Water Polo Tosses Pomona

    The UCSD women’s water polo team suited up in its finest Speedo-endorsed attire and hit Canyonview Pool on Saturday to square off against Pomona-Pitzer College in a hard-fought battle to the death. Well, not quite to the death, but the heated action and Triton attack led the onlookers to believe that lives could be in danger. In the end, Pomona Pitzer’s record was the only thing to take a beating, as the UCSD women swam away with a 17-5 victory.

    It was a big day for Dana Tucker and Emma Kudritzki, each scoring four goals in the Sagehen stomping. Courtney Hemmerly was also impressive, tallying a hat trick, while Danielle Boyle and Erin Welsh each had a pair. Megan Hubbs was solid in the cage, making four saves in three quarters. Andrea Cornford relieved Hubbs in the fourth and closed out the victory, making one save in the process.

    Sagehen Jacquie Cole notched three goals and goalie Claire Townsend knocked down nine saves in the loss, which caused the team’s record to drop to 3-6.

    With the win, the Tritons improved their record to 12-10 on the season and are currently ranked 11th in the Collegiate Water Polo poll.

    They will next see action this Thursday when they go head to head with Loyola Marymount University in what promises to be a fierce showdown. The last time these two teams met up, the Lions prevailed in a grueling overtime victory, and now the Tritons are out for revenge. Show up when the ball drops at 3 p.m. to see the two teams battle for victory and for the respect of their peers.
