Bruins Well Represented on All-Pacific Region and All-Pac-10 Teams

May 14, 2008

Six Bruins were named to both the All-Pacific-10 and All-Pacific Region teams on Wednesday, while three more players were also honored by the Pac-10.

Senior Anjelica Selden was named first team All-Pac-10 for the third time in her career and first team All-Pacific Region for the second time. Joining Selden on the All-Pacific Region first team were sophomore Megan Langenfeld and freshman GiOnna DiSalvatore. Three Bruins, senior Krista Colburn, junior Amanda Kamekona and freshman Samantha Camuso were honored on the All-Pacific Region second team.

The six all-region selections for the Bruins are the most since 1999 when six were named. Selden's honor was the fourth time she has been named all-region (2 first team, 2 second team), while Colburn was named all-region for the second straight year.

Selden was one of two Bruins to garner first team All-Pac-10 accolades, joined on the team by Kamekona. Receiving second team All-Pac-10 nods were Camuso, Colburn, DiSalvatore and Langenfeld, while freshmen Donna Kerr and Katie Schroeder were each named All-Pac-10 honorable mention.

It was Selden's fourth all-conference nod, Colburn's third and Langenfeld's second.

The young Bruin squad also earned five All-Freshman team awards from the Pac-10, with Camuso, DiSalvatore, Kerr, Schroeder and Monica Harrison winning the honors.

The Bruins, the second overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, open up Regional play on Friday against Cal State Fullerton at Easton Stadium. The game will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of Friday's first game at 2:30 p.m. between Nevada and Purdue. Tickets can be purchased in advance at (310) UCLA-WIN or at the Easton Stadium ticket booth on game day.
