UCLA Athletics

PAC-12 BEACH VOLLEYBALL PAIR OF THE WEEK: 
Savvy Simo (JR/Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.)/Lea Monkhouse (SO/Mississauga, Ontario, Canada), UCLA

• Savvy Simo and Lea Monkhouse helped UCLA go 5-1 on the week as the Bruins split a pair of duals with #2 USC. Other team wins came against #13 Loyola Marymount, #12 California, #19 Stanford and Washington.
• The pair was the only pair between the two teams to go undefeated at 6-0 on the week while not dropping a set and allowing just one opponent in only one set to score more than 16 points.
• The duo is 22-5 on the year and has won nine-consecutive matches, all in straight sets, with eight coming against ranked teams and five against teams in the top 10.
• It is the first-career honor for the pair and the second-straight UCLA duo to earn the weekly nod. It is also the 11th weekly honor for the Bruins all-time.

ALSO NOMINATED: Natalie Anselmo/Madison Rigdon, ARIZ; Kate Baldwin/Samantha Plaster, ASU; Haley Hallgren/Alexandra Poletto, USC.
