UCLA Women's Soccer Recognized on Tonight Show with Jay Leno
Members of the NCAA champion UCLA Women's Soccer team were recognized on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday. The show, which features guests Kevin Hart, Brooklyn Decker and Chris Young, airs at 11:35 pm PT on NBC.
The Bruins were part of Leno's monologue at the top of the show, being recognized in the audience for winning their first-ever NCAA championship and 110th in UCLA's history. The team also had an opportunity to take a photo with Leno on the set and take a look inside the control room backstage.
"Going to the Jay Leno show was such a cool experience," said junior defender Caprice Dydasco. "We were able to meet him and go backstage to see the behind-the-scenes jobs. It was amazing to see how much work actually goes into an hour show. The show itself was really fun, and it was very nice of them to invite us and recognize us for winning a national championship."
"Today was so much fun. It was really nice to get together with the coaches and some of my teammates again and have a great time laughing at the Jay Leno show," senior goalkeeper Alana Munger said. "Ever since we got back from North Carolina, everyone has been so nice and congratulating us on winning. Going to this show was an opportunity for us to have some fun while celebrating the national championship, and I am so grateful for the support and appreciation everyone has shown us."
