SCIAC Athletes of the Week

WHITTIER, Calif. – The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) released their Athletes of the Week for Men's Water Polo Monday.

Senior goalie Murat Ersoz (Istanbul, Turkey) was recognized as the SCIAC Defensive Athlete of the Week in the first week of voting. Ersoz was stellar between the posts during the Poets 2-2 weekend at the UCSD Invite.  Over the four game stretch he collected 37 saves, three steals and two assists.  Against Chapman he made 14 stops, notched 11 saves against No. 14 Loyola Marymount, secured 10 against Concordia (Calif.) and added a pair against No. 4 Cal. 

Whittier returns to the pool this Saturday, September 14 as they travel east to the Inland Empire Classic where they will take on No. 5 Long Beach State and No. 1 USC.
