The "Spring" 2007 WCRC tournament at San Jose
State completed our regular season, and made for quite a twist
to our 2006-2007 season.
The strong Sacramento Men’s team finally pulled off a victory
this year, winning this tournament with 860 points! Stanford and
Berkeley fought for a closely contested second place, finishing
with 760 and 705 points respectively.
Players new to the WCRC this year are making a big impact ...
