LOS ANGELES – Sophomore Lexy Denaburg and junior Abby Van Winkle of the beach volleyball team have been selected the UCLA Student-Athletes of the Week, presented by Ready, for April 5 – April 11.

Their winning streak includes wins over five ranked teams, including No. 2 TCU and No. 6 LSU. The eight-match winning streak is a season-best for the duo. They are 19-2 on the year, all on court one.
Last week, they went 8-1 in sets played, dropping only one set, 28-26, to the No. 1 pair of Oregon. They posted wins over No. 12 California, Arizona State, Oregon and Washington last week.
