The Sagehen women’s water polo team (16-11, 11-0 SCIAC) picked up three tight victories last week, beating Whittier (10-9, 6-5 SCIAC) 14-13 and La Verne (9-12, 7-4 SCIAC) 8-6 at home on Senior Day Saturday, before beating Cal Lutheran (17-8, 10-2 SCIAC) 7-5 at home Wednesday.

The Sagehens trailed Whittier 13-12 with under three minutes remaining, but Anna Yu PO ’19 and Lucie Abele PO ’22 scored two goals within 30 seconds to give P-P the win. Morgan Stockham PZ ’19 was key in the win over Cal Lu — a matchup between the top two teams in the SCIAC — and finished with seven saves and one steal.
