SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Senior men's water polo player Milos Golic has been named UCSBgauchos.com Gaucho of the Week after breaking UC Santa Barbara's career goals record on Sunday in a 10-6 win over No. 16 Concordia.
The Belgrade, Serbia native became the most prolific scorer in UCSB history when he scored his 245th career goal in the second quarter against the Eagles. He posted a hat trick in the win to bring his career count to 246 goals. The previous school record was set in 1983 by Larry Mouchawar, who posted 244 goals while at UCSB.
Golic leads UCSB with 34 goals this season and ranks second in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation with his 2.62 goals per game average. He tallied 53 goals his freshman season, 82 as a sophomore and 77 as a junior.
The senior is a three-time All-American and two-time first team selection. He has the chance to become just the fourth four-time All-American in the history of UCSB Athletics.
The Gauchos, who are 9-4 on the season, also tallied a 15-6 victory over Harvard on Sunday. Fifth-ranked UCSB will be back in action on Sunday, Oct. 17 when it hosts Stanford in the Gauchos' MPSF opener at Campus Pool. The Cardinal are coming off of a victory over previously undefeated USC.
