BUBBA ON FIRE TO START JUNIOR SEASON

UCLA junior centerfielder Bubba Nickles has picked up where she left off from a year ago, carrying over a hit streak that has extended to 22 games as of Friday night.

Nickles, who has CHamoru blood with deep roots on Guam, is batting .417 and leads the second-ranked Bruins in home runs (5), RBI (16) and slugging percentage (.889) as UCLA has raced out to an 11-0 record and sits right behind top-ranked Florida State in the country.

After a sweep in a Hawaii tournament last week, the success has continued this weekend, including a big 7-1 win over the 4th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners.

Bubba and her parents Ted and Natalie visited Guam in the off season last August where Bubba put on a softball clinic and also participated in the APL Women’s Softball All-Star Game at Guerrero Field in Paseo.

UPDATE: Bubba’s streak ended at 24 games!
