LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Former UCLA water polo player Steve Doyle, who was a member of the Bruins' first three national championship teams, passed away last week at the age of 52. Doyle was a vigorous supporter of UCLA Water Polo and was one of the founders of the Palos Verdes Water Polo Club.
"The UCLA water polo family not only lost a friend last week, but also a major staple in the Bruins' winning water polo tradition," Bruin Head Coach Adam Krikorian said. "Steve was a fantastic water polo player in his four years here but an even better human being. The thoughts and prayers of the entire water polo community are with his family and friends. Steve will be greatly missed."
Doyle played at UCLA from 1969-1972 and was a member of the Bruins' first three national championship teams in 1969, 1971 and 1972.
