UCLA Wins Four in Palm Springs, Georgia Game Rained Out
UCLA extended its season-opening winning streak to 13 games last weekend at the Palm Springs Classic at the Big League Dreams complex in Cathedral City, CA. The Bruins opened play on Friday afternoon with a 9-0 five-inning victory over Baylor. The Bruins connected for three home runs in the game as Lisa Dodd struck out four to get the one-hit shutout victory. The Bruins then moved from the Wrigley Field replica to the Yankee Stadium replica and started the scheduled game against No. 12 Tennessee. The Bruins got on the board early against UT starter Stacey Jennings, scoring on the second lead-off home run of the season by Caitlin Benyi. UCLA scored two unearned runs in the bottom of the third inning to account for the 3-0 final score.

Saturday's games featured a Big Ten schedule for the Bruins, as UCLA defeated Northwestern 5-1 and Penn State 5-2. In the day's opener, Keira Goerl pitched a two-hitter, allowing one unearned run while striking out seven. The Bruins connected on four home runs in the game, hit by Benyi, Andrea Duran, Claire Sua and freshman Ashley Herrera. In the nightcap, Michelle Turner started her first game in the circle since last May, getting the win while striking out six batters. Goerl earned the first save of her career, coming in and striking out five of the seven batters she faced in the game.

March 28 Game with U.S. Olympic Team is SOLD OUT
UCLA's March 28 game between against the 2004 U.S. Olympic Team at Easton Stadium is officially sold out. The 2004 U.S. Olympic Team features five former Bruins, including Lisa Fernandez, Tairia (Mims) Flowers, Amanda Freed, Stacey Nuveman and Natasha Watley.

Who Was Stacy Winsberg?
Stacy Winsberg, who served as strength and conditioning coach for the U.S. Women's Softball National Team at the 1999 Pan American Games and the 2000 Olympics, passed away on the morning of Dec. 12, 2001, from a cerebral blood clot. She had been battling lung cancer for several months.

A four-year letterwinner at UCLA, Winsberg played collegiate softball at UCLA and was a member of three national championship teams (1982, 1984, 1985). She was also a two-time ASA All-American (1984, 1985) and competed internationally in the Tri-National Tournament (China) and Japan Cup in 1985.
