Bruin Briefs: A Roundup of UCLA Sports


Go Joe Bruin takes a look into the world of UCLA sports as several Bruin teams are on the path to a National Championship.

If you are as big of a UCLA fan as I am, you likely wonder how we are doing in sports all the time.

Well, I have already done all the work to give you the latest on how the UCLA Bruins are doing so far:

Baseball (22-22 overall, 10-11 conference)

The Bruins defeated the Anteaters to tie the series against Irvine 1-1. UCLA will have an opportunity to win the series at Jackie Robinson Stadium today at 1:00 p.m. PT.  By the way, there will be yoga after the game.

Beach Volleyball (#4, 22-7 overall)

The Bruins fell to the #1 Florida State Seminoles 3-1 on May 8.  FSU will play #2 USC in the NCAA Championship game.

On May 7, Junior Bronte Law was a co-medalist at the NCAA Regionals, while the team finished third to advance to the NCAA Championships.  The Bruins will see action again on May 20, marking their 16th-straight appearance to the Championships.


UCLA finished 5th at the NCAA Championships on April 16th. The team also finished the season with a balance beam title by Danusia Francis and a Pac-12 team title. The Bruins made national headlines this year when Sophina DeJesus added Hip Hop moves to her routine, leading to an appearance on the Ellen Show.
