UCLA becomes a College Cup regular
August 21st, 2008 8:45AM

MOST COMMENTED

3. UCLA (20-2-2).
Last year:  The Bruins won their fifth consecutive Pac-10 Championship last season but the postseason brought the disappointment of another Women's College Cup collapse.

The 2-1 loss to USC in the semifinals marked the fifth straight year the Bruins played in the College Cup without returning home with the title.

This year: UCLA, whose coach Jillian Ellis was an assistant coach for the USA at the 2008 Olympics, will be led by a pair of Olympians, American Lauren Cheney (single-season school records for points with 57 and goals with 23) and Canadian Kara Lang.

The third attacking threat for the Bruins is Christina DiMartino.

On the other end of the field, defenders Erin Hardy, Lauren Wilmoth and Lauren Barnes all figure to play big roles.

First Three Weeks
8/26 UC Santa Barbara
8/30 at Portland
9/1 at Portland State
9/7 UC Irvine
