Best Photos of 2010

2010 was filled with great sports moments in Santa Barbara so Presidio Sports collected its favorite images from the past 12 months to bring you back. Enjoy 2010 one last time!

Take a look back at some of our photographs from the past year, taken by Vince Agapito, James Sinclair, Randy Weiss, Blake Dorfman and John Dvorak.

Many great photos didn’t make the final cut, but only because we couldn’t include them all.

Here’s to 2011!!!

Akron went on to beat Louisville 1-0 for the title two days later.
