[COLLEGE WOMEN]Amanda Cromwell, who led UCLA to its first national title in her first season with the Bruins, has agreed to a multi-year contract extension. She became the first UCLA coach ever to be honored as Soccer America's Women's Coach of the Year after an NCAA Tournament run that included wins over Pac-12 rival Stanford and ACC powers North Carolina, Virginia and Florida State, all No. 1 regional seeds.

With wins over Stanford and Carolina, UCLA, defeated two of the last three national champions. It finished the year with a record of 22-1-3, winning the Pac-12 and going unbeaten in their last 21 games.

Cromwell was in just her first season in Westwood, having been hired late in the spring after B.J. Snow took the first full-time job as U.S. under-17 women's national team coach.

“We are obviously very pleased to see what Amanda has been able to accomplish here at UCLA in such a short amount of time," said UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero.  "Seeing firsthand the resolve her team displayed in spite of the uncharacteristically rainy and freezing weather during that championship game in North Carolina is a testament to a group of focused players, as well as her leadership.  We are very pleased to ensure that same leadership will be on full display here in Westwood for years to come."

UCLA tied the school record for wins in a season and led the nation with a goals-against average of 0.296. The Bruins trailed for only 47 of the 2,311 minutes they played in 2013. U.S. U-20 goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland set a school record with 15 shutouts. Junior defender Abby Dahlkemper was one of three finalists for the MAC Hermann Trophy.

With 10 starters returning, UCLA will begin the 2014 season as the favorite
