New York, NY - Three Bruins earned Soccer Buzz All-West honors for the 1999 season, it was announced earlier this week.
Junior forward Tracey Milburn earned second-team honors after helping lead the UCLA women's soccer team to a 15-5-1 record and a NCAA third round tournament appearance. Milburn, a first-team All-Pac-10 selection, scored 24 points this season, which ranked second on the team and eighth in the Pac-10.
Senior defender Skylar Little received third team acclaim. Little, the team's captain, helped the Bruin defense post nine shutouts this season. Last year, she earned first team honors after leading the Bruins to a school record 11 shutouts.
Rounding out the list of accolades, freshman forward Jessica Winton was named to the All-West-Freshman team. The Pac-10 Co-Freshman of the Year was UCLA's leading-scorer with 29 points and 12 goals. She ended the '99 season ranking second in the Pac-10 in goals scored and fourth in scoring.
