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.”
