Women's Water Polo Goalie Hogue Sets PCC Save Record
Freshman goalie Hannah Hogue reached 265 saves for the season Thursday at the South Coast Conference Tournament to achieve Pasadena City College women's water polo records for saves in a single season and career.
The Lancers saw their postseason chances squashed when they lost to Mt. San Antonio College, 8-2, but then celebrated Hogue's records with a 19-1 triumph over LA Trade Tech.
PCC (9-16 overall, 4-5 in SCC play) will finish the 2009 season Saturday, November 7 when it plays for fifth place in the conference against El Camino. Game time is 9:15 a.m. at the tournament's host pool of Chaffey College.
Against Mt. SAC, Shannon Adams scored both Lancers goals. Hogue had 9 saves and 1 assist. In the Trade Tech rout, PCC Head Coach Terry Stoddard emptied his bench and watched nine different Lancers reach the net. Leading the way was Darly Htike with 4 goals and both Matiana Coulson and Hogue, playing in the field the latter part of the match, with 3-goal hat tricks. Anneke Forrest added 2 goals and 3 assists.
Also scoring for PCC were Nicole Young (2 goals), Meghan York (2), Brianna Estrada (1), Adams (1), and Merry Sanders (1). PCC shot an efficient 19-for-27 in the match after struggling to a 2-for-20 v. Mt. SAC.
Hogue's first save in the Trade Tech match gave her the PCC saves record, snapping the old mark of 261 set by Aminda Kim in the 2001 season. Hogue (pictured) opened the season by setting the single-game saves record of 21 stops in her very first collegiate match v. Palomar.
