PASADENA, Calif. (Mar. 1, 2016) – Caltech women's water polo freshman Katie Johnston (Livermore, Calif. / Livermore) has been named the SCIAC Co-Female Athlete of the Week for her record-setting start to her career this past weekend.
Johnston scored a single-game program-record nine goals in the Beavers' first win since 2012, an 18-13 victory over Macalester College. The rookie led the team with a hand in 22 goals over the season-opening four-game slate, scoring 14 herself on just 27 attempts and assisting another eight while also ranking second on the team with seven drawn exclusions and three field blocks.
Head Coach Jon Bonafede will lead Johnston and the rest of the Beavers as they head to the Convergence Tournament, hosted by Claremont-Mudd-Scripps and Pomona-Pitzer Colleges, where they will play another four games between Friday and Saturday, Mar. 4 and 5.
