Anjelica Selden joins the Bruin coaching staff as an undergraduate assistant coach following an illustrious career in Westwood that saw her leave as the school's all-time strikeout leader.
A three-time All-American, Selden finished her UCLA career with 1,441 strikeouts, which ranks eighth in NCAA Division I history. She won 110 games, second on the Bruins' all-time wins list, with a 1.35 earned run average. Selden also ranks first at UCLA in appearances (167), second in complete games (127) and innings pitched (1012.1), tied for third in saves (5) and seventh in shutouts (44).
Selden led the Bruin pitching staff in wins, strikeouts and innings pitched every season. She set a single-season record for strikeouts in her freshman campaign of 2005 with 485 and followed that up with 408 as a sophomore, which ranks second on the list. Selden tossed two no-hitters, both in 2005, as well as 21 one-hitters.
Selden was a first-team NFCA All-American in 2006 and 2008 and a second-team honoree in 2005. She also earned All-Region honors each season (first team in 2006 and `08) and All-Pac-10 accolades all four years (first team in 2005, `06 and `08). In 2005, Selden was named Pacific-10 Conference Freshman of the Year and received All-Tournament honors at the Women's College World Series. She was a 10-time Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week, two-time NFCA National Player of the Week and two-time USA Softball National Player of the Week.
