WOMEN'S WATER POLO: HORNETS RISE UP

The Hornets have been on an absolute tear the last three weeks winning their last twelve games.

The hits just keep on coming as Fullerton continues to surge as the right time in the season. This past weekend, FC swept through the competition at the Ventura College Tournament.

On Friday, FC beat both Mt. San Antonio College and Merced by a score of 14-7. Against Mt. SAC, the combination of Bryanna Santis and Alexandra Lopez proved potent as they produced 4 goals apiece. Santis also had 4 assists and Lopez contributed 2 steals. Against Merced, Briana Portales led the way with 5 goals, 2 assists, and a steal. 

On Saturday, the Hornets defeated El Camino College 17-1 and tournament host, Ventura, 14-5. Diana Leivas (6 goals) and Tarsis Ledezma (5 goals) were the top scorers. Leivas also had 4 steals. In the game against Ventura, Abigail Nunez and Santis tossed in 3 goals each, while Lopez scored 2 with 3 steals.

In all four games played in the tournament, FC goalie Tatiana Cava was stellar with 38 saves.
