UCLA Softball Team to Visit the White House

Nov. 14, 2003

The NCAA Champion UCLA softball team will be honored at the White House by President George W. Bush and members of the White House staff on Monday afternoon, November 17.

The ceremony is part of the White House's 2003 Spring Sports Championship Day. The Bruins were invited along with Rice (baseball), Illinois (men's tennis), Stanford (women's tennis), Virginia (men's lacrosse), Princeton (women's lacrosse), Clemson (men's golf) and USC (women's golf).

UCLA won its record ninth NCAA Championship on May 26, 2003 with a 1-0 extra-inning victory over defending Champion California. Junior Keira Goerl pitched a nine inning no-hitter, the first ever in the NCAA Softball Championship game, for her school-record 40th victory of the year. UCLA advanced to the title game in dramatic fashion, losing its first game of the women's College World Series before winning elimination games over Louisiana-Lafayette, Washington, and two semifinal wins over Texas. Goerl was named the Most Outstanding Player of the WCWS, while Honda-Broderick Cup winner Natasha Watley and senior Tairia Mims were also named to the All-Tournament Team.
