Different Strokes
Led by Emily Adamczyk’s national breaststroke title, UC San Diego finished second place on the men’s side and a third on the women’s at the NCAA Division II Swimming & Diving Championships, under co-head coaches Corrie Falcon and Matt Macedo.

Twenty-Six Game Streak
Although it came to a disappointing close three steps short of an NCAA Championship, coach Charity Elliott’s women’s basketball team delivered perhaps the finest season in UC San Diego’s history. The Tritons, who finished 30-3, won their first 26 games in a row, seized their third CCAA regular season championship and were ranked No. 1 nationally for seven weeks.
