Jan. 26, 2008

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Junior Katie Rulon registered four goals to lead the No. 1 UCLA women's water polo team past No. 8 UC San Diego, 14-5, Saturday afternoon at Michigan's Canham Natatorium. Senior Gabrielle Domanic chipped in with three goals and classmate Jillian Kraus added two goals.

After having cruised past Arizona State by the same margin earlier in the day, the top-ranked Bruins (2-0) had little trouble against UC San Diego (1-2). UCLA led 3-1 after one period and raced to a 7-3 halftime lead.

Freshman Noel Umphrey logged her first collegiate goal. Seniors Kamaile Crowell and Courtney Mathewson and junior Tanya Gandy each recorded one goal.

UC San Diego freshman Janice Aguilar led the Tritons with two goals.
