Non-Revenue Sports Bruin Review and Calendar


Two weeks ago, women's tennis jumped up the rankings, last week they proved why (Photo Credit: Official Site)


It wasn't a poor week, but it wasn't the type of week the #3 Bruins were looking for. The week began with a 9-6 win over Cal St. Fullerton at Easton Stadium, the Bruins' ninth consecutive win. UCLA then hit the road for Cathedral City Classic and the tournament began with a 4-3 defeat of Colorado St. That was followed by a four home run outburst to take down #13 Texas, 9-1. They hit three more homers against Baylor, but it wasn't enough as the Bears took down the blue and gold, 7-5. A five run eighth inning was what it took to beat #22 Northwestern, 10-5, but the weekend ended on a sour note as the Bruins were handily beaten by #16 Ohio St., 7-0. This week, it will be the San Diego Classic for UCLA.

Women's Gymnastics

#3 UCLA took part in a tri-meet at Cal St. Fullerton and defeated both the Titans and Utah St., which was expected, but the highlight came from Vanessa Zamarippa, who scored her fourth-career perfect 10 on the vault. The sophomore's vault helped the team score season highs on the event, something they also did on the beam. The Bruins visit #5 Georgia on Saturday.

Women's Water Polo

The #3 Bruins took part in the UC Irvine Invitational and came away with a solid 3-1 showing. The tournament began with a 9-3 win over #14 UC Santa Barbara behind three KK Clark goals and the Bruins backed that up with a tough 7-5 win over #5 Michigan. UCLA was easily defeated by top-ranked Stanford, 10-4, but finished off the week with a 7-6 win over #4 Cal. This was no ordinary one-goal win, though. This was an epic, EIGHT OVERTIME match. A great win for the Bruins. A trip to #6 Hawaii looms.

Men's Volleyball

What happened to the #3 Bruins? Fresh off of a 4-1 road trip, then a win over the nation's stop ranked team, UCLA dropped a pair of matches in straight sets last week. First, #14 UC San Diego easily handled the Bruins, then #9 Long Beach St. made quick work of the Bruins in another home match. #15 Lewis and #11 UC Irvine will be in Pauley Pavilion this week as UCLA tries to straighten things out.

Women's Tennis

UCLA jumped up eight spots in the national rankings two weeks ago, from #12 to #4 and followed it up with wins over two lowly opponents. Last week, it was time to prove their worth as a top-five team and prove it they did. The first match of the week went in UCLA's favor as they smacked #11 Stanford around, 6-1, to hand the Cardinal their first loss of the year. The Bruins then avenged their only loss of the season by coming from 3-1 down to beat #3 Cal, 4-3. The Bruins now sit at 11-1 with a visit to #11 USC and Oregon this week.

Men's Tennis

A match against Stanford got rained out, but #7 UCLA took care of #15 Cal, 4-3. The Bruins hopped out to a 4-2 lead and were the winners by then, but the finished the final two matches, both of which went to the Bears. #5 USC visits Westwood on Wednesday.

Men's Track and Field

The best indoor track and field team in the MPSF? That would be your UCLA Bruins. The team took home the indoor crown for the second consecutive year behind Kevin Craddock and Jonathan Clark's individual wins.

Women's Track and Field

A sixth place finish was the best the Bruins could muster at the MPSF Indoor Championships.

Women's Basketball

Markel Walker paced the Bruins with 19 points to kick off their final road weekend as they took down Oregon St., 74-53, in a game that was never really close. How do you back that up? How about coming back from a 16-point halftime deficit to win in front of a national TV audience? The Bruins did just that, beating Oregon, 91-75, thanks to 31 points and 20 rebounds from Jasmine Dixon. UCLA closes out the regular season with the Arizona schools at Pauley Pavilion this weekend.

Women's Swimming and Diving

The Bruins had a strong Pac-10 Championships, finishing fifth as a team. Karina Silva was the class of the Bruins in the diving competition, setting a school, Pac-10 and championship meet record on tower.
