Four UCLA Players Earn ESPN The Magazine All-District Honors

May 22, 2008

LOS ANGELES - Led by first-team selections Mathieu Dehaine (men's tennis) and Riza Zalameda (women's tennis), UCLA had a total of four athletes named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic At-Large Team on Thursday. Tiffany Joh (women's golf) and Nicolette Teo (women's swimming & diving) were named second-team selections. By being named to the first team, both Dehaine and Zalameda are on the ballot for Academic All-America honors.

Zalameda, who owns a 3.40 cumulative grade point average as an Anthropology major, recently led the women's tennis team to its first NCAA Championship, as the Bruins defeated Cal, 4-0 in the title match on Tuesday in Tulsa, Okla. Zalameda, who was named the Most Outstanding Player of this year's tournament, is one of just six four-time All-Americans in UCLA women's tennis history. She is currently competing in the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships as the No. 8 seed in singles and No. 1 seed in doubles with partner Tracy Lin. Zalameda was also recently named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's Senior Player of the Year, becoming just the second Bruin player in history to earn that distinction.

Dehaine carries a 3.81 GPA as a Business-Econ/Math & Applied Science double-major. He recently helped the Bruins post an impressive 25-2 overall record in 2008, reaching the semifinals at the NCAA Championships. Listed at No. 40 in the current ITA Singles Rankings, Dehaine finished his senior season with a 28-8 overall singles record, including a 21-4 mark in dual-match play, seeing most of his time at the Nos. 2 and 3 positions. He also played No. 2 doubles with partner Holden Seguso, going 18-6 overall.

Teo, an Anthropology major with a 3.58 GPA, ended her career as a Bruin with five All-American honors and capped off her career with the team's Most Valuable Swimmer award for the 2007-08 season. Teo moved up UCLA's all-time swim charts during her senior season and ended her career ranked second in the 100 breast (1:00.58) and third in the 200 breast (2:12.19) all-time in school history. As a three-time Olympian, Teo competed at the 2000 Sydney, 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympics for her native country, Singapore. A standout in the pool and the classroom, Teo earned All-Pac-10 academic acclaim and was on the Director's Honor Roll throughout her career.

Joh, a Communications major with a 3.46 GPA, was listed No. 3 nationally in the most recent rankings issued by Golf Week Magazine. She was named the 2008 Pac-10 Golfer of the Year, leading the team in scoring average (71.8), top 10 finished (9), rounds under par (14) and round under 70 (5). A three-time All-Pac-10 selection and two-time All-American, Joh was named to the 2008 U.S. Curtis Cup Team. She is a seven-time member of the UCLA Director's Honor Roll (3.0 GPA and higher).
