Anna Nazarov

Biography

I joined the inaugural women’s team at UCLA in the fall of 2003 and helped lead BLU to a finals appearance at the College Championships in just the team’s third year of existence. I was chosen by my peers across the country for the Callahan Award in 2007. Every year since 2012, I’ve been honored to represent the U.S. in various international tournaments, such as WUGC, the World Games, WUCC and WCBU. Locally, I captain San Francisco Fury and coach the Cal women’s B team.

Off the field, I am a civil engineer with an emphasis in all things water. I spend my time restoring streams, designing stormwater infrastructure and modeling the movement of water through pipes, culverts, creeks and rivers.

Fun Facts about Anna:

  • I’m also known as Maddog.
  • If I won the lottery, I would quit my job, buy some land and open a dog sanctuary.
  • I LOVE dad jokes. (How do you make a Kleenex dance? Put a little boogie in it!)
  • Ultimate was my first team sport.
