UCLA'S Adam Krikorian Named Co-Coach of the Year

Jan. 17, 2007

Los Alamitos, Calif. - UCLA men's and women's water polo head coach Adam Krikorian earned USA Water Polo Elite Co-Coach of the Year Honors, USA Water Polo announced this week.

In May 2006, Krikorian led the women's water polo team to its second-consecutive NCAA Championship, marking the 12th national title won by Krikorian as both a player and a coach at UCLA.

Last spring, Krikorian guided the UCLA women's water polo team to a 29-4 overall record en route to the NCAA Championship. The Bruins defeated crosstown rival USC, 9-8, on May 14 after having won an NCAA record 40-consecutive games (dating back to 2005). The national championship marked the fifth in program history under Krikorian, who has also led the men's team to three NCAA titles as head coach.

Krikorian guided the men's water polo team to a 17-6 overall record and a third-place finish in the MPSF conference last fall. The Bruins finished the season undefeated at home and posted a 6-2 MPSF record.

In addition to earning the Co-Coach of the Year award, USA Water Polo named Krikorian the Coastal California Zone's Elite Women's Coach of the Year.
