UCLA HEAD COACH Sue Enquist
"It was a great day to be a Bruin. The clutch hitting and Tairia Mims delivering like she has was just terrific for us. It was a real emotional lift. Keira (Goerl) did a great job. She got herself in a pinch a couple of times and I felt like she regrouped within the at bat. I think that was critical. We picked it up and threw it well today. We had better defense. Overall, it was just a great day. Tomorrow we have to be mentally disciplined to think about one ballgame. We can't think about two, we just have to take it one game at a time."
On the team's defense:
"It was the emphasis on the day off. We just wanted to get back to the way of playing that we're capable of."
WASHINGTON HEAD COACH TERESA WILSON
"It was a good game. Identical scores for UCLA and Arizona and you can't ask anymore from your kids. They played a good game. They worked hard and we had our chances."
On the season:
"This season started great and ended great. These kids really came together and they played hard in the postseason. They played a good postseason and I hope that it carries over into next year. The postseason was definitely a highlight. We went 31-2 in the tournament portion of the season and that's a pretty good tournament part of the year. We had our struggles during the Pac-10 but it was definitely a highlight coming together for regionals and the kids played good ball here."
