This week we have several sports competing in NCAA tournaments, and, in case you missed it, our gymnastics teams was honored at a Dodger game over the weekend.
UCLA Men’s Golf
Men’s golf is still in fourth place at the NCAA regionals in Bryan, Texas. On Tuesday, they shot even-par for the second time with 288 strokes at the Traditions Club, and they currently sit behind host Texas A&M (-18, 558), Clemson (-17, 559) and Baylor (-6, 570), but are three ahead of fifth-place Ole Miss (+3, 579) and 11 strokes ahead of sixth-place South Carolina. The top five teams will advance to the NCAA Championships at Karsten Creek Golf Club after today’s play.
The baseball team played their final midweek game of the season last night, resuming a suspended game against Cal State Northridge as well as a regularly scheduled game. In the resumed game, UCLA lost 4-3 in thirteen innings, but came back strong in game two. The Bruins routed the Matadors 15-2, finishing the game with 15 runs on 14 hits with no errors, while CSUN (25-27) scored two runs on eight hits with two errors.
UCLA Men’s Tennis
Men’s tennis will continue their hunt for #117 this weekend as they head to the Sweet 16 for the 42nd consecutive year. The Bruins will take on 15 seeded Michigan, whom the Bruins have beaten in every match they’ve faced them.
UCLA Women’s Tennis
Women’s Tennis is also heading to the NCAA’s this weekend in Winston-Salem, and will face fifth seeded and No. 6-ranked Ole Miss. Since 1999 (when the modern format-era began), the Bruins are advancing to the quarterfinals for the 17th time. To get this far, UCLA shut out both Fresno State and Baylor in the Los Angeles Regional.
ICYMI, the gymnastics team was recognized for winning UCLA’s championship #116 last weekend at Dodger Stadium. Felicia Hano threw out the first pitch in a most dramatic fashion:
A dream come true! Way to go @fish_hano! And thank you @Dodgers! #GoBruins | #Dodgers pic.twitter.com/pLuUm7cSxR— UCLA Gymnastics (@uclagymnastics) May 12, 2018
And that’s What’s Bruin this Wednesday morning.
