Sophomore forward Danesha Adams (Shaker Heights, OH/Shaker Heights HS) of the UCLA Women's Soccer Team was selected as the UCLA/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week (Nov. 21-27).
Adams set an NCAA record with four goals in UCLA's 5-0 NCAA Quarterfinal victory over Virginia on Friday. She became just the second player in UCLA history to register four goals in a match (Traci Arkenberg accomplished the feat in back in 1996). Adams also moved into second place all-time at UCLA in career NCAA scoring and now has 18 postseason points (8goals, 2assists). She leads the team in scoring this season with 44 points (20g, 4a). UCLA set the single-season record for victories on Friday with its 21st of the year.
This is Adams' second UCLA/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and fourth of her career.
