Each member of this group has been with the program for at least 20 years, including head coach Kelly Inouye-Perez, who came to Westwood in 1989 as a freshman and has never left. The Bruins have reached the WCWS, the pinnacle event of collegiate softball, in each of the last five seasons. During that time, UCLA has won 253 contests, 91 in Pac-12 play. Under their tutelage, 13 Bruins have been named NFCA All-Americans.
