Non-Revenue Conference Tourney Roundup: Mixed Results for Westwood

Will we see this scene again this year? Or will Westwood have to wait another year for a men's NCAA title? - UCLA Athletics

This past week saw four of UCLA's spring non-revenue squads in action in conference tournament action, all with the goal of making it on to NCAA action, in the hope that one of the four will break Westwood's title droughts (no national titles since 2011, no men's titles since 2008). It's time to recap how those teams fared.

Over the past week, four Bruin non-revenue teams were in action in conference tournament action, all hoping to bring conference titles back to Westwood and set themselves up for prime position for a deep NCAA tournament run, and hopefully, snap UCLA's current NCAA title drought (no national titles since 2011, no men's titles since 2008 . . . you're doing a heckuva job there Chianti Dan). It was a rather mixed bag, with some elimination, some near-eliminations, but one dominating team performance and an outstanding individual performance. With that, let's take a look at how each squad fared.

So, all-in-all, a mixed bag with Coach Speraw's first season coming to an earlier-than-hoped conclusion, and women's water polo hoping for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. But on the court, both tennis teams look strong and the men's tennis team look to be the odds-on favorite for UCLA's first NCAA title since Rachael Kidder led the women's volleyball team to the title in 2011 and the first men's NCAA title since Kevin Chappell led the men's golf team to the title in 2008. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
