Hoosiers finish 5th in Eastern Championships

Although it won two of three games this weekend, the IU water polo team finished in fifth place at the Collegiate Water Polo Association’s Eastern Championship in Cambridge, Mass.

The fourth-seeded Hoosiers tallied their only loss of the weekend Friday afternoon against No. 5 Brown in an 8-7 finish. The Hoosiers trailed throughout the game, but rallied in the fourth period and came up just short.  

The loss eliminated IU from contention for the Eastern Championship and a shot at the NCAA tournament.  

On Saturday, the Hoosiers took on No. 8 Harvard and defeated the host team in a 9-7 game thanks to a late goal by sophomore Lauren Wyckoff.  

The Hoosiers finished the weekend by winning the fifth-place game against No. 7 Princeton Sunday. They cruised to an 11-6 victory after a quick start, outscoring Princeton 8-1 in the first half.

The tournament marked the end of the Hoosiers’ season. They finished with an overall record of 21-16.
