Women's Water Polo - Wed, Mar. 29, 2017

ROHNERT PARK, Calif. -- UC San Diego senior Alexis Wieseler has been selected as the KAP7 Western Water Polo Association (WWPA) Women's Player of the Week for the week of Mar. 20-27, it was announced Wednesday.

Wieseler, a native of Highland, Calif., had nine goals in three games against WWPA opponents over the past weekend including a game-high six against Cal State Monterey Bay in UCSD's WWPA opener on Sunday.  She also totaled eight steals and five assists in three contests as the Tritons went 3-0 against CSUMB, Sonoma State and Cal State East Bay.

This is the third-career WWPA Player of the Week award for Wieseler, she earned the award as a freshman in 2013 and again as a junior in 2015 before going down with a season-ending injury.

Looking ahead to this week, UC San Diego (14-12, 3-0 WWPA) will host Hartwick on Friday and UC Irvine on Sunday. Sonoma State (6-16, 0-1 WWPA) will take on Cal State East Bay (10-11, 1-1 WWPA) in Hayward on Friday then head to Fresno Saturday for a matchup with Fresno Pacific.  Cal State Monterey Bay (6-9, 0-2 WWPA), Gannon (6-10) and Mercyhurst (3-11) have the week off.

In exactly one month, all six WWPA teams will converge on the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio for the 2017 WWPA Women's Championship, set for April 28-30.  This year's event will be hosted by Mercyhurst.  The teams will compete for the WWPA title and the opportunity to capture the conference's automatic qualifier into the NCAA Women's Water Polo Championships on May 12-14 at the University of Indiana Natatorium in Indianapolis.
