UCSD headed to NCAA Championship with defeat of Pomona-Pitzer

  Sarah Lizotte scored four times in the win against Pomona-Pizter.

LA JOLLA, Calif. -- With the return of the entire team that reached the National Collegiate Women’s Water Polo Championship in 2013, head coach Brad Kreutzkamp and the 2014 UC San Diego water polo team had one goal in mind this season -- reach the NCAA Championship for the second consecutive season and third time in school history.

That goal was accomplished on Saturday with a victory against Pomona-Pitzer, 13-9, in the National Collegiate Championship play-in game at Canyonview Aquatic Center.

The Tritons will head to the eight-team field in Los Angeles to face No. 2 UCLA.

Sarah Lizotte, who will be making her third NCAA Championship appearance, led the charge offensively with four goals. Alexis Wieseler and Julia Kirkland added a hat trick apiece in the victory for UCSD.
