With national rankings and two undefeated teams in men’s basketball and swimming and diving, SDSU Athletics is starting 2011 off just as strong as it finished 2010. With several records and national appearances last year, the Aztecs are looking for more of the same in 2011.
Not only did teams reach new heights and student-athletes perform at record levels, but fans also came out in supporting Aztecs near and far.
