UCLA Women's Water Polo Names Molly Cahill Assistant Coach

June 29, 2009

LOS ANGELES - Molly Cahill, a four-year women's water polo letterwinner (2004-07), has been named assistant women's water polo coach at UCLA, as announced Monday by head coach Brandon Brooks.

Cahill has helped lead UCLA to four NCAA women's water polo titles - three as a student-athlete (2005-07) and one as undergraduate assistant coach in 2008.

"Our program is very proud to bring Molly Cahill back as an assistant coach," Brooks said. "Her knowledge, experience and passion for the game will make her a terrific addition to UCLA women's water polo. She is a hard worker who exemplifies the Bruin spirit that has helped make our program successful."

In four seasons as a UCLA student-athlete, Cahill registered 95 goals on 260 attempts and played in all 123 matches. She earned MPSF All-Academic Team honors her final three seasons (2005-07). Cahill was recognized as an Academic All-America "excellent" selection in 2005.

Serving as an undergraduate assistant coach in 2008, Cahill helped guide the Bruins to a perfect 33-0 record and the team's fourth consecutive NCAA title.

A senior in 2007, Cahill logged 26 goals on 52 attempts, collecting 12 steals and 11 assists. She scored 14 goals on 35 attempts her junior season (2006) and added 17 goals on 38 attempts as a sophomore (2005). The native of Santa Barbara, Calif., registered a career-best 38 goals on 135 attempts as a freshman (2004) before earning MPSF All-Freshman Team honors that spring.

Cahill graduated from UCLA in 2008 with a degree in history.
