While many of us are celebrating Mother's Day with our loved ones (and a happy Mother's Day to all the mom's of BN), some Bruin Student-Athletes are doing their mother's proud today on the athletic field.
After defeating Eastern Kentucky 4-0 in a first round NCAA Tournament match at the LA Tennis Center, the Men's Tennis team is back in action this afternoon against the University of San Diego. The match begins at 1pm at the LATC, with live stats available after the match begins here. The winner advances to the NCAA Team Championships, starting next weekend in Athens, GA.
The Bruin Track and Field teams are about to start day 2 of the Pac-12 championships in Eugene. UCLA finished day 1 leading a tight men's field (1. UCLA, 45 pts; 2. Oregon, 44 pts; 3. Arizona, 43 pts; 4. Washington, 41 pts.), while on the women's side, Ida Storm led the way with a hammer throw result good enough to earn all-conference honors. The team finished 7th on the scoreboard after the first day. Live scoring for day 2 of the conference championships is available here.
