Rouleau Named Big West Player of the Week

March 17, 2010

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - UC Santa Barbara's Lizzie Rouleau led the Gauchos with eight goals in a pair of non-conference victories last Sunday to secure Big West Women's Water Polo Player of the Week honors.

Rouleau accounted for eight of the Gauchos' 19 goals in home wins over Cal State San Bernardino (11-9) and Bucknell (8-3).

She tallied four goals in each of the wins to tie a season-high. Her effort this week moved her into first on the team with 22 total goals on the season. Rouleau also drew five ejections on the week, including five against the Coyotes.

This marks the senior's first BWC weekly honor. She was a First Team All-Big West selection in 2009.

The Gauchos, who have posted an 11-8 overall record so far this year, will be back in action on Mar. 27 when they host the two-day Gaucho Invitational at Campus Pool.
