Women’s water polo
While most students were on their spring break, the UC Davis women’s water polo team was busy extending their winning streak to eight games. The Aggies locked up three more victories this past week, including their first Big West Conference win against the Pacific. The wins moved Uc Davis to 13-11 on the season.
Sunday March 25 the Aggies traveled to Stockton to face Santa Clara and the host Pacific Tigers in a game that did not count in the conference standings. The Aggies got off to a quick 8-2 lead against Santa Clara and never looked back, winning by a score of 14-5. Freshmen Keelia Houston and Allyson Hansen both scored two goals to help UC Davis overcome Santa Clara.
Later that day, Junior Jessica Dunn scored three goals to lead the Aggies offensive attack against the Tigers. Junior Carmen Eggert and Mohr aided Dunn with two goals of their own.
The Aggies traveled to Stockton again on Saturday for a rematch against Pacific in their first Big West game of the season and won in dramatic fashion. Senior center Dakotah Mohr scored a backhanded game winner with eight seconds left to lead the Aggies to an 8-7 victory.
UC Davis will return to action Saturday against UC Irvine.
