Santa Barbara Sports Roundup: Sticks, Balls, and Sneakers

FLASH ON THE TRACK: Lightning strikes in the vicinity caused a precautionary stoppage of the Big West Track and Field Championships at UCSB on Saturday. When the meet resumed after more than an hour, Hope Bender ran like lightning in the 400-meter hurdles. The UCSB senior stopped the clock at 56.64 seconds, shattering her school record, cleaving almost a second off the meet record (57.69 by Cal Poly’s LeBren Martin in 2003), and moving her up to No. 3 on the NCAA leaderboard. “It was my last 400 hurdles race as a collegian,” said Bender, who left Cal State Northridge’s De’Andreah Young in the dust on the homestretch. “I wanted it more.” -- Santa Barbara Independent
