July 6, 2010

BREA, Calif. - Juniors Megan Burmeister, Kelly Easterday and Katie Estrada, sophomore KK Clark and freshman Leah Trella have been named All-Academic honorees, as announced this week by the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC).

Easterday has been named an ACWPC All-Academic honoree for the third time in her career. Estrada has secured the academic honor for the second consecutive season. Burmeister, Clark and Trella have been named All-Academic selections for the first time.

Easterday and Estrada highlight UCLA's five academic honorees as "superior" selections. Burmeister, Clark and Trella have been honored as "excellent" academic selections.

Among UCLA's most prolific scorers and talented defenders, Easterday finished her junior campaign with 23 goals, the fourth-highest total on the team. She scored at least one goal in 17 of the team's 30 contests.

Estrada finished with five goals, including two in an NCAA Tournament victory against Marist. Burmeister added 16 goals, totaling two goals in two matches (versus Cal State Northridge and Arizona State).

Clark finished third on the team with 31 goals, earning All-NCAA Tournament Team honors after collecting eight goals in three tournament matches (including four versus Marist on May 15).

Trella collected 14 goals as a freshman, registering at least four goals in each of four matches (including two three goals games - versus UC San Diego and against Sonoma State).

The ACWPC selects three All-Academic teams each season - outstanding (3.71 - 4.00 GPA), superior (3.41 - 3.70 GPA) and excellent (3.20 - 3.40 GPA).

UCLA closed its 2010 season with a 22-8 overall record after having won the MPSF Tournament title.
