Two Bruin Soccer Players Earn Pre-Season All-America Honors

Aug. 26, 2003

UCLA seniors Nandi Pryce (Casselberry, FL/Lake Howell HS) and Adolfo Gregorio (Hilmar, CA/Hilmar HS) have been selected to Soccer America's pre-season All-America teams.

Pryce, a first-team NSCAA/adidas All-American in 2002 and a two-time All-Pac-10 selection, is one of the top defenders in the nation. As a junior last season she was one of 15 finalists for the Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy, awarded to the top player in NCAA soccer. She also helped the Bruin defense rank second in the Pac-10 in goals allowed (13), goals against average (0.57) and shutouts (12). Most recently, she helped the Under-21 U.S. National Team capture its fifth straight Nordic Cup title.

Gregorio is a three-time All-Pac-10 selection and a third-team NSCAA All-Far West honoree and College Soccer News second-team All-American in 2002. He was also named to the College Cup All-Tournament team after his stellar play in the semifinals (scored the game-winning goal) and finals. Last season, he totaled 24 points on nine goals, including four game-winners, and six assists. Gregorio is a member of the U.S. Under-23 National Team.
