A senior water polo standout, Golic set a new UCSB career scoring record Sunday when the fifth-ranked Gauchos defeated 16th-ranked Concordia, 10-6, at Campus Pool. Golic recorded a hat trick in the win over the Eagles, bringing his career goals count to 246, topping Larry Mouchawar's previous school record of 244, which was set during the 1983 season. The native of Belgrade, Serbia, and three-time All-American tied the record three minutes and 23 seconds into the second quarter. He then made the record his own just a minute and 33 seconds later with his 245th career goal.
Golic wasn't the only Gaucho to recently add a title to his resumé as Gregory was named UCSB's latest Legend of the 'Dome on Oct. 1. The program, started in 2009, immortalizes the Gaucho athletes and coaches that consistently turned in (and continue to turn in) legendary performances inside of a legendary building. The Volleyball Hall of Famer and the only coach UCSB women's volleyball has known is just one of five coaches to amass over 800 career wins. As a player, the "Queen of the Beach" was tabbed the Women's Beach Tournament Player of the Year five times.
It will be Williams' first appearance of the year on Talk'n Gauchos. He'll provide a preview of this season's Gauchos, which won the Big West regular season and tourney titles and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2010. Williams will also get fans fired up for this Friday's (Oct. 15) Duke to the 'Dome and 10 O'Clock Thunder events. Following the 5 p.m. women's soccer game against UC Davis and the 8 p.m. nationally televised (Fox Soccer Channel) men's match vs. Duke at Harder Stadium, fans will march over to the Thunderdome to help tip off the 2010-11 men's and women's basketball seasons.
