Wilson Sponsored School UCLA Wins NCAA Volleyball Title

Chicago, IL (January, 2012) Wilson Sporting Goods Co. is behind more winning moments than any other brand in sports. It's our commitment to excellence that has developed our lasting partnership with UCLA Women's Volleyball. Throughout the year, this Pac-12 team hits the courts with the Wilson I-COR volleyball. After years of hard work and dedication, Wilson congratulates this remarkable team on winning the NCAA Volleyball Title.

On Saturday December 17, the Bruins triumphantly brought home their fourth NCAA title in school history. They are the sport's first new champion in five years. UCLA is among the top volleyball programs in the country, and their performance proved they're made of greatness. The Bruins relentlessly played with passion and determination attributes that match what Wilson is all about.

Mike Sealy, UCLA alum and three-time All-American, took over this team just two short years ago. Sealy played volleyball at UCLA from 1990-93, and he returned to his alma mater with ambitious drive. In his first year as Head Coach, Sealy built on this school's rich volleyball history and brought the girls to All-Pac-10 team. This year he is the second youngest coach to win an NCAA Championship.

"Wilson is extremely excited that the Bruins were able to bring home the NCAA Volleyball title and a nation's best 108 NCAA titles", says Enrico DiMario, Global Business Director for Wilson Volleyball.  "We're honored to have a partnership with Coach Sealy and this extraordinary volleyball team. We can't wait to see the great success this relationship will bring to the game of volleyball in the future."
During the season, the UCLA Women's Volleyball Team plays with the Wilson I-COR Performance Volleyball. Coach Sealy became a quick believer in Wilson volleyball products. That's because Wilson puts the same level of dedication into our products that our devoted championship athletes put into their game. Our innovative work shows in the unbeatable performance the Wilson I-COR unleashes. Using our patented I-COR technology, this ball enhances control while giving every player the power they need to dominate the game. The Wilson I-COR is truly a force to be reckoned with on the courts, and is the official ball of UCLA Women's Volleyball. Wilson is privileged to be behind this team's NCAA Championship. We look forward to deepening our longstanding relationship with the Bruins, and working with Coach Sealy to continue developing groundbreaking volleyball products that will bring more winning moments to athletes at every level of play.
