After a disappointing loss on Saturday, the women’s water polo team fought hard on Sunday to end their four-game series at the Red Fox Invitational at Marist on a high note, finishing the weekend 3–1. On Saturday, Brown beat Siena, 13–8, but lost to Marist, 12–10, later in the day. The Bears rallied to win both of their games on Sunday, 8–7 and 14–3, over Iona and St. Francis, respectively.

“The energy was there, but there were some communication errors” in the game against Marist, said tri-captain Lauren Presant ’10. “We had some problems converting in man-up situations.”

Despite being upset by the loss, the team is looking at it as an opportunity to improve before the Bears travel to California over spring break.

“We learned a lot in the game against Marist,” Presant said. “Everyone learned they have to work on something. The first step is to learn your weaknesses, the second step is to remedy them.”

Tri-captain Sarah Glick ’10 said she was excited by the team’s ability to bounce back Sunday. Saturday “was a little upsetting because we didn’t play very well, but the fact that we were able to get over that and come back to win both games (Sunday) means we still have a chance of winning the Eastern championships.”
