Eight current Bruins were on the roster when their team won its 12th NCAA title in 2019.
Over half of this year’s blue and gold squad was present during last year’s postseason run that ended in the quarterfinals of the Women’s College World Series.
The Bruins have secured their sixth and final series win of the regular season.
No. 6 UCLA softball (42-8, 18-5 Pac-12) defeated California (28-26-1, 8-15) by scores of 8-0 and 10-4 in its first two contests of the series on Thursday and Friday, respectively.
Over the past month, the Bruins have lost five of their last 11 Pac-12 outings.
Coach Kelly Inouye-Perez said the past up-and-down month has provided the team with learning experiences as it enters the postseason.
The Bruins have lost three of their last four games and no longer sit atop the Pac-12 standings.
But coach Kelly Inouye-Perez said the blue and gold are actually rounding into form.
The Bruins won the series, but in going for the series sweep, they took a mercy-rule defeat for the first time since 2017.
No. 3 UCLA softball (39-6, 15-3 Pac-12) shut out Utah (24-24, 6-12) by scores of 1-0 and 2-0 in the series’ first two matchups Friday and Saturday, respectively.
