in the WDIA National Championship Tournament where they will face successively tougher and tougher teams each round.

"While I think we've played a difficult regular season schedule in the past we are truly going into the equivelant of some Class VI rapids with this one," said Ramsey. "We may get bounced around a bit along the way, but we will learn who we are as we brave it." By the end the UCSB team will have challenged themselves to the utmost and will see if they have what it takes to win it all.
