LA JOLLA, Calif. - UC San Diego two-meter defender Alexis Wieseler, set the tone for freshman in the Western Water Polo Association (WWPA) over the weekend, as she did more than play defense for the Tritons, earning KAP7 WWPA Player of the Week honors, it was announced Thursday.

The Highland native led UCSD to a big conference win over rival Loyola Marymount Friday evening. She scored a career-high seven goals to lead the 17th-ranked Tritons to an 11-10 victory over 13th-ranked LMU. The win kept UCSD undefeated in WWPA play at 3-0.

As the primary two-meter defender, Wieseler returned to the pool Sunday and scored a team-high three goals against No. 7 UC Irvine, adding two field blocks on defense.

The freshman is now second on the team with 25 goals, as she leads in field blocks with nine on the season.

Wieseler also received UC San Diego Athlete of the Week honors on Mar. 4 for her success in the pool.

This is the second time this season a member of the Triton water polo team has earned conference honors, as Sarah Lizotte was named Player of the Week on Jan. 30.

The Tritons play in the Claremont Convergence tournement hosted by Claremont MnKenna, Pomona-Pitzer and University of La Verne this Friday, Mar. 8 and Saturday, Mar. 9.
