The Cal State Fullerton men’s track and field team won the Big West Championship for the second straight year and for the second time in program history on Saturday at Cal State Northridge.
The men’s team scored 154 points to win the title over Long Beach State, which was second with 136.5 points. UC Davis had 121 points in third place.
The Cal State Fullerton women’s squad took fourth place with 98 points, three points behind CSUN, which had 101 points in third place. Long Beach State won the title with 122 points while UC Santa Barbara had 120 in second place.
“I’m very, very proud of our group,” Cal State Fullerton head coach John Elders said. “Both the men and women competed really hard and put it all out there. We came together as a team really well and supported one another. I think the fruits of that is that we were able to put together this kind of performance.”
