Non-Revenue Sports Bruin Review and Calendar

UCLA continued to roll with a pair of wins over ranked foes, including a top 5 opponent (via official site)

I do these reports for two reasons. One is because we have so many outstanding teams at UCLA and it is my belief that these teams should get some recognition for their outstanding efforts, while the fans should know how well our Bruins are doing. The other is to encourage support for these teams and help them draw some fans to their games so they can have the support they deserve so head on out and check these teams out. My recommendation this week: Men's water polo at the brand new Spieker Aquatics Center with top-ranked USC in front of what should be a sell out crowd.

Women's Soccer

The #3 Bruins had only one match on their schedule last week, but it was a biggie. That match was a visit from #18 USC, a team that had never beaten the Bruins in Westwood. Jenna Belcher was the first to find her way onto the scoresheet as the Bruin scored just before the half. The Trojans would equalize in the 73rd minute though to knot the game up, however it took less than five minutes for Lauren Cheney to score the game winner on Senior Night and give UCLA a 2-1 win. Still undefeated against USC at home, the Bruins carry a 15-2-1 overall record into the season's final weekend. Stanford won their two games last weekend though so even at 6-1, UCLA will have no chance at the conference title when they head to the Washington schools this weekend.

Men's Water Polo

Nine was the number for #4 UCLA last week, as in nine goals. In both of their games, the Bruins scored nine times. The first game was a 9-6 victory at #5 Pepperdine and the second game was a 9-3 win over #8 Long Beach St., a game in which goalkeeper Chay Lapin made 21 saves. Now riding a six-game win streak, UCLA is 18-5 overall and 4-2 in MPSF play with a visit from top-ranked USC on top this week. UCLA will take on SC at the Spieker Aquatics Center on Saturday at 7 pm PST so head on over and cheer on our Bruins in what will surely be a packed house.

Men's Soccer

One match, one road trip, one loss. That was the weekend for #4 UCLA as the traveled to Creighton and came away losers. The Bruins struggled in the attacking third and got only five shots away in their 1-0 loss to the Blue Jays. Now 9-3-2, UCLA will resume conference play this weekend when Oregon St. and Washington pay a trip to Drake Stadium.

Women's Volleyball

#11 UCLA's up and down season appears to only be heading up right now. Winners of three straight and five of their last six, UCLA went to the Bay Area to take on a pair of ranked teams. First up was #14 Cal, who UCLA disposed of 25-20, 25-20, 16-25, 25-19. Next up was #4 Stanford, a team UCLA hadn't beaten since 2000. It took five sets, but the Bruins defeated the Cardinal for head coach Any Banachowski's 1,100th career win. The match included a thrilling 34-32 second set and a UCLA comeback in the deciding fifth set when they came from 8-4 down to win the set 15-11. Now winners of five straight and having won seven of eight, UCLA is 18-6 overall and 8-3 in the Pac-10, just one game behind conference leaders Washington. UCLA has just one match next week as they head to #16 USC on Friday.

Cross Country

It was the Pac-10 Championships last week, but neither the men nor the women fared too well. The men finished fifth without a runner on the Pac-10 first team, while the women finished seventh, also with a first team Pac-10 runner. The highlight of the weekend for the program was Meb Keflezigh, who became the first American to win the New York Marathon since 1982, as Tele noted.

Women's Tennis

She'd already partnered to win the ITA Regional doubles title and Yasmin Schnack was aiming for the singles title too, but the #2 seed Schnack lost in a three-set final to the tournament's #3 seed.

Men's Volleyball

Youth remains supreme. The current Bruins defeated the alumni Bruins in the alumni game, taking all four sets played.

Women's Golf

Poor team. The #3 Bruins are burdened by a trip to Hawaii for the Turtle Bay Collegiate this week.

Softball

A series of exhibition games versus local JC's begins this week with Palomar JC on Tuesday.

Men's Tennis

It's the So Cal Intercollegiate Championships and the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships for the Bruins this week.

Women's Swim and Diving

The swimmers have the week off, but the divers compete in the Trojan Diving Invitational this weekend.
