With several UCLA teams doing well in their respective sports this past year, topped off with Women’s Soccer and Women’s Tennis claiming National Championships #110 and #111, who will be the next UCLA team to win a championship in the Quest For 112? The idea was sparked when David Berg of UCLA Baseball tweeted out that he was excited to be at UCLA after news came out that he would return for his senior season. He ended the tweet with the hashtag, #questfor112.
Brilliant. The mentality of a Bruin. His goal is to win another National Championship. He is obviously in the zone with what he needs to do. This is why we ask, which Bruin team will be the next National Champions? But before you choose, here is some information on the selections…
Baseball – National Champions in 2013. Missed the playoffs in 2014. Rebuilding for 2015 might include the #1 pick in the MLB Draft, Brady Aiken.
Basketball (Men’s) – 1st year coach Steve Alford won the Pac-12 Tournament Championship, took the Bruins to Sweet Sixteen (1st since 2008) and has the #7 recruiting class in the nation.
Football – Head coach Jim Mora is getting national recognition in his third year with the Bruins. The Bruins will be a very good football team this year, but are they National Championship good? (Note: football would not count toward #112, but it would still be good to see them win a championship!)
Golf (Women’s) – The Bruins were at the top of the golf world behind freshman Allison Lee last year, but came up short in the NCAA Tournament. Will they be a the team to beat in 2015?
Softball – Another Bruin team that was at the top of their game all season, made it to the College World Series Super Regionals. The Bruins have pitcher/slugger Ally Carda returning for her senior season and a championship would top off a great college career.
Tennis (Women’s) – Robin Anderson and Kyle Phillips were instrumental in the Bruins capturing their second national championship and UCLA’s 112th. Both are set to return to the Bruins for their title defense in 2015.
Soccer (Women’s) – Amanda Cromwell won a championship in her first year as the Bruin’s head coach. It probably will not be her last.
Water Polo (Women’s) – The Bruins lead at halftime in the championship game against Stanford. The Cardinal won. The Bruins will not forget that in 2015.
