UCLA cruised through the tourney's first two rounds via www.magazine.ucla.edu

Women's Soccer

Top seeded UCLA has been to the past six College Cups and it is clear that they have set their sights on a seventh consecutive appearance. UCLA opened the 2009 NCAA Tournament with a home match versus Boise St. and the Bruins disposed of the Broncos with ease. Sydney Leroux tied a UCLA postseason record with four goals as the Bruins made quick work of the Broncos, 7-1. In the tournament's second round, the Bruins faced San Diego St., again at home. The Aztecs did little to get in the Bruins' way though as Leroux found the net twice more in UCLA's 5-0 victory. The Bruins (19-2-1) will now host a Round of 16 match on Friday versus Virginia, who upset fourth seeded Penn St. in the second round. The Bruins knocked the Cavaliers out of the 2005 and 2007 NCAA Tournaments.

Men's Water Polo

It was the final game of #4 UCLA's regular season and the Bruins ended it with a 9-7 win over #10 UC Santa Barbara at the Spieker Aquatics Center. On Senior Day, senior Scott Davidson scored twice to move into a tie for fifth on the school's career scoring list, while senior Chay Lapin made seven saves to move into a tie for third on the school's career saves list. The MPSF Tournament begins on Friday at USC's McDonald's Swim Stadium, where the Bruins, who are 19-6 overall and 5-3 in conference, are the #4 seed.

Men's Soccer

The fifth ranked Bruins had already wrapped up the Pac-10 title when they took on San Diego St. in the final game of their regular season, but with the NCAA Tournament coming up, a win was on the Bruins' minds in hopes of securing a higher seed and carrying some momentum into the postseason. The win was not to be though as UCLA fell behind 1-0 for the fifth consecutive match. Kyle Nakazawa scored in the match's 83rd minute to even the score, but that would be it and the Bruins had to settle for a 1-1 draw. The Bruins (10-3-4, 5-1-4), who have secured a tournament berth thanks to the conference championship, will find out their tournament fate on Monday at 2:30 pm PST when the draw is announced on ESPNews.

Women's Volleyball

The #6 Bruins went from second, to first, to third in the Pac-10 in a span of about 24 hours. UCLA entered the weekend second in the Pac-10, a half game behind #4 Washington. On Friday night, three Bruins registered double doubles and UCLA defeated #25 Washington St., 25-23, 25-14, 23-25, 25-23. That same night, Washington lost to USC, moving the Bruins into first in the conference. On Saturday night, the Bruins and Huskies squared off at Pauley Pavilion, but UW defeated the Bruins in straight sets to end UCLA's seven-match win streak. The win moved Washington back into half game lead over UCLA, while #7 Stanford won their two matches this weekend to move into a tie with UW. UCLA (20-7, 10-4) will be in Oregon to play the Ducks and Beavers this weekend, their final road matches of the regular season.

Men's Golf

#17 UCLA competed in the Gifford Collegiate Championship, where they finished fourth. #2 Stanford won the tournament and two Bruins, Pontus Widegren and Pedro Figueiredo registered top 10 individual finishes. The Bruins won't take to the links again until February.

Women's Basketball

UCLA's 2009-2010 season got off to a rough start when they traveled to Iowa City for the Hawkeye Challenge and lost their opening game to Illinois St., 61-55. The Bruins bounced back in the consolation game of the tournament to beat Santa Clara in convincing fashion, 77-51, behind Erica Tukiainen's 21 points. The 1-1 Bruins will host Hawaii on Thursday and play Utah in San Diego on Saturday.

Women's Swimming and Diving

The Bruins had a pair of Pac-10 meets in the desert last weekend and split them. First, UCLA beat Arizona St., 160-140, to win their second Pac-10 meet of the year, then the Bruins fell at the hands of #4 Arizona, 176-123. Now 3-1 overall and 2-1 in the Pac-10, UCLA will compete in the Belmont Cup beginning Thursday.

Women's Tennis

At the ITA National Collegiate Indoors, fourth seeded Andrea Remynse and Yasmin Schnack advanced all the way to the semifinals where they lost a three set match to the tournament's #2 seed. The team is now off until after the new year.

Men's Tennis

Matt Brooklyn and Kallim Stewart, the tournament's third seed, won the Southern California Intercollegiate Championships, hosted by UCLA. Like the women, the men are off until after the new year.

Cross Country

At the NCAA West Regional Championships, the men finished in seventh place, but did have one individual, Marco Anzures do well. Anzures earned All-West Region honors with an 11th place finish and will likely receive a bid to the NCAA Championships.

Baseball

UCLA will host their Blue-Gold World Series, three intrasquad games that conclude fall practice, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at Jackie Robinson Stadium. All three games have a first pitch time of 3:30 pm PST and admission is free.

Softball

The Bruins conclude their fall exhibition games this week versus Biola and College of the Canyons.
