Four Bruins Selected To NSCAA/adidas Far West All-Region Soccer Team

Dec. 8, 2005

Four Bruins have been selected to the 2005 NSCAA/adidas Far West All-Region team, including first-team honorees Patrick Ianni (Lodi, Calif.) and Marvell Wynne (Poway, Calif.), who were two of the three defenders honored. Sophomore forward Kamani Hill (Berkeley, Calif.) received second-team acclaim, while junior goalkeeper Eric Reed (Mission Viejo, Calif.) was named to the third team.

All four Bruins earned first-team All-Pac-10 acclaim this season, and both Ianni and Wynne were semifinalists for the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy. The defensive duo helped the Pac-10 champion Bruins accumulate 14 shutouts on the year, the second-highest total in school history. UCLA allowed just 14 goals, ranked fourth-best in school history. Offensively, Ianni recorded career-bests with two goals and two assists for six points. Wynne, the only underclassman named to the first team, had one goal and three assists for five points. Hill led the Bruins in all scoring categories with seven goals, eight assists, four game-winning goals and 22 points. Reed posted a 0.60 goals against average with 12 shutouts, numbers that put him third on UCLA's single-season shutout list and sixth on the single-season goals against average chart.

UCLA has had at least two All-Region players in each of the last 37 years and four or more players 18 times.
