The Bruins piled on the titles in the month of May: A matter of weeks after Women's Water Polo won the university's record 101st NCAA championship and Women's Tennis took the 102nd, UCLA Men's Golf kept the ball rolling and brought home No. 103.

And on May 31, senior Kevin Chappell made a par on the 18th hole to give UCLA a one-shot victory at the 111th NCAA Men's Golf Championship, hosted by Purdue at its Kampen Course in West Lafayette, Ind.

Chappell won the individual title and led the fourth-ranked Bruins to their first men's golf title since 1988. He finished at 2-under 286 and was the only player in the field under par for the event. He became the first UCLA player to win NCAA medalist honors.

"The feeling I have right now is better than anything," said Chappell. "To win individually is great, but it becomes even more special because the team also won. I can't say enough about this team. All season long we've always been there to pick each other up and that's what championship teams do."
