Bowdoin Tournament - April 5-6

We had another great weekend for the Women's Water Polo team.  We played strongly against BU in our first game, holding them to three goals in the end (10-13 loss).  We followed with a tough game against Yale (5-16), but we kept the smiles on and worked on clean passes, defense, and a strong offensive set up.

We had an early start Sunday morning with a 9am game against MIT.  Bates women held strong and showed effective offense with impressive offense and defense during exclusions (man-up and man-down).  We came out with a loss, but improved both our technique and comfort with the game.  We finished the weekend off against Bowdoin.  Bowdoin had us in speed and came out with a win against our team.  However, the Bates women had strong perimeter passes, good communication, and a great attitude.

This week we are all working through our finals week of the spring semester.  We are looking forward to our final weekend of the 2014 season and hope you come out to support us at Boston University. Our games on Saturday, April 12 are at 2:10pm against BU, and 4:40pm against MIT.  Sunday's schedule will be determined from Saturday's results.
