Tim Pierce Selected First-Team All-American By NSCAA

Dec. 12, 2002

UCLA senior forward Tim Pierce (Dana Point, CA/Santa Margarita HS) was selected to the 2002 NSCAA/adidas Men's NCAA Division I All-America First Team. Pierce is UCLA's leading scorer with 12 goals and 31 points.

The All-America honor is the first for Pierce, who was also a first-team NSCAA all-region and All-Pac-10 selection, and the 25th first-team selection all-time for UCLA. It also continues a streak for UCLA, which has had an NSCAA All-American in each of the last 20 years.

The NSCAA/adidas All-America teams are determined through voting by NSCAA member coaches from across the nation. The teams, from youth to NCAA Division I, will be honored at the NSCAA/adidas All-America Luncheon, to be held Saturday, Jan. 18, as part of the 2003 NSCAA Convention in Kansas City, Mo.
