SAN FRANCISCO -- UCLA freshmen Sophie Moore (Encinitas, Calif.) and Natalie Myszkowski (Manhattan Beach, Calif.) have been named the Pac-12 Beach Volleyball Pair of the Week as announced by the league office today.

The freshman duo (14-0) has the best record of any court-four tandem in the country at 13-0 and have helped the Bruins remain undefeated (15-0). They helped UCLA beat five ranked teams among six total victories last week, including two in the top five.

They also clinched the 3-2 victory over No. 4 Florida State on Friday with a come-from-behind win. Dropped the first set, 17-21, before winning the second, 21-18, and the third, 15-12, to lead UCLA to its seventh consecutive win over the Seminoles. The pair also moved up to court three against UAB on Sunday and rallied for another three-set win, 18-21, 21-15, 20-18.

Moore and Myszkowki posted a straight-set win over No. 5 LSU on Sunday, as the Bruins beat the Tigers for the fourth consecutive time. The duo improved to 4-0 this year in three-set matches, which includes wins over No. 1 USC, No. 7 GCU, No. 4 Florida State and UAB.

This is the first weekly honor for both Moore and Myszkowski.
