This Week In Water Polo
The UC Santa Barbara women's water polo team will head to UC San Diego to participate in the Triton Invite. No. 18 UC Santa Barbara takes on No. 11 Loyola Marymount at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, February 8. The rest of the tournament matches depend on their previous games.

Last Time Out
Two weekends ago, the Gauchos held the UCSB Winter Invite. UCSB opened the tournament with a win over Cal Baptist, but took on tough competition the next two days. They ended the tournament with a 2-5 overall record.

Fired Up Freshmen
The freshmen class has been helping the Gauchos on the offensive end of the pool. Freshman Carly Christian has scored seven goals overall over the course of seven games, and freshman Taylor Shore is right behind her with five of her own.

Defensive Force
After the loss of Ruth Milne, sophomore Mackenzie Brokaw had big shoes to fill coming into the 2013-2014 campaign. Brokaw has made it clear that she is a force in the goal, racking up 42 saves over the tournament. 

Next Up
Following the tournament at UC San Diego, the Gauchos will head to Irvine to participate in the UCI Invite from Saturday, February 22 to Sunday, February 23.
