LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Three Bruins have been named to the U.S. Olympic Women's Water Polo team, announced by US Olympic coach Guy Baker. Robin Beauregard, Nicolle Payne and Coralie Simmons will be representing the United States in Sydney.

Beauregard (Hungtinton Beach, Calif./Marina) played for UCLA in 1998 but redshirted the last two seasons to train with the National Team. During her freshman year, she earned second team All-American honors and was the fourth leading scorer with 48 goals. She was named first team All-MPSF as well as first team All-National Collegiate Championship Tournament.

Payne (Cerritos, Calif./Gahr) was a standout goalie during her four years at UCLA (1995-1998). She was the 1996 National Player of the Year and a three-time first team All-American. She holds the career and single season save records at UCLA and led the Bruins to three National Championships (1996-98).

Simmons (Hemet, Calif./Hemet) is a two-time National Player of the Year (1997-98) for the Bruins and redshirted the last two years to train with the National Team.
