Non-Revenue Sports Bruin Review and Calendar

Bumped. GO BRUINS. -N

Women's Soccer

The draw versus Brown last week caused the Bruins to drop a spot in the rankings as they currently find themselves at #2 behind Notre Dame. This week the Bruins hosted the UCLA Women's Cup where they played Miami (FL) and New Mexico. Miami was the first team on the slate and the Bruins easily disposed of the Hurricanes 3-0 as Christina DiMartino found the back of the net twice for UCLA. Against New Mexico the Bruins picked up another 3-0 victory, but the big news on the was the record UCLA set. UCLA set a school record with their seventh consecutive shutout as they extended their shutout streak to 688 minutes. The Bruins have no allowed a goal since their first game of the season and have outscored their opponents 20-0 in that span. Next up for the Bruins (7-0-1) is a trip to Santa Clara on Thursday, a game that will be televised live on Fox Soccer Channel.

Men's Soccer

Taking a page out of the women's book, the men's soccer team picked up a shutout in their only match of the week. A 2-0 home win over Santa Clara was UCLA's second win of the season as they improved their record to 2-3-1 on the year. The Bruins will play two matches this week, first a Thursday match at San Diego then a home match on Sunday versus Cal St. Northridge.

Women's Volleyball

The busy #4 Bruins had four matches on the schedule for last week, but they showed no sign of fatigue all week as they notched four wins. On Tuesday the Bruins went to Northridge for a match versus the Matadors and came away with a straight set victory. Next, the Bruins went to Evanston, Illinois for the Wildcat Classic where they swept through the tournament, beating Virginia, Georgetown and Northwestern. The Bruins lost only one set the entire tournament as they improved their record to 10-1, but the highlight of the weekend was the accomplishment of Nellie Spicer who reached the 5,000 career assist mark against Georgetown. Spicer moved to #3 on the UCLA career assist list and was able to do so in her home state of Illinois with her family and friends in attendance. This week the Bruins start Pac 10 play with a match at #5 USC. The Bruins and Trojans split their two games last season with each team winning at home. This would be a good match for Bruins fans all over LA to head over to and support the team at the Galen Center.

Men's Water Polo

Each year the NorCal Tournament brings out the nation's best collegiate water polo teams and this year was no exception as the nation's top 11 teams participated in the 16 team tournament, including the #4 Bruins. UCLA began the tournament with a 11-6 victory over #14 Pacific in the first round. The Bruins beat #5 Pepperdine 8-3 in the second round and upset top ranked Cal in the semi-finals 6-4. The Bruins came up one goal short in the title game, falling 6-5 to #2 USC and while a loss to the Trojans is a bitter pill to swallow the tournament proved the Bruins are indeed a national title contender. The Bruins are off until October 4th when they host #8 Long Beach St. at the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center prior to the football team's game versus Washington St.

Men's Golf

The #1 Bruins went to the Midwest for the Olympia Fields/University of Illinois Invitational, where they finished 12th. The Bruins put together solid rounds all weekend, but each day one player would put up a big number and drag the team score down. Lucas Lee and Eric Flores were UCLA's top men on the weekend, finishing 16th and 17th in the individual competition. The Bruins will be off until the Cal Poly Intercollegiate on October 6th.

Women's Golf

The #2 Bruins had last week off, but get back to action this Friday at the Mason Rudolph Invitational in Nashville, Tennessee.

Cross Country

Both the men's and women's teams were in Honolulu this weekend for the Big Wave Classic and while the setting would put anyone into a good mood, the teams' moods must have been considerably better considering both captured titles. The men dominated the meet as Bruin runners took spots 1-9, led by Laef Barnes, who took the individual title. It was the men's second title in as many meets. On the women's side, the Bruins weren't quite as dominant as the men, but the win will do just fine. Bruin women took five of the top 10 spots in the meet, led by freshman Katja Goldring who won the individual title and was UCLA"s top runner for the second consecutive meet. Both teams will jump back into action this weekend when they head to Palo Alto for the Stanford Invitation on Saturday.

Women's Tennis

The defending national champion Bruins don't start their season until the spring, but individual competitions take place all fall and winter long, beginning with the ITA All-American Championships this weekend. Four Bruins singles players were invited and three doubles teams got the nod as well. Action on the women's side begins on Saturday, while the men begin on October 2nd.
