USD Tournament Cancelled Due to Travel Concerns . . .
The UCLA women's soccer team was originally scheduled to take on No. 9 Clemson on Friday and No. 16 Tennessee on Sunday as part of the USD Tournament. However, due to the events of Sept. 11, both of those teams have elected not to travel to the West Coast. Instead, UCLA will take on USD this Friday at 7:00 p.m. in San Diego.

Bruins Lose Greco With Torn ACL . . .
Bruin forward Lindsay Greco, the leading scorer for the No. 2 UCLA women's soccer team, tore her ACL in practice last Thursday and will miss the remainder of the 2001 season. She started all four of UCLA's games this season, registering a team-best 13 points on six goals and one assist. Just last week she was named to Soccer America's Team of the Week following an impressive weekend at the Orange/Blue Classic in which she registered a hat trick and an assist against Louisville on Sept. 7. She followed that game up with a goal against Syracuse on Sept. 9, giving her nine points in two games. As a freshman last season, Greco ranked fourth on the team in scoring with 20 points (8g, 4a). With UCLA only four games into the 2001 season, she will be applying for a medical redshirt through the Pac-10 Conference.

UCLA Concludes Successful Weekend at Orange/Blue Classic in Illinois . . .
UCLA registered two wins at the Orange/Blue Classic, Sept. 7-9 in Illinois. Led by Bruin sophomore Lindsay Greco's three goals, the Bruins defeated Louisville, 7-0 in the opening game of the Classic on Sept. 7. In that game, UCLA set a school record for shots in a game with 41. UCLA had a little tougher time with Syracuse on Sunday, defeating the Orangewomen, 2-0. Sarah-Gayle Swanson and Greco each had a goal for the Bruins in that game.
