CLAREMONT, Calif. -- No. 6-ranked University of Michigan reached the 30-win plateau for the fourth consecutive season with victories over Pomona-Pitzer Colleges, 17-3, and Fresno Pacific University, 18-6, at Haldeman Pool.
Senior Sarah Roberts (Costa Mesa, Calif./Newport Harbor), who scored six times against Pomona-Pitzer, was one of five Wolverines with hat tricks. Sophomore Kiki Golden (Danville, Calif./Monte Vista) and freshmen Lauren Dudley (Okemos, Mich./Okemos), Katy Feaver (San Diego, Calif./Bishop's) and Sophie Høegh (Coral Gables, Fla./Ransom Everglades) also each had a three-goal game today.
Sophomore Alex Adamson (Coronado, Calif./Coronado) started both games and made seven saves on the day. Junior Morgan Turner (Mission Viejo, Calif./Trabuco Hills) played the backend of both contests, making 11 saves in four periods of work.
Roberts' six goals led the Wolverines offensively against the host Sagehens. Feaver was not far off the senior's pace, tallying four points on a pair of goals and two assists. On the defensive side of the ball, sophomore Natalie Naruns (Los Altos, Calif./St. Francis) notched a career-high three steals to go with two assists.
Dudley took control of the Michigan offense against Fresno Pacific, denting the twine three times and setting up two more Wolverine scores. Junior Claire Ivry (Orinda, Calif./Miramonte) also had a big game, contributing two goals and two assists.
Michigan will now turn its focus to the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Eastern Championship (April 29-May 1) at Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind. The Wolverines, which have won the last three CWPA crowns, are seeking the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Championship, held May 13-15 at Canham Natatorium.
