UCSB Water Polo Routed by No. 3 UCLA

In its final game of the weekend in Hawaii, the UCSB women's water polo team (15-9, 0-2) fell to No. 3 UCLA by a final score of 19-2.

Senior utility Taylor Shore put away her team-leading 40th goal of the season late in the first quarter, while freshman attacker Natalie Selin added another goal just before halftime.

Shore has now reached the 40-goal mark for the second consecutive season and second time in her career. Last year, she finished with 46 – good for second on the team – on the way to All-Big West Honorable Mention recognition.

UCLA (17-1, 3-0), which has now won seven straight games, opened the scoring up with five goals. Shore's goal came at the 2:32 mark of the first quarter, making it 5-1. The Bruins would add one more score to take a 6-1 lead into the second.

The Gauchos would get another goal with under 30 seconds left in the half, as Selin scored to make it 12-2. That would prove to be the final goal of the day for UCSB, which has now gone 6-3 over its last nine games.

With three games left in the regular season, UCSB will return home this week to face No. 6 UC Irvine on Saturday, Apr. 8.

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!
