Oakes, Mora Named to M.A.C. Hermann Trophy Watch List

Aug. 24, 2005

LOS ANGELES - UCLA women's soccer players Jill Oakes and Iris Mora are included in a group of 25 total players in the country to be selected to the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy Watch List, designating the early favorites for national player of the year honors.

Mora, a senior forward from Cancun, Mexico, was also named to the Watch List in 2004. It is the first such honor for Oakes, a senior defender from West Hills, Calif.

UCLA has never had a player win the award. Other Bruins recently named to the Watch List include: Nandi Pryce (2003), Mary-Frances Monroe (2001) and Stephanie Rigamat (2001).

UCLA kicks off the 2005 season this Friday hosting Long Beach State at 7:00 p.m.
