WOODLAND, Calif. -- UCLA's Cassidy Miller (Santa Barbara, Calif./San Marcos HS) has been named the MPSF/KAP7 Newcomer of the Week as announced by the league office on Tuesday.

Playing in her first collegiate game, the true freshman attacker led all scorers with an MPSF season-high-tying five goals (on six shots) in the Bruins' 19-10 season-opening win at No. 11 Fresno State (2-1) on Feb. 14. She also led the team in total points (five) and drew two exclusions and had one steal against the Bulldogs.

She scored the first two goals of the game for UCLA, the first on a penalty shot and the second on a power play in the first period. She added two more power play goals in the second period. Her fifth goal came at even strength and gave UCLA a 12-5 advantage at the 6:32 mark of the third period.

This is the first career MPSF honor for Miller.

Others Nominated: Maryn Dempsey (Cal); Luca Petovary (ASU); Julia Janov (USC).
