Köhli established a new IU single-season record as a sophomore, scoring 80 goals for the IU water polo team.
Water polo is a sport that is not common among many Hoosiers, but despite that, the Hoosiers still have a strong program, and many of the water polo players spend their summers conditioning for the regular season.
The IU women’s water polo team has been ready for its 16 potential road trips this season, and for sophomore Jakie Köhli, the trips have been part of daily life at IU.
The fourth-seeded Hoosiers will take on fifth-seeded Brown University at 1:30 p.m. Friday at Harvard University’s Blodgett Pool. The Hoosiers beat Brown 9-8 earlier this season in the Aztec Invitational in San Diego.
Hoping to have more success than the first time it played at home, the IU water polo team will host the Collegiate Water Polo Association Western Division Championships this weekend.
Three women – Maryann Lekas, Amy Pankoke and Natasha Kuberski – came together in spring 1994 to form the women’s water polo club.
