UCLA's Adam Krikorian Earns Coaching Honor from USA Water Polo

Feb. 8, 2008

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. - UCLA women's water polo head coach Adam Krikorian captured USA Water Polo Elite Coach of the Year Honors for the Coastal California Zone (CCA), USA Water Polo announced at its year-end banquet.

In May 2007, Krikorian led the women's water polo team to its third-consecutive NCAA Championship, marking the 13th national title won by Krikorian as both a player and a coach at UCLA. The 2007 women's water polo title marked UCLA's 100th NCAA team championship.

Last spring, Krikorian helped lead the Bruins to a 28-2 overall record and an 11-1 MPSF mark. UCLA defeated Stanford, 5-4, in the NCAA Championship on May 13, 2007, to win the program's ninth national championship - the six national title in women's water polo under Krikorian's tutelage.

Krikorian earned the same honor in January 2007, after having led the 2006 women's water polo team to the NCAA Championship with a win over crosstown rival USC.

This spring, UCLA's women's water polo team was selected the preseason favorite to win the 2008 MPSF title. In addition, UCLA currently owns the No. 1 seed entering this weekend's competition at the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif.
