I received this email from Chancellor Norman Abrams:
May 14, 2007
A celebration of athletic achievement is upon us.
Yesterday, UCLA won its 100th NCAA team championship, the first institution to reach this milestone. The women's water polo team defeated Stanford, 5-4, and continued a tradition of winning unmatched in the history of college sports.
A few weeks ago, the Bruins clinched the annual Lexus Gauntlet Trophy by beating USC in head-to-head competition. The 2006-07 season marked the first time that UCLA swept the Trojans in football, basketball and baseball.
Tomorrow, at 11:30 am, there will be a ceremony on Spaulding Field commemorating these triumphs. First, we will present the Lexus Gauntlet Trophy to Athletic Director Dan Guerrero. Then you'll hear brief words from Dan, 19-time NCAA volleyball championship coach Al Scates, 6-time NCAA softball championship coach Sue Enquist, 8-time NCAA water polo championship coach Adam Krikorian and me, as I present Adam with his 2007 NCAA trophy, UCLA's 100th. (Spaulding is located immediately across from Pauley Pavilion's Gate 7.)
You'll be seeing and hearing elements of our "First to 100" commemoration throughout the 2007-08 academic year as the Athletic Department honors this remarkable accomplishment.
Please join me tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. on Spaulding Field.
Hope to see many of you there! GO BRUINS!!!
