UCLA Women’s Golf Falls to 18th Place After NCAA Championships Round Two

UCLA Women’s Golf Falls to 18th Place After NCAA Championships Round Two

The Bruins will need to move into the top eight today if they want to move to the match play portion of the competition. The UCLA women’s golf team faces an uphill battle today. After the weather caused the second round to be stopped on Saturday and resumed on Sunday, the NCAA has decided to shorten the stroke play portion of the competition to just 54 holes. To make matters worse, UCLA had another bad day yesterday. The Bruins shot a 16-over 308 as a team, which dropped them from 15th to 18th on the leaderboard. Now, the Bruins will have only one day, rather than two, to make up the...

UCLA Softball Advances to Super Regional With 13-1 Win Over Missouri

UCLA Softball Advances to Super Regional With 13-1 Win Over Missouri

The Bruins won the NCAA LA Regional by easily beating Missouri in Game 7 after losing Game 6, but the bizarre strategies of Kelly Inouye-Perez remain a big concern for the Bruins. The biggest knock on UCLA Softball head coach Kelly Inouye-Perez over the past few seasons has been her bizarre strategic decisions. Sometimes, they pay off and, other times like in the WCWS last season, they really blow up. Today’s strategic decisions were some of the strangest. Thankfully, none of them really blew up, but it still doesn’t excuse them. In Game 6 of the LA Regional this afternoon, Inouye-Perez...

No-No! UCLA Softball’s Garcia and Azevedo Combine to Hold Weber State Hitless

No-No! UCLA Softball’s Garcia and Azevedo Combine to Hold Weber State Hitless

The Bruins easily won their opening game in the NCAA Los Angeles Regional. It’s time for the softball postseason! That can only mean one thing: UCLA head coach Kelly Inouye-Perez will over-manage the Bruins. Inouye-Perez was already in mid-postseason form against Arizona last weekend and she was at it again last night. Rachel Garcia had amazing stuff last night. She had faced the minimum of 18 batters through the first six innings last night. At one point, she struck out eight batters in a row over the course of three innings. She struck out the side in the sixth and was just three outs...

The Bruins struggled during the first day of the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships in Fayetteville, Arkansas. After the first round of the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the UCLA woen’s golf team sits in 15th place.

UCLA Women’s Tennis Faces North Carolina in NCAA Quarterfinals

UCLA Women’s Tennis Faces North Carolina in NCAA Quarterfinals

After beating Washington, 4-0, last Friday, UCLA will now face the 2 seed North Carolina Tar Heels. Last year, the NCAA Women’s Tennis Tournament played the Round of 16 two days before the NCAA Quarterfinals. This year, the NCAA introduced hosted Super Regionals for the Round of 16. So, that format change could affect the outcome of this year’s competition. I don’t know if the top eight seeds all advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals last year, but they did this year. The Bruins have their work cut out for them today, however, when they meet the North Carolina Tar Heels, who are 32-1....
