WHITTIER, Calif. – The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) announced their Athletes of the Week Tuesday and freshman Teresa Marchetti (Messina, Italy) was named the Offensive Athlete of the Week for Women's Water Polo in the eighth week of voting.
The Purple & Gold have now had three players recognized this year as Athletes of the Week. Sawyer Bellville (Chino, Calif.) was recognized last week and Anastacia Gonzalez (Montebello, Calif.) back on March 4.
Marchetti led Whittier to a 2-1 week that saw the Poets defeat Chapman, 18-10 and Redlands, 10-5, before falling to Brown, 11-6. Marchetti combined for eight goals over the three games. She had five against Chapman, two against Redlands and one against Brown.
