Women's Golf

Consistency is the key in any sport and the top-ranked Bruins have been awfully consistent in the fall 2009 season. The team's final tournament of the fall season finished just how the previous three had, with a second place finish at the Turtle Bay Intercollegiate. Stephanie Kono led the way for UCLA with a fourth place individual finish. The Bruins will not play again until February.

Women's Soccer

Going on the road didn't affect the #3 Bruins too much. Up in the Evergreen State, the Bruins began their weekend by beating Washington, 2-1. Lauren Cheney scored the game's first goal and after the Huskies tied it, Cheney struck once more to deliver UCLA the victory. Cheney's goal also broke the school record for game-winning goals as it was the 27th of the senior's career. Across the state in Pullman, UCLA defeated Washington St., 2-0, to finish up their regular season. The Bruins won 16 of their last 17 matches to finish 17-2-1 overall and 8-1 in the Pac-10. Due to Stanford's perfect 9-0 conference record, the Bruins did not earn at least a share of the conference title for the first time since 2002. The NCAA Selection Show, which could hand the Bruins a top seed, is tomorrow (Monday) at 5 pm PST on ESPNews.

Men's Water Polo

The fans packed the Spieker Aquatics Center, but the #4 Bruins just came up short in their 7-6 loss to #1 USC. Scott Davidson led the way for UCLA, scoring four goals in the game, but the Bruins could not hold onto the 6-5 lead they took into the fourth quarter. USC scored with 29 seconds left in the game to drop the Bruins to 18-6 overall and 4-3 in MPSF play. The Bruins will close out the regular season on Sunday afternoon when #9 UCSB visits Westwood.

Men's Soccer

The #5 Bruins are the 2009 Pac-10 Champions, their second consecutive conference title. The weekend opened with Oregon St. at Drake Stadium and there were two first half goals, but that was it as the teams were forced to settle for a draw. The weekend's next game was once again at home, this time against Washington. Goalkeeper Brian Perk saw one go by him early as the Bruins fell behind by a goal, but he did well to make four saves early on in the match to keep UCLA in it. Kyle Nakazawa then found the back of the net to even the match at a goal apiece, then in the second half, which the Bruins dominated, UCLA got another goal to win the match and conference. UCLA will conclude the regular season on Saturday with San Diego St. taking on the Bruins at Drake Stadium.

Women's Volleyball

One match often makes for a boring week, but that isn't the case when that match is versus USC. At Galen Center, the #7 Bruins and #17 Trojans squared off in a tough, five set match, but UCLA came out on top, 25-17, 14-25, 25-16, 17-25, 15-12. Amanda Gil had 16 kills for the Bruins, five of which came in the fifth set to give UCLA two wins in as many matches versus the Trojans. The win is also UCLA's sixth straight as the improved to 19-6 and 9-3 in the Pac-10. The Bruins are now alone in second place in the Pac-10, a half game behind #4 Washington, who UCLA will host on Saturday, a day after they host Washington St.

Women's Tennis

The Bruins' top representatives at the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoors were Andrea Remynse and Yasmin Schnack, who teamed up for a run to the semifinals of the doubles tournament in Connecticut.

Men's Tennis

Matt Brooklyn and Kallim Stewart were the Bruins' top performers last week as they took the doubles crown in the SoCal Intercollegiates.

UCLA will compete in the Gifford Collegiate Championship at Cordevalle beginning Monday.

Cross Country
