Dec. 1, 1999

WESTWOOD, Calif. - Six UCLA men's water polo team members were named to the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation All-Conference team as voted by the league's head coaches, MPSF executive director Al Beaird announced Wednesday.

Senior Matt Armato and junior Sean Kern were named to the all-conference first team. Armato, the MPSF conference tournament Most Valuable Player, also earned All-MPSF honors as a junior in 1997. He currently ranks third on the team with 40 points, including a school record six two-pointers. Kern, the team's leading scorer with 47 points, earned second and third-team honors respectively the last two seasons.

Junior Adam Wright earned a second-team selection this year, and also garnered All-MPSF honors in his first two years. Wright is second in team scoring with career-high 45 points. Named to the third team was junior Brian Brown who has recorded 31 points and a team-high 41 steals.

Rounding out Bruin honorees are juniors Andy Bailey and Blake Wellen, both named honorable mention members. Defensive standouts Bailey and Wellen are tied for second in team steals with 32, while scoring 15 and eight points respectively.

Stanford senior Brian Heifferon was named the MPSF Player of the Year, while Pacific's Courtney Porter earned Coach of the Year honors.
