Women's water polo headed to CWPA Championship

On Saturday, April 20, junior Cailin Jope and senior Lisett Calderon of Mercyhurst University women’s water polo were named to the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Division II Easter All-Tournament Team.

“It’s always nice to be named to a tournament team, it lets you know your hard work paid off,” Jope said.

During the CWPA Division II Eastern All-Tournament’s two games, Calderon notched three steals, three goals and two assists. Additionally, Jope went on to score three goals.

At an impressive 14-14 on the season, the Lakers are headed to Michigan this weekend for the CWPA Eastern Championship where they will face Bucknell University.

“We try to focus on being a close team, and part of that involves drinking chocolate milk,” said Jope. “Going into this weekend we just want to play our hardest and finish successfully.”
