Water Polo Hosts East Meets West Tournament
Oct. 24, 2003
The Air Force water polo team enters its mid-season mark in full stride as it prepares to host its annual "East Meets West" Tournament, Oct. 25-26. The Falcons are currently 9-8 overall on the season and 7-1 in the Western Water Polo Association. Air Force posted a 4-0 record during last year's tournament, with wins over UC Santa Cruz (16-7), UC Davis (12-7), George Washington (12-7), and Cal Baptist (8-7) for a perfect weekend. The Falcons are looking for a repeat against this season's opponents with Cal Baptist and George Washington returning. Air Force also welcomes Iona College and Chapman University this year. The Falcons dropped a match earlier this season to Iona, 7-3, at Princeton's North/South Invitational and fell against the Gaels last season at Princeton, 12-10. Air Force is definitely looking for revenge with the home-field advantage. Air Force went 1-0 against Cal Baptist and George Washington in 2002-03.
