Thanks to all who came out to support our special on-campus edition of ‘Roadrunner Rundown’ on Tuesday, it was a great turnout and a great environment. Here’s the show in case you missed it.
A very special thanks to CSUB softball, water polo and CSUB wrestling for providing a great backdrop for the event. What an atmosphere.
