Cahill has guided the Bruins to the NCAA Tournament in each of her eight years associated with the program. Likewise, she has lifted UCLA to the NCAA Championship in four of her six seasons - three as a student-athlete (2005-07) and one as undergraduate assistant coach in 2008.
In 2011, Cahill worked alongside head coach Brandon Brooks for the second consecutive year. The Bruins went 26-7, finishing third at the NCAA Tournament after posting a second-place finish at the MPSF Tournament.
In 2010, Cahill helped a young team, devoid of any seniors on the roster, improve over the course of the season and win the MPSF Tournament title as the conference's fifth-seeded team. The Bruins defeated No. 4-seed Hawai'i and No. 1-seed Stanford before taking down No. 2-seed USC in the tournament's title match at UCLA's Spieker Aquatics Center.
Serving as an undergraduate assistant coach in 2008, Cahill helped guide the Bruins to their fourth consecutive NCAA title - a streak with which she helped start during her sophomore season in 2005. UCLA posted a perfect 33-0 record that season, duplicating a feat the program had accomplished in 2005.
In four seasons as a UCLA student-athlete, Cahill registered 95 goals on 260 attempts and played in all 123 matches. She earned MPSF All-Academic Team honors her final three seasons (2005-07). Cahill was recognized as an ACWPC All-Academic "excellent" selection in 2005.
A senior in 2007, Cahill logged 26 goals on 52 attempts, collecting 12 steals and 11 assists. She scored 14 goals on 35 attempts her junior season (2006) and added 17 goals on 38 attempts as a sophomore (2005). The native of Santa Barbara, Calif., registered a career-best 38 goals on 135 attempts as a freshman (2004) before earning MPSF All-Freshman Team honors that spring.
Cahill, 26, graduated from UCLA in 2008 with a degree in history.
