Another UCLA duo tabbed Pac-12 beach volleyball pair of the week

Apr 10, 2018

Lily Justine (SO, Chico, Calif.) and Sarah Sponcil (JR, Phoenuz.), UCLA

• The pair extended their winning streak to 10 matches going 6-0 this week and are 26-7 overall.
• Only dropped one set by two points, helping UCLA go 6-0 as well in its first-ever week as the nation's No. 1 team, leading the Bruins to wins over five ranked teams. (No. 4 USC, 3-2;  No. 6 Long Beach State, 5-0; No. 20 Saint Mary's, 5-0; No. 5 Cal Poly, 4-1; No. 13 Stanford, 4-1)
• The victory over the Cardinal was a UCLA-record 25th consecutive dual match win (21 against ranked teams and nine vs. teams in the top 10), surpassing 24 the Bruins had last year.
• Additionally, UCLA ran its overall record to 30-3 on the year, which ties the Bruins' record for most wins in a season (30-6 last year).
• It is the first-career weekly honor for either player and the fourth this season for a Bruin pair. It is the eighth-all-time weekly nod for UCLA since the award's inception in 2016.
