GW Women's Water Polo Announces 2013 Schedule
Four Tournaments Highlight Spring Slate
Jan. 4, 2013
WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's water polo team will take part in four tournaments and host three matches as part of a 27-game regular-season schedule, 14th-year head coach Scott Reed announced today.
The Colonials will be tested from the start, as they open the season at the Princeton Invitational (Feb. 9-10) against California, which ended last season ranked fourth nationally. Host Princeton, whom GW will face on the second day of the tournament, was ranked 10th in the final poll.
"This is probably one of our most difficult schedules to date," Coach Reed said. "Starting off the season against Cal will be the first of many challenges the team will face this season."
The Princeton Invite is the first of three straight tournaments for GW to begin the 2013 campaign, as the Colonials will also take part in the Bison Invitational hosted by Bucknell (Feb. 16-17) and the CWPA/MAAC Crossover hosted by Villanova (Feb. 23-24).
The Colonials will take on CWPA Southern Division rivals Brown, Bucknell and Mercyhurst March 2-3 in Erie, Pa., before their first home match against defending CWPA Eastern champion Princeton on March 8.
GW then makes its annual trip out west for seven games in California (March 13-16), concluding with the Lancer Invite hosted by California Baptist March 15-16.
The Colonials welcome Villanova to the Charles E. Smith Center Pool on March 23, before heading back to Princeton to face VMI and Southern Division foe Harvard on April 6. GW wraps up the regular season at home against VMI on April 20.
The 2013 CWPA Southern Division Championship is slated for April 13-14 in Providence, R.I., while the Eastern Championship will take place April 26-28 in Ann Arbor, Mich.
The Colonials return 11 letterwinners from the 2012 squad, which finished 12-15 overall and placed fifth at the Southern Division Championship and ninth at the Eastern Championship.
