The UCSB men’s soccer team continued to elevate it’s program after another successful season. Despite not repeating as Big West champions, the Gauchos accumulated 14 wins this season increasing its win totals by two and extending its double digit win seasons to 14 straight. After earning a first-round bye, Santa Barbara’s biggest win came in the form of a NCAA tournament victory over South Carolina in the second round. UCSB’s second round victory has been the first time since 2011 that the team has moved on this far along the tournament.
