The duo earned first-team NSCAA Far West All-Region and first-team All-Pac-10 honors this season and were semifinalists for the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy. Both players helped the Pac-10 champion Bruins accumulate 14 shutouts on the year, the second-highest total in school history. UCLA allowed just 14 goals, ranked fourth-best in school history. On the offensive front, Ianni scored two goals and two assists for six points, while Wynne had one goal and three assists for five points.
