LOS ANGELES - The California women's gymnastics team received strong all-around performances from seniors My-Lan Dodd (38.600) and Miho Maeda (38.725) but couldn't overcome a dominating performance by No. 2 UCLA in taking second at a quad meet at Pauley Pavilion Sunday.

The two-time defending NCAA team champion Bruins posted a 197.150 to defeat the Golden Bears (191.175), Sacramento State (190.375) and Cal State Fullerton (190.325). UCLA gymnasts swept the top three positions on each event with Kristen Maloney (39.750), Tasha Schwikert (39.625) and Kate Richardson (39.500) finishing 1-2-3 in the all-around.

Maeda posted Cal's best individual finish, scoring a 9.775 to finish fourth on balance beam. Dodd's top score of the day was a 9.775 on floor exercise for seventh in that event.

The Bears (4-1 overall, 0-1 Pac-10) return to action Friday at UC Davis, which the Bears topped 191.850-187.375 in their season opener Jan. 14 in Berkeley. Meet time at the Aggies' Recreation Hall is 7:00 p.m.
