SAN DIEGO, Calif. - UC San Diego women's water polo utility player Sarah Lizotte was named a San Diego Hall of Champions Star of the Month for her success in the pool during the month of April.

“I’m so proud of Sarah’s continued growth as both a person and a student-athlete,” said UCSD head coach Brad Kreutzkamp. “She is a leader in the water and out. This Hall of Champions award is a huge nod to all of her accomplishments.”

Lizotte, the 2013 Western Water Polo Association (WWPA) Player of the Year, helped lead the Tritons to an 11-1 record in April.

UCSD upset perennial champion Loyola Marymount in the WWPA Tournament title game to earn its second league crown in three years and advance to the NCAA Championships. Lizotte, a junior, received all-tournament first team recognition after posting four goals over three victories during the tourney.

The Riverside native has recorded three or more goals on 15 different occasions, totaling a team-high 83 so far this season.

A complete list of the April Stars of the Month can be found here.

The Hall of Champions, located in San Diego's Balboa Park, stemmed from the concept of the Breitbard Athletic Foundation. The Breitbard Athletic Foundation was founded in 1946 to promote educational work, to encourage competition and to recognize significant athletic achievements in San Diego.

UCSD (25-12) earned the fifth-seed in the NCAA Championships and will face fourth-seeded Hawaii (21-9) in the first round of play on Friday, May 10 in Boston.
