Men’s Volleyball: UCLA vs. Brigham Young

Men’s volleyball had the deck seemingly stacked against them at the start of the 2018 season: They finished 2017 with a 17-10 record and failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament, even though they were ranked sixth. The team also lost middle blocker Mitch Stahl, who graduated and is now playing for the U.S. national team. This year, however, the No. 2-ranked Bruins are on a tear — they recently defeated two-time defending national champion Ohio State, marking Coach John Speraw’s 300th career win in the process. They’ll take on the No. 7-ranked Cougars in their last home match of the season.

APR. 7 / SAT / 7 P.M. Location: Pauley Pavilion. Tickets: $8 adult (general admission); $5 youth/student (general admission); children 2 and under free. Phone: (310) UCLA–WIN. Web:

Men’s Tennis: UCLA vs. Stanford

Last year, UCLA made it to the quarterfinals of the NCAA national championships before losing to Georgia. This year, the team continues to be strong, recently winning a spot in the National Men’s Team Indoor Championships. UCLA has two fan favorites returning this year: junior Maxime Cressy and senior Martin Redlicki, who was named the No. 1 overall player in the Oracle/ITA Division I men’s national singles rankings. The March 30 match against Stanford is sure to be an exciting one — UCLA currently ranks seventh in the country, while Stanford ranks fifth.

MAR. 30 / FRI / 3 P.M. Location: Los Angeles Tennis Center. Tickets: Free . Phone: (310) UCLA–WIN. Web:

Women’s Tennis: UCLA vs. Arizona

Sophomore Ena Shibahara.

For 15 straight years, the UCLA women’s tennis team made it to the Round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament, but that record was broken two seasons ago. Health has been an ongoing issue for the women’s team, but with sophomore Ena Shibahara and junior Alaina Miller back on track after recovering from illness, the No. 13-ranked Bruins are feeling strong and ready to take on the Wildcats.

Baseball: UCLA vs. Cal State Fullerton

After a strong showing last year, the UCLA baseball team has been picked third in the Preseason Pac-12 Coaches Poll. Currently ranked No. 11, the Bruins have retained most of their team from last year, assuring that they will maintain their strong offense. UCLA returns junior pitcher Jon Olsen and sophomore All-American Michael Toglia, who finished second on the team in home runs and RBIs.

Softball: UCLA vs. Arizona State

UCLA’s softball team is coming in hot; they swept Ole Miss in the NCAA Super Regionals last year. The Bruins may have lost outfielder Gabrielle Maurice and infielder Delaney Spaulding to graduation, but they’ve added a crop of promising new freshmen, including Briana Perez, recently named the Pac-12 Conference Freshman of the Week. The No. 4-ranked Bruins, picked second in the Pac-12 Preseason Coaches Poll, will take on the No. 18-ranked Sun Devils in Easton Stadium.
