Scoring 15 goals at the Seawolf Splash netted Laurel Stricklin of Sonoma State University co-player of the week honors in the Western Water Polo Association.
She was joined by Anne Scott of Loyola Marymount University.
Last weekend’s impressive four game tally, including three against nationally ranked teams, gives Stricklin 31 goals this season, an average of 2.4 per contest.
Earlier this season Stricklin, a senior from Brea, moved into second place for career goals at Sonoma State. Her total is now 154, putting Stricklin on pace to become the all-time leader. Amanda Haddock tops the Seawolves’ career list with 187 goals.
Sonoma State is 2-11 with a little bit more than half the season to play. All the Seawolves’ losses have come against teams ranked in the Collegiate Water Polo Association Top 20 poll.
Next up for Sonoma State is the Aggie Shootout, hosted by UC Davis, on Mar. 6 with matches scheduled against Cal State Bakersfield and UC Davis.
