Three Bruins Named All-Americans
A trio of Bruins received All-America recognition by the United Soccer Coaches for 2020-21. UCLA's All-American are senior midfielder Delanie Sheehan (first team), sophomore forward Mia Fishel (second team) and junior goalkeeper Lauren Brzykcy (third team).
Sheehan, who was also a first-team Senior CLASS Award All-American and Senior CLASS Award finalist, finished her Bruin career as a Pac-12 champion, the 2020-21 Pac-12 Midfielder of the Year. A semifinalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy and a first-team All-Pac-12 and All-Pacific Region honoree, she started and played in 16 games this season and recorded four goals, five assists and 13 points. In four seasons at UCLA, she totaled 15 goals and 18 assists in 86 games played.
Fishel, who led UCLA in scoring a year ago as a freshman, tied for the team lead in assists this year as a sophomore, with six to go along with six goals. Her six goals and 18 points ranked second on the Bruin squad. She also led the team and the Pac-12 with four game-winning goals. Fishel, who earned first-team All-Pac-12 and All-Pacific Region honors, has totaled 20 goals, 10 game-winning goals and 49 points in two seasons in Westwood.
Brzykcy, in her first year as a full-time starter, becomes just the third UCLA goalkeeper to earn All-America honors. The Pac-12 Goalkeeper of the Year and first-team all-conference and all-region selection compiled a 0.73 goals against average and seven shutouts while playing every minute of all 17 games. Her 13 victories led the Pac-12 Conference. Brzykcy had six games in which she totaled five or more saves this season, including a nine-save effort against USC on Mar. 18 and an eight-save game on Apr. 16, also against the Trojans.
The three All-Americans are the most by UCLA in a single season since four Bruins (Abby Dahlkemper, Sam Mewis, Katelyn Rowland and Sarah Killion) earned All-America acclaim. UCLA has had a first-team All-American in four consecutive years.
