While the Pasadena City College women's water polo team is having a hard season, freshman goalie Alenoush Aslanin has made great strides in improved play that has impressed head coach Terry Stoddard.
The importance of having Jazmine Hernandez and Scarlett Bonilla in the Pasadena City College women's water polo team lineup was never more apparent than during the Lancers match v. El Camino on Wednesday. The two key starters were out of action due to injuries as PCC could not generate much of an offense during a 15-4, South Coast Conference defeat at the Aquatic Center.
In a match where no lead was safe, the Pasadena City College women's water polo team pulled out a thrilling 15-14, overtime victory over Los Angeles Trade Tech Friday in the first round of the 13th Pasadena Bowl Tournament.
Following an 18-5, South Coast Conference loss Wednesday against visiting Chaffey College, the Pasadena City College women's water polo team is looking to shore up its defense and continue some recent encouraging signs on offense.
Seven different Lancers netted at least one goal as the Pasadena City College women's water polo team snapped a start of the season, 5-game losing streak Friday by defeating Ohlone College, 11-5, at the Cabrillo Tournament (Aptos in Northern California).
The first thing that stands out on the 2013 Pasadena City College women's water polo roster is the fact it contains 10 freshmen and its only returning sophomore was a reserve last season. So, head coach Terry Stoddard knows his 15th season in charge of the Lancers will involve more teaching than just coaching.
