Camels Top Monmouth, Close Out Opening Weekend 4-2

KENOSHA, Wis.--The Connecticut College women's water polo team played three more conference matches at Carthage College Sunday in Kenosha, Wis.

The Camels secured a 10-5 victory against Monmouth College but dropped an 11-2 decision to Washington & Jefferson College before closing out the weekend with a 14-9 loss to Carthage.

Connecticut College Head Men's and Women's Water Polo Coach Matt Anderson was pleased with his team's strong start in the Badger State this weekend.

"Going 4-2 is a nice weekend," Coach Anderson said. "Today was an outlier as we had to play three games in 4.5 hours. With a small team, it's physically not possible to expect to be able to play six games in 28 hours. Especially after only a few weeks of practice. The ladies did a wonderful job and kept working hard regardless of their fatigue.  Sarah Sovia (Pottstown, Pa.) did great in her first opportunity to be a starting goalie. Kelsey Millward (Baie D'Urfe, Quebec) had a great weekend in so many areas as did Abbey Wrobleski (pictured, Honolulu, Hawaii), Brianna Harrity (Jeffersonville, Pa.) and the others."

Sovia made 11 saves to lead the Camels in the victory against the Fighting Scots of Monmouth.  Millward scored three goals while sophomore April Anderson (Mill Valley, Calif.) had two.

Sovia wrapped up the opening weekend with 53 saves in the cage. Millward finished with 19 goals and 13 earned ejections for the Camels. Wrobleski chipped in with eight goals, four assists, three steals and three earned ejections for Connecticut College.

The Camels will host the Siena College Saints this Thursday night for a 6:00 p.m. match in Lott Natatorium.
