Tim Vom Steeg, Carlene Mitchell, and Jenna Wilson to Appear on This Week's "Talk'n Gauchos"

"Talk'n Gauchos" will have a trio of guests this week, as UCSB Athletics will welcome men's soccer head coach Tim Vom Steeg, women's basketball head coach Carlene Mitchell, and women's volleyball junior middle blocker Jenna Wilson to the program.

"Talk'n Gauchos" is broadcast every Tuesday at 6 p.m. from the Beachside Bar and Cafe located on Goleta Beach.

Tim Vom Steeg and his third-ranked squad started Big West Conference play this past week with a win over No. 24 UC Riverside and a draw with Cal State Fullerton. Vom Steeg's side will return to Harder Stadium this week, hosting UC Irvine on Friday night and Cal State Northridge on Sunday afternoon.

Carlene Mitchell will be on the program speaking about the "Links and A Legend" event that will take place next Monday, Oct. 8. "Links and A Legend" is an event that will combine a keynote address by legendary coach C. Vivian Stringer, dinner with the 2012-13 Gauchos and an exclusive round of golf with the UCSB coaches.

Jenna Wilson, a middle blocker on the women's volleyball team, will be featured as part of the ongoing "Great Examples" program. Jenna, who will become the second four-year African-American player in program history, will speak about defying the qualities expected of a women's volleyball player. Wilson is having a solid campaign for the Gauchos, leading the squad with 1.15 blocks per game.

"Talk'n Gauchos" can be heard over the air on KZSB AM 1290 the Santa Barbara News-Press Radio Station and online at UCSBgauchos.com from 6-7 p.m.
