The SDSU men’s water polo team built upon it’s unblemished record this season by picking up another three wins this weekend (10/18-10/19) at UCSD’s Canyonview Pool. Each win was a decisive victory and over within a half.
The Aztecs took on UCSB’s “A” squad to start the weekend and dispatched them 16-3. Next, SDSU matched up with cross town rival USD who took a year hiatus from the water polo scene in 2013. Similar to UCSB, this contest was over before it started as SDSU cruised to a 17-2 victory. The last game of the tournament saw the Aztecs take on a developing and short-handed CSU Northridge team. CSUN is in their second year in existence as a recognized club water polo team and was consequently blown out of the water 22-3. With their three wins, the Aztecs improve to 6-0 on the year, a new club record.
SDSU will face #1 ranked UCLA next weekend (10/25) at UCLA in what should be the best two teams fighting for the No.1 conference seed. It will be a rematch of the 2013 conference championship in which SDSU dropped an electrifying 10-7 contest. If you happen to be in the LA area next weekend, come out and support your Aztecs men’s club water polo.

- A perennial dark horse in the Pacific Coast Conference, UCSB’s loss to SDSU is a testament to how far the Aztecs have come in such a short time frame.
- 2013 National Champion UCLA dropped a contest to Cal Poly SLO over the weekend. However, SLO barely edged UCSB “A”, who SDSU handily beat 16-3. The Aztecs lost to Cal Poly 10-7 last year and will not match up with them in the regular season this year.
- SDSU was ranked 2nd nationally since the Club polls were updated last on October 2nd. It is safe to assume that they will remain there or even claim 1st with the UCLA loss.
