Non-Revenue Sports Bruin Review and Calendar

Women's Gymnastics

The #2 Bruins were exposed to an illness two weeks ago that forced the cancellation of practice last Monday-Wednesday and the cancellation of the team's meet versus Stanford last weekend. The meet will not be made up, but the two teams will both compete in the Pac 10 Championships laster this season. This Sunday, the Bruins will host Washington, Cal St. Fullerton and Boise St. in a four team meet.

Women's Tennis

#3 UCLA went on the road for the first time last week and picked up a 5-2 win over Pepperdine in Malibu. The Bruins were scheduled to play UC Irvine last week as well, but that match was postponed due to rain and will be made up at a later date. This week, the Bruins (4-0) will head to Madison, Wisconsin for the National Team Indoors.

Women's Water Polo

The #3 Bruins split their four games last week. First, the Bruins beat #15 Long Beach St. 13-4 in Long Beach, then they headed to Palo Alto to compete in the Stanford Invitational. The Bruins opened the tournament with a 13-6 victory over #10 San Jose St., but they dropped their next two matches. UCLA lost to #4 Hawaii, ending their 46 match win streak at the Stanford Invitational, then they lost to #2 Stanford in the third place match. The Bruins (5-1) will host #6 San Diego St. and #11 Loyola Marymount this week.

Men's Tennis

For the second match in a row, the #4 Bruins dropped the doubles point and were forced to play from behind, but for the second match in a row, they came back to win. Two weeks ago it was a comeback versus Fresno St. and last week they had to make the same comeback versus San Diego St. Like the women, the men's team's (5-0) second match of the week was rained out and they too will compete in the National Team Indoors; however, their indoor competition will be be played in Chicago.

Softball

What was supposed to be a five game weekend turned into a four game weekend due to rain as the #4 Bruins opened up their season with three wins and a loss. The Bruins lost their first game of the season 2-1 to Purdue before bouncing back to defeat Indiana 10-2. Katie Schroeder his her first collegiate home run against Purdue then her second against Indiana. The next day, the Bruins played two more games and won both of them. They beat Cal Poly 6-1, then beat #25 San Diego St. 6-2 on an extra innings walk-off grand slam by Kaila Shull. This week the Bruins will travel to Nevada for five games in the UNLV Louisville Slugger Desert Classic, including gamers versus #5 Michigan and #11 Northwestern.

Men's Volleyball

#8 UCLA was in need of a win streak and they finally took a couple steps towards that win streak this week.  It didn't look like this would be the week that the Bruins won a couple games when they lost the first two sets to #5 Stanford on Thursday, but the Bruins fought back to win the final three sets and defeat the Cardinal 34-36, 26-30, 30-21, 30-27, 15-11. On Friday the Bruins completed their perfect week with a four set win over Pacfiic to improve to 6-5 overall and 4-3 in conference play. The Bruins begin a four game road trip this week with a trip to Illinois where they'll play #14 Lewis and Loyola-Chicago.

Women's Basketball

The Bruins had a chance to take fourth place in the conference all alone and make a strong statement to the NCAA Tournament selection committee with a win over USC, but they were unable to make up a 21 halftime deficit and they lost 87-76. UCLA shot only 22% in the first half and despite 20 points from Doreena Campbell, couldn't make a comeback. Now fifth in the Pac 10, UCLA hosts Arizona and Arizona St. this week.

Men's Track and Field

UCLA went to Nebraska for the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational and had a very productive weekend. Boldizsar Kocsor picked up a NCAA qualifying mark with the nation's fourth best weight throw of the year. Marlon Patterson ran a lifetime best in the mile, which gave him a NCAA provisional qualifying mark and Kevin Craddock ran the nation's fifth fastet time this year in the 60m hurdles to qualify for the NCAA's. The Bruins will head to Arizona this week for the Northern Arizona Classic.

Women's Track and Field

With the men in Nebraska, the women were in New York for the New Balance Invitational, where they shined in the long jump. Rhoda Watkins, 2007 NCAA Indoor and Outdoor champion, and Danielle Watson both jumped NCAA qualifying marks. The 4x400m team also picked up a NCAA qualifying time. This week the women will be in Arkansas for the Tyson Invitational.

Women's Golf

Top ranked UCLA will begin their 2009 spring season with the Regional Challenge at Palos Verdes Golf Club.
