Last month, NCAA team title number 109 eluded us when we were razor-edged out by Alabama and Stanford in gymnastics after putting up one of the highest scores at the NCAAs in school history.
But because this is UCLA, and not some SEC school, our Bruins have another shot at glorifying us even further, with our Women’s Water Polo team having earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament after winning the MPSF tournament on April 29.
The NCAA tourney includes eight teams, and the Bruins’ drew seventh-seeded Iona in their first-round match-up, which will begin Friday, May 11 at noon. The festivities will take place at San Diego State.
We aren’t sure just how good this team is, because we wouldn’t know if a good team bit us in our ass. However, UCLA’s Women’s Water Polo has won 11 national titles, seven of them being NCAA championships. In fact, when the Bruins have gone to the NCAA tournament, they emerge as champions 70 percent of the time. That’s a pretty damn good record, if you ask me.
Hopefully, the squad comes out victorious and can get past Iona next Friday.
