UCLA Bruins' Ally Cook and Quincy McMahon Earn Weekly Honors in Impressive Start to the Season

In a remarkable start to their 2023 season, two standout players from the UCLA Bruins women’s soccer team have been turning heads. Ally Cook, a 5’9″ graduate forward, and Quincy McMahon, a 5’7″ junior defender, are already making significant contributions to their team’s quest to replicate their 2022 national championship victory.

Ally Cook’s outstanding performance on the field has earned her the title of Pac-12 Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this year. In the most recent match against Colorado, Cook scored two goals, leading UCLA to a 3-1 victory. With five goals and 11 points this season, she stands as the top scorer for the team, ranking fourth in the Pac-12.

On the other hand, Quincy McMahon has been a defensive powerhouse for the Bruins. Her exceptional performance has earned her the title of Pac-12 Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week for the second consecutive week and the third time this season, according to a statement from UCLA.

McMahon’s tenacious defensive skills have played a crucial role in UCLA’s ability to stifle their opponents. The Bruins have held seven out of the eight teams they’ve faced to just five or fewer shot attempts. With a stellar record of 7-1 overall and 1-0 in Pac-12 play, the fifth-ranked Bruins are now gearing up for two challenging matchups in Washington State.

Tonight at 7 p.m., UCLA will face off against the 5-2 Washington Huskies, setting the stage for an intense battle. Following that, they will take on the 7-2 Washington State University Cougars, the 23rd-ranked team in the nation, in a noon matinee showdown on Sunday.
