April 6, 2008

Princeton, NJ - Buoyed by momentum from two big wins on Saturday, the Brown women's water polo team (9-12) coasted to an 11-4 win over George Washington to close its set of games at Princeton's DeNunzio Pool. Sophomore Lauren Presant (Poway, CA) out-scored the Colonials herself with five goals to bring her three-game weekend total to 14.

The Bears seized control of the game from the outset, taking a 3-0 lead after one quarter. They proceeded to extend that lead in each subsequent period. Sophomore Sarah Glick (Bonita, CA) was Brown's other multiple-goal scorer with three markers. Freshman Katherine Stanton (Danville, CA) had five steals, with a goal and an assist as well, while freshman Joanna Wohlmuth (Manhattan Beach, CA) drew four ejections and scored a goal.

In the cage, sophomore Stephanie Laing (Ann Arbor, MI) made four saves. Senior Alexis Blaxberg (Pinecrest, FL) had the Bears' other goal. Presant also dished out two assists.

The Bears' next game will be their first "home" contest of the season, as they will take on #14 Hartwick on Saturday at Wheaton College in Norton, Mass., at 7 p.m.
