Water Polo Hosts Senior Day Against No. 14 Indiana
TEMPE, Ariz. – No. 9 Sun Devil Water Polo (13-11, 1-4) hosts their final game of the regular season this Saturday, April 16 at 12:00 pm against No. 14 Indiana (14-13, 1-4). Prior to the game, the Sun Devil senior class will be honored in the Senior Day festivities set to kickoff 15 minutes before gametime. The game will be streamed via the Arizona State Live Stream 4 which can be viewed here.
The Sun Devils are coming off of an 11-15 loss to No. 1 USC, in a game that the Trojans never managed to put out of reach for ASU. In the game, freshman attacker Vanda Baksa netted four goals and an assist, which was enough to earn her fifth MPSF Newcomer of the Week honor.
The Hoosiers are coming off of a three game weekend, where they opened with two wins against Cal State East Bay and Santa Clara before dropping a conference game to No. 2 Stanford, 6-13. They post a 1-4 record in their MPSF which is the same as the Sun Devils, the sole win coming over SJSU for both teams.
This is the second meeting between the two teams this season, and in that last meeting at the Barbara Kalbus Invitational, Vanda Baksa set the program's single-game goal record with eight goals off of nine shots in the contest. She holds the program's record for single-game goals (8), assists (7), and points (10).
