Inside the Black and Gold: All Department BBQ

The sweet and tangy smell of delicious pulled pork sandwiches filled the air as the warm afternoon sunshine welcomed the LBSU student-athlets and Athletic Department to the annual All Department BBQ Wednesday afternoon on Sept 8th.

Friendly competition was the name of the game as the 49er teams geared up and faced off in a round of water balloon toss and showcased their talents in a Karaoke showdown.

As water balloons were exploding left and right, the Dirtbags; the Men's Baseball Team prevailed, coming out on top as the winners.

A karaoke showdown ensued, as each team danced and sang in front of three judges. From Shakira to Black Eyed Peas to Aretha Franklin, students belted out their favorite tunes.

The BBQ was a great success as the student-athlets, coaches, and staff members got a chance to mingle and enjoy the begining of the school year.

As the fall sports season swings into full gear, come out and cheer for the LBSU team at the home games! Let's show all the other Big West schools that 49ers have the most spirit!
