Women's Water Polo takes down Caltech

PASADENA — Jassmine Kezman and Sara Winsky led the Leopards offensively and the University of La Verne women's water polo team routed the Caltech Beavers at Braun Pool 14-7.

Kezman finished with a game-high four goals and led the Leopards with three steals. Kezman currently leads the SCIAC with 36 goals and 43 points.

Winsky notched the best performance of her young La Verne career. The freshman from Sierra Madre scored three times and added one assist and one steal.

Sage Nowell scored twice for the Leopards. Samantha Murillo got the start in the cage notching two steals and a save to pick up her first win of the season. Elisa Novo jumped in front of the net in the second half, recording three saves and two steals.

Emilie Eastman got the Leopards on the board first, scoring less than two minutes into the game off an Ilene Guerrero pass. The Beavers' Katie Johnson responded quickly, evening the game thirty seconds later.

But that would be the last the Caltech would be close as the Leopards ended the first quarter on a 3-0 off of goals by Kezman, Ashley Garcia, and Winsky.

After La Verne went into halftime up by four, Taylor Puno and Sage Nowell got the Leopards rolling in the third quarter, scoring back-to-back goals to extend the Leopards' lead to 8-2. Guerrero and Kelly Riedel each scored once. Riedel and Christine Castrellon each dished out two assists. 

Whittier 12, La Verne 8

The Leopards opened the day with a home game against the Poets. Kezman led La Verne with five goals in the effort with Guarina Garcia scoring twice and Victoria Mezack notching one goal.

Shelby Garcia picked up six saves and a steal. Teresa Marchetti led Whittier with four goals.
