Water Polo Update

This week, the Pomona-Pitzer men's water polo team completed their regular season, and are preparing for the SCIAC tournament coming up this weekend (11/13-15) at CMS.

The Hens won their final two pool matches, and are seeded #3 in the SCIAC tournament. This past week the Sagehens faced off against La Verne, Concordia-Irvine, and Cal Lutheran.

Against La Verne, Pomona-Pitzer won handily (13-4), then lost a close game to Concordia-Irvine (11-8), and defeated Cal Lutheran (8-5) in an exciting game. Against the Kingsmen of Cal Lutheran, Pomona-Pitzer started off poorly, falling behind 0-3 in the first quarter, but the Hens rallied, tying the game up in the third quarter and emerging triumphant in the end. Versus Cal Lutheran, freshman Jason Cox led the scoring with 4 goals, followed by Mark Hudnall (2), Ben Hadley (1), and Jason Henshall (1), while sophomore goalie Kyle Pokorny stood strong on defense with 7 blocks against the Kingsmen.
