California Polytechnic State University's Sarah Ur Named April 11 Pacific Coast Division Player of the Week
BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- Two-time National Player of the Year and three-time First Team All-America selection Sarah Ur (Sr., Lompoc, Calif./Cabrillo) of California Polytechnic State University tallied 10 goals over four games to claim the April 11 Pacific Coast Division Player of the Week award.
She fired home pairs of markers versus the University of Southern California (15-4 W) and the University of California-Los Angeles "B" (14-4 W), along with five goals versus the University of California-Irvine (11-3 W) and a solo strike against San Diego State University (7-0 W) as Cal Poly outscored its opponents 47-11 over the weekend of competition at the University of California-San Diego.
The victories clinched the No. 1 seed for the Pacific Coast Division Championship set for Cal Poly on April 16-17.
Statistically among the best players in the history of the game at the collegiate club level, the Player of the Week award adds to an unmatched legacy of honors.
The 2008-10 Pacific Coast Division Most Valuable Player and National Collegiate Club Championship Most Valuable Player while leading the Mustangs to back-to-back-to-back collegiate club and Pacific Coast Division titles, she is a three-time National Collegiate Club All-Tournament, All-America First Team and Collegiate Water Polo Association Scholar-Athlete Team selection.
In the history of the sport, she is the only player to earn three consecutive division Most Valuable Player, National Collegiate Club Championship Most Valuable Player and two Nationa Player of the Year awards, in addition to ranking as the first freshman in collegiate club history (men and women) to sweep the national awards back in 2008.
