Sixth-Ranked Bruins Record First-Ever Victory Over Loyola Marymount

March 16, 2013

LOS ANGELES - Freshmen Rachel Inouye and Maddy Klineman posted the first-ever match victory for the UCLA sand volleyball program and that got the ball rolling, as the sixth-ranked Bruins won four straight and defeated Loyola Marymount 4-1 on Saturday at Merle Norman Court. UCLA also fell to #3 USC 5-0.

Inouye and Klineman came back from one set down to LMU's #5 doubles team to take the second in extra points 23-21 before running away with the third 15-10. The Bruins and the Lions were tied through one flight of action, but UCLA swept all three courts in the second session to take the match 4-1.

The #1 doubles team of juniors Meg Norton and Kelly Reeves posted a 21-10, 21-14 victory, #2 doubles of sophomore Zoë Nightingale and freshman Becca Strehlow won by matching 21-15 scores and #3 doubles of senior Bojana Todorovic and sophomore Megan Moenoa recorded a 21-13, 23-21 triumph.

In the Bruins' second contest of the afternoon, they lost to the host Trojans, with all five matches going straight sets.

The Bruins take part in a bracket-style tournament at Merle Norman Court on Sunday. The single-elimination tournament will begin at 9 a.m., with the UCLA #1 team taking on the LMU #5 squad and the UCLA #2 facing the LMU #3. At 10 a.m., the UCLA #3 plays the LMU #4 and the UCLA #5 takes on the USC #2. Rounding out the first round of play will be the UCLA #4 against the USC #3 at 11 a.m.
