Non-Revenue Sports Bruin Review and Calendar

Women's Golf

UCLA entered the Arizona Wildcat in Sonora, Mexico as the nation's top ranked team and with one round left in the tournament, the Bruins are right where they expected to be...atop the leaderboard. The Bruins are three shots clear of #2 Arizona St. and nine shots ahead of #3 USC.

Women's Gymnastics

For the first time since the season opener, #3 UCLA did not win a competition. The Bruins went to Lincoln, Nebraska to compete in a four team meet and came up one tenth of a point short of #12 Nebraska. Vanessa Zamarripa recorded her second perfect 10 in as many weeks and third of the season. If you want to see what a perfect vault looks like, here's a video Zamarripa's vault from two weeks ago. While Zamarripa dominated the vault, Elyse Hopfner-Hibbs led the Bruins in the all-around and tied with a Nebraska gymnast for the all-around title. This week the Bruins will travel to Corvallis to face off with #8 Oregon St.

Women's Water Polo

The #3 Bruins had a strong week, but seem to be unable to break into the nation's upper echelon this year. They kicked off the week with a 11-8 win over #3 Hawaii behind Priscilla Orozco's third hat trick of the season. After that the Bruins went south for the UC Irvine Invitational where they picked up a dominating 18-2 victory over #13 Long Beach St. in the first round. In the second round the Bruins more than doubled up #5 Cal as they won 9-4 to set up a semifinal matchup with #1 USC. The Bruins fell behind early, fought back, but came up a goal short as they lost 8-7 before beating #3 Hawaii in the third place match. The Bruins are now 11-3, but 0-2 versus the nation's top two (USC and Stanford). This week the Bruins have only one match, a trip to #10 Arizona St.

Softball

#6 UCLA dropped a game two weeks ago that caused a two spot drop in the rankings, but yet another string of strong performances at the plate carried the Bruins to a very impressive week in Cathedral City last week. The week began with the Bruins scoring three first inning runs versus #1 Alabama en route to a 4-1 win over the nation's top ranked team. UCLA hit five homers in their next two games, a 4-2 win over #15 UMass and a 12-1 win over NC State. The Bruins notched two more wins to complete their perfect 5-0 week with a 5-0 win over Maryland and a 10-2 win over #14 Fresno St. UCLA now sits at 12-2 on the season with home runs in all fourteen games as they get ready for another busy week. The Bruins play at Cal St. Fullerton on Wednesday, then travel south for the San Diego Classic, which has the Bruins scheduled to play five games.

Men's Tennis

#6 UCLA had only one match this week, but it was a heated one. In the recent past, both UCLA and Baylor have won national titles, each beating the other in the national title match. Since those two national title matches, the Bruins and Bears have played each other four times and in each instance the final score was 4-3. This was true again on Sunday as the Bears defeated the Bruins 4-3 in Waco. The Bruins once again lost the doubles point, but they fought back ins ingles play and the score was 3-3 with one match left. That match went to the Bears 3-6, 6-1, 6-1. This week, games versus the Bay Area schools are on the slate as the Bruins play at #7 Stanford and #23 Cal.

Women's Tennis

The Bruins' two losses two weeks ago dropped them from #3 to #8 in the rankings, but they looked good last week scoring a 6-1 win over Loyola Marymount, then another 6-1 win over Hawaii. UCLA will play a pair of matches at the LA Tennis Center this week as Pepperdine and #15 Fresno St. visit Westwood.

Men's Volleyball

It was another tough week for the eight ranked Bruins as they dropped a pair of matches to good teams. UCLA was quickly swept aside by #3 Pepperdine on Wednesday, then lost to #5 USC in four sets on Friday. The two losses dropped the Bruins below .500 as 7-8 and 3-5 in conference play. They will look to jump back on to the right side of .500 as they host Long Beach St. on Wednesday and play at San Diego on Saturday.

Women's Basketball

It was a tough week for Nikki Caldwell's Bruins. They got a break two weeks ago when USC was upset, moving the Bruins into a tie for fourth place in the Pac 10, but they gave that game back on Thursday with a 59-49 loss at Washington. It was only the Huskies' second conference win of the season as the Bruins clearly struggled offensively without Doreena Campbell. Campbell missed the game to injury and without their leading scorer, the Bruins shot only 29.8% from the field. With Campbell back on the floor, the Bruins ran past Washington St. 65-50 behind Campbell's 24 points. The Bruins (16-9, 7-7) now sit in fifth place in the Pac 10 and will need a strong Pac 10 Tournament if they are to have any hope of making the NCAA tournament.They do have a chance to put a couple great wins in their resume this weekend as they host #3 Stanford on Thursday and #4 Cal on Sunday, with that Sunday game live on FSN at noon PST.

Men's Golf

#22 UCLA will begin their 2009 spring season with the USC Invitational in Thousand Oaks this week.
