Lauren Isacksons athletic credentials were dwarfed by those of her teammates. She joined the vaunted UCLA womens soccer program in 2017 alongside members of the U.S. and Canadian national teams elite athletes accustomed to dominating the high school and club circuits, being the best in their leagues, their states, even their entire home countries.
Isacksons biography on the UCLA roster, meanwhile, lists her as an honorable mention all-league selection in 2014 for the West Bay Athletic League in Northern California.

Full title - No soccer experience, but she still got a spot on elite UCLA team in college admissions scandal
I told my daughters, whose kids are all in elementary grades, that they need to start developing their faux sports profiles now
She’s GUILTY as sin ( not to mention FUGLY! ), you need eyeglasses, and a morality check.
Democrats: “it’s true if WE say it is!!!!”
Music schools now accepting scholarships for air-guitar, air-drums, and playing the stereo.

Universities got scammed by their employees who took bribes.
I wonder what her teammates (who apparently were legitimate high level soccer players) said behind her back?
Not guilty under the auspices of a 12 pack.
There are about 400 links to articles on the Communist News Network homepage, not one on this major scandal.
Never knew her, probably.
But, an interesting question given she was listed in a booklet.
Lori Loughlan’s daughter was supposedly a rower and on the row team, but I don’t think there was even a ruse of it after she was admitted.
