Santa Rosa Junior College Women's Water Polo finished its 2012 season strong grabbing several key victories late in the season. The Cubs went 7-6 in the second half off the season, pulling huge wins over rivals Modesto, Delta, and San Mateo. With their dominate performance in the first round of the Big 8 Championship Tournament, the Cubs beat Modesto 6-1 in a game that would advance them to NorCal Championship Tournament. That win sent SRJC to the playoffs for the 10th time in the last 12 years. Several of SRJC's 2012 players were honored for their efforts including: sophomore attacker Gabi Slavid, All Conference First Team and All NorCal Second Team; freshman center Michelle Pollastrini, All Conference Second Team; and freshman Megan McGrath, All Conference Second Team, and Big 8 Tournament and NorCal Tournament teams. The Bear Cubs return seven players this season and will be led by returning captain Brooke Wolford. The Cubs will look to strong incoming freshmen talent in 2013 including: Nicole Groat from Bear River HS and Lexi Baldwin from Vintage HS. SRJC women's polo has produced more than 40 all conference players, 26 All Northern California players, two conference MVP's, 19 All Americans, and over 45 All-Academic student athletes. The Cubs had back-to-back history-making seasons in 2008 and 2007 claiming the 2008 Northern California Championship Title, and had two consecutive final four appearances at the California Community College State Championship Tournament, culminating in a two year overall record of 47-15. The SRJC Women's Water Polo Team is comprised of athletes who understand the meaning of commitment and effort. Coaches McCormick and Hennan recruit athletes who not only demonstrate a high level of team work, focus, and discipline in the pool and in the classroom, but who also like to have fun with their team and enjoy competition.
