Senior goalkeeper Sami Hill from the UCLA women’s water polo team was named the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Jan. 19-25.

Hill became UCLA’s all-time saves leader over the weekend at the UC Santa Barbara Winter Invitational, making 23 saves in three games to break Nicolle Payne’s record of 746, set from 1995-98. Hill had eight saves and recorded a steal and an assist in a 20-8 UCLA victory against No. 16 UCSB. Against Cal Baptist, she recorded three saves and two assists in two quarters of work in a 20-2 Bruin win to establish the new record with 747. She rested during UCLA's 16-2 win over Sonoma State and then came back against Long Beach State to record 12 saves, an assist and a steal. For the season, Hill has 36 saves (4.26 saves/game), four assists and four steals. In her career, she has made 759 saves, 72 steals and has been credited with 73 assists. The Bruins are 6-0 this season and ranked No. 2 nationally.

This is Hill's first UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and second of her career.
