The Pac-12 is called the “Conference of Champions” for a reason.
Ever since the conference expanded to 12 schools in 2011, four of its teams have gone on to win it all, including the Bruins in that inaugural year.
After dropping two consecutive series, the Bruins will take a break from conference play for a midweek contest against a familiar opponent.
UCLA baseball (17-11, 6-6 Pac-12) will host Loyola Marymount (11-18, 4-8 WCC) on Tuesday for the third and final meeting of the year between the two clubs at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
Melissa Ponce spent the day before her 13th birthday in the hospital.
It was Valentine’s Day, just one day before she officially became a teenager, but Melissa was confined by the walls of a hospital room for the fifth consecutive day.
The Bruins landed several new records over the weekend.
UCLA track and field competed at the Rafer Johnson/Jackie Joyner-Kersee Invitational on Thursday and Friday at Drake Stadium.
The Bruins were held to their worst hitting performance in nearly four years in their first game back since dealing with COVID-19 within the program.
However, the offensive struggles didn’t last the remainder of the weekend.
The Bruins continued their string of victories fresh off their elevation to the top ranking in the country.
No. 1 UCLA beach volleyball (19-1, 10-0 Pac-12) swept Arizona State (6-9, 3-5) in its first match and followed with a 4-1 win over No.
