As Gonzaga sports fans know, 2018-2019 was an incredible year to be wearing Gonzaga purple. Of the 14 varsity teams that compete for league championships, 10 earned titles. And on top of that, Eagle teams won two DCSAA championships. Here’s a quick video recap celebrating Gonzaga’s unprecedented reign.
