LOS ANGELES - Led by first-team selections Jill Oakes and Iris Mora, the UCLA women's soccer team placed a total of four players on All-Pac-10 teams Thursday. Bristyn Davis was named to the second team and Kendal Billingsley was an honorable mention selection.
Oakes, a junior from West Hills, Calif., has been named All-Pac-10 in each of her three seasons in Westwood. She was a first-team selection as a freshman in 2002 and was named to the second team a year ago. Like Oakes, Mora, a junior from Cancun, Mexico, has also been named All-Pac-10 three years in a row. She was named to the second team in 2002 and to the first-team last season.
Davis, a sophomore from Locust Valley, N.Y., leads the team and ranks second in the Pac-10 in scoring with 29 points (12g, 5a). It is her first All-Pac-10 selection. It is also the first All-Pac-10 selection for Billingsley, a senior from Trabuco Canyon, Calif.
UCLA is the No. 14 seed in the NCAA Women's Soccer Championships, which began today at campus sites across the country. The Bruins begin play tomorrow, hosting Pepperdine at Drake Stadium beginning at 5:00 p.m.
