Hard Work Pays Off

The Women's UCSC Water Polo Team training at CrossFit Santa Cruz.

The UCSC Women's Water Polo team got the automatic bid to DIII Nationals after beating Cal State East Bay by one in overtime on Sunday. The girls will be going to Connecticut on April 30th to compete for the National Championship. They have one more home game April 19th at 1pm before they go East. CrossFit Santa Cruz's Danielle Mulford coaches both the Men's and Women's Water Polo Teams at UCSC and both teams do Crossfit. She says, "CrossFit cuts our training time in half. We are the fittest team in DIII and have worked incredibly hard for our success. Go Slugs!"
