West campus clinicians and Sports Council students cared for participants in this year’s Sea
Otter Classic, held at Laguna Seca Raceway, in Monterey, Calif.
For the fourth year in a row, the SACA
Sports Council on Palmer’s West campus
was the primary sports care provider
at the Sea Otter Classic, April 6-9, in
Monterey, Calif. The four-day event features
more than 10,000 professional, elite
and amateur riders who compete in road,
downhill, cross-country and slalom races.
Among the most common injuries cared
for in the Sports Council tent were
acromioclavicular joint separation on
the top of the shoulder and road rash
from minor accidents. Two days of rain
also made riders look like they were
competing in another cycling event for
which the Sports Council delivered care
in June, the Muddy Buddy.
