The University of La Verne women's water polo squad would suffer a 13-2 defeat at the hands of a potent Claremont-Mudd-Scripps offense in conference action Saturday morning at the La Verne Aquatic Center.
CMS was anchored by a five-goal first quarter that would help propel the Athenas to a comfortable win over the Leopards.
Newly minted swimming All-American Maddie Lovrensky returned to the pool for La Verne after having competed at last weekend's NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships to contribute a goal for the La Verne squad. Ryanne Bible also struck the back of the net for the Leopards.
Leopard goalkeeper Lauren Shepard captured four saves on the day.
