Santa Rosa Junior College women’s water polo won its fifth straight match Sept. 21,

dominating Sacramento City College 18-4.

The team raced to an early lead thanks to a renewed focus on defense.

“Our main concentration right now is defense,” said head coach Chelsea Hennan. “[We’re]

figuring out how to keep low scoring games and stay in it.”

On this night, defense led to offense for the Bear Cubs.

“We’re a counter attack team,” Hennan said.

With SRJC up 12-2 at halftime, the third quarter was scoreless until sophomore Raquel

Castro sent the first of three unanswered goals home. This squelched any hopes for a

Sacramento comeback.

“We’re super excited, we got off to a pretty rough start so it’s been really nice winning,” said

freshmen Maggie Selzer. “We’re trying to just keep up the momentum.”

SRJC evened its record to 5-5 and picked up its first conference win. The team is now 1-1 in

Big 8 play.

“Something had just clicked and we just all figured it out, how to work together,” Castro

said. “Of course there’s still so much work to do and you can always get better and

improve.”

SRJC faces non-conference foe San Joaquin Delta College at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 28.
