Despite No Wins The Women's Water Polo Team Gains Valuable Experience in Their First Season
April 22, 2002
April 21-In the final game for the Saints' water polo season they dropped a hard fought game to Connecticut College 15-1. Connecticut jumped out with a six goal first quarter and would not let the Saints gain any momentum. After a tough first quarter the Saints stepped up the defense and only gave up three goals in the second quarter and scored one of there own. Angie Mead found the back of the net with just over three minutes remaining in the half. Despite not scoring in the second half the Saints played some of the best defense they have all season. The team showed life in holding Connecticut College to just six goals in the second half and just one of those goals came in the final quarter.
The Women's Water Polo team had a rough first year, but did gain valuable experience for the coming years. This season helped the team get accustomed to the sport and has already helped in the recruitment of several players who will help the team next year.
