SCIAC Athletes of the Week

WHITTIER, Calif. – The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) office released the Athletes of the Week for Women's Water Polo Monday and freshman Teresa Marchetti (Messina, Italy) received recognition for the second time as the Offensive Athlete of the Week.

In the 11th Week of Voting, Marchetti earns accolades for the second time in the past four weeks and is the third Poet to receive this recognition this year.

Marchetti led the offense this week for the Purple & Gold as they went 1-1, which included a narrow loss to Claremont-M-S (10-9) followed by a solid 15-5 win over Occidental.  She netted a total of seven goals, added three assists, and recorded a trio of steals during the week. Four of her goals came in the one-goal loss to the Athenas, while all three steals were against the Tigers.   

Whittier returns to the pool this Wednesday, April 17 when they travel to take on Caltech beginning at 7:00pm.
