UCSB Goes 1-1 on Final Day of Winter Invitational

UCSB completed its women's water polo Winter Invitational with a win over Marist and a loss to No. 2-ranked USC on a rainy, windy Sunday afternoon.

The Gauchos outscored Marist 5-2 in the second period en route to an 11-5 victory and suffered a 19-5 loss to the Trojans.

Against USC, the Gauchos were overpowered early in the game, falling behind 7-0 in the first period. It was 9-0 in the second before Brenna Thomas got UCSB on the board.

Senior Taylor Shore (11), along with a pair of newcomers Sarah Snyder (11) and Kate Pipkin (9), paced the Gauchos in scoring for the weekend. Sarah Kreiser followed with six, while Natalie Selin and Thomas added five each. Sophie Trabucco (3), Kate Coski (3), Abbey Grosse (2) and senior Jenna Solberg (2) also chipped in.

After opening the season with six straight home games, the Gauchos will head out to Tempe, Ariz. next weekend to participate in the Arizona State Invitational. Several more tournaments will follow before UCSB returns home to face CSU Bakersfield on March 5.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
