Milburn Named Pac-10 Player of the Year

Nov. 7, 2000

Los Angeles -- UCLA forward Tracey Milburn was named Pac-10 Player of the Year on Tuesday, following an outstanding regular season in which she helped the Bruins earn their fourth consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament.

Milburn, a senior from Moorpark, is only the second UCLA player ever to earn Pac-10 Player of the Year honors, as Traci Arkenberg won it back in 1997. Milburn is a three-time first-team All-Pac-10 selection and started all 19 games for UCLA this season. She leads the team in scoring with 29 points (12g, 5a), which is also good enough for sixth in the Pac-10. She is also tied for the team lead (w/Sarah-Gayle Swanson) in goals with 12. She was named Pac-10 Player of the Week on Oct. 16 after registering eight points in victories over Oregon and Oregon State. In only three seasons in Westwood, Milburn ranks second at UCLA in career points with 78. She transferred from Pepperdine following her freshman season. Heading into the season, Milburn was a 2000 College Soccer Online preseason All-American.

In addition to Milburn's selection to the first-team, UCLA placed four other players on all-conference teams Tuesday. Defenders Karissa Hampton and Krista Boling also earned first-team All-Pac-10 honors, while midfielder Breana Boling was a second-team selection.

Bruin goalkeeper CiCi Peterson, who has not given up more than one goal in any game this season and has allowed just seven goals in UCLA's 19 games, was an honorable mention selection.

The Bruins open NCAA Tournament play this Saturday when they take on the winner between USC and San Diego at 1:00 p.m. at UCLA's Drake Stadium.
