Women's Water Polo Update- FYI- I know the riders are female. Are the horses also female?

I foolishly looked at the UCLA website this morning (at 11:30 am), to see how our Women's Water Polo team did against Michigan in the 8:45am opening round game in the Stanford Invitational. Naturally, there was no info- obvious conflict with the morning donut run. I then turned to the Stanford website, which surprisingly (to me) also did not have any info. Knowing from looking out the window that the odds were remote that thunder and lightning had caused a delay, I then turned to the Michigan website. Bingo- UCLA won the match 12-3. Congrats Bruins !! And thank you Michigan for having a competent athletic department.

Michigan was ranked #13 in the preseason poll, so this was a decent win. Next up for the Bruins is Cal at 4:45 pm. Cal was ranked #5 in the same preseason poll, so this should be a much harder test. Let's just hope the Cal athletic department is on the ball, so we can get a score before midnight.

UCLA concludes pool play tomorrow at 9:10 am against San Jose State. Naturally, the UCLA website does not even acknowledge that this match will even take place. Thank you Stanford website for the info.

UCLA's final match will be a cross-over match against a team from the other bracket. There are matches for 7th place, 5th place, 3rd place and the championship match. Stanford is ranked #2 in the country in the preseason poll (#1 $C is sitting this one out). A win over Stanford in their pool at 3:30 pm in the championship game would be a nice way to finish the weekend.

And it would keep me away from any Pete Carroll or Richard Sherman sighting, which also works.

Results from the upcoming games should be available soon after they are done, depending on the skills of the Cal, San Jose State and Stanford, Hawaii, UC Irvine and UC Davis (depending on final match opponent) athletic departments. Results should be available on UCLA's website before spring break.

The headline above is a tribute to Doughnut's apparent awareness level in this sport.
