Zyania Morales (SCIAC Athlete of the Week)

WHITTIER, Calif. – Senior Attacker Zyania Morales (Commerce, Calif.) was just named the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Athlete of the Week for the Week of April 17. 

Zyania is the third Poet to earn this recognition this year for Women's Water Polo.  Isabella Gorrocino (East Los Angeles, Calif.) was named SCIAC Athlete of the Week back on March 6 and March 27.

Morales helped the Whittier College Women's Water Polo to yet another undefeated week. This past week the Purple & Gold took out Chapman University (13-6) and Occidental College (14-7). With the win, the Poets keep their winning streak intact at seven games and has kept their Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) winning streak together at 19 games, which spans to last year from the 2015-16 season when they won the SCIAC Championship Title. During the two games Zyania totaled eight goals with three coming against the Panthers and five against the Tigers.
