    Bloomington, Ind.
    No. 11 Indiana Finishes Home Meet with a Splash
    The No. 11 Indiana water polo team finished their first home tournament of the season with a giant 15-1 win over Washington and Jefferson at the Councilman-Billingsley Aquatic Center. Ten different Hoosiers scored goals and eight tallied at least one assist.

    KOHLI CONTINUES TO MOVE UP
    A year off recovering from shoulder surgery hasn't slowed down redshirt senior and two-time all American Jakie Kohli. Almost no time was lost before Kohli scored the first goal of the season for Indiana in the Michigan Kick-Off.

    With 55 goals on the season thus far, Kohli has now moved up into second place on the career goals scored list at IU with 231, surpasssing Krista Peterson with 224. Kohli only needs 16 more before she moves into first place currently held by Kristin Stanford who has 246.

    Kohli scored 80 goals in her junor season alone (a then single-season record) and still holds the single-game record, along with six other Hoosiers, for six goals scored in one match. Head coach Barry King thinks the IU career scoring record is well within Kohli's reach.

    After the Stanford Invitational, where she recorded 10 more steals, Kohli also moved up to second on IU's all-time career steals list with 263, surpassing Molly Fonner with 232. First place on the list is stll held soundly by Deb Simone with 326.

    ANCHORING THE D
    Freshman Jessica Gaudreault was named the starting goalkeeper for Indiana this season. She has 155 saves on her 22 matches played this season. She was named co-defesnive player of the week for the CWPA alongside teammate Mary Campbell for the week of Feb. 18-24.

    One of her best games of the season came against 10th ranked Princeton. Gaudreault was like a brick wall against the Tigers' offense, tallying up 12 saves and only allowing two goals on 24 shot attempts. She had eight saves, tying her previous career high, in the first half alone.

    Gaudreault continued to ride that momentum in the Hoosiers first home meet against No. 9 Long Beach State. Playing with her newly found confidence, Gaudreault finished the match with 13 saves, which is her current career high, 10 coming from the first half.

    Gaudreault was key in the Hoosiers 8-6 victory over No. 8 Hawaii. Despite a season high 34 shots taken against Gaudreault, several coming in the last two minutes alone, Jessica held off the Warriors come-back attempt, sealing Indiana's biggest win of the season.

    Gaudreault competed in the FINA Wold Youth Water Polo Championships in Perth, Australia for Team Canada this December.

    GERRITY FITS RIGHT IN
    University of Maryland transfer Rebecca Gerrity has had no trouble fitting in with the Indiana offense in her first season as a Hoosier. Gerrity had six goals for IU in her first tournament in Ann Arbor, including a huge showing against Colorado State, where she had four goals on only five shot attempts.

    Gerrity's four goals against CSU was a new colligate career high for her. Her previous career high was three goals against Sonoma State March 22, 2012, as a Terrapin.

    Becca started her first tournament in the Bison Invitational and anchored the Hoosiers on offense all weekend. She had seven goals during the tournament, including two against the highly touted Princeton goalie. Gerrity is third on the team in goals scored this season with 30, coming behind Jakie Kohli who has 55, and Shae Fournier who has 52.

    Gerrity joins the IU team from the Terrapins where she played in all 26 games as a reserve last year, ranked fourth on the team in shooting percentage (.405), fourth on the team in steals (31) and seventh in goals (17).

    FANTASTIC FOURNIER
    Junior Shae Founrier is quickly becoming one of the most well-rounded water polo players in the conference. She leads the team in every statistical categor except goals scored, where she is three behind senior Jakie Kohli. In the Hoosiers match against Notre Dame College, Fournier tied the Indiana single-game record by scoring six points in a single game.

    Fournier leads the team in assists with 32, steals and field blocks by a staggering margin with 52 and 26 thus far. No other player is within five on either category. Shae is also a close second in goals scored on the season with 52, just three behind tam leader Jakie Kohli.

    Last year, Shae Fournier put together one of the most productive seasons in program history headlined by a single-season school record of 95 goals. She also finished the season with team-highs of 86 steals and 95 field blocks, to go along with 41 assists. She recorded 29 multi-goal games, including 10 contests with at least four scores.

    SCHROEDER IN THE MIDDLE
    Center Candyce Schroeder was the only freshman to start for the Hoosiers on offense this season, doing her best to hold down the middle for IU.

    The San Clemente, Calif. native had a great debut for Indiana, scoring three goals at the Michigan Kick-Off and forcing several turnovers on defense.

    Coming back from a hand injury that left her sidelined at the Stanford Invite, Schroeder put up big offensive numbers during the Bison Invitational in Lewisburg, Penn. She scored a career high three goals against Wagner. She added two more goals in Indiana's Fluid Four the very next weekend.

    Shoroeder scored one of her biggest goals in Indiana's overtime win over Cal Baptist. With an impressive behind-the-back throw, Schroeder sealed the win for the Hoosiers and kept Indiana's undefeated streak alve out west.

    Schroeder helped lead San Clemente High School to the 2011 CIF Championship while earning CIF Player of the Year honors in the process. She was also named League MVP and Second Team All-County.

    DISHING THE ROCK
    Sophomore Colleen McNaught made a habit of finding open teammates in position to score during her debut season in 2012. The Dana Hills, Calif. native paced the team with 51 assists, which is third on the IU all-time single-season assists list. Brooke Zimmerman holds the school record with 56 helpers in 2008.

    McNaught also tied the reocrd for most assists in a single game with 5. McNaught has started every game for the Hoosiers thus far in the 2013 season and has 24 goals, 32 assists, 24 steals, and 10 field blocks so far. Her 32 assists tie her with Shae Fournier for most assists on the season thus far.

    McNaught won CWPA Player of the Week from the Conference for the week of March 11-17. McNaught stole the show at the Aztec Invitational and the Lancer Invite where she finished the weekend with nine goals, 11 assists, and nine steals.

    CAMPBELL EARNS HONORS
    Reserve goalie Mary Campbell earned co-defesnive player of the week honors from the CWPA for her outstanding performace against Washington and Jefferson during the week of Feb. 18-24. In just her second start of the season Campbell recorded a career high 13 saves on 22 shot attempts, only allowing one goal for the Presidents the entire match.

    She earned Rookie of the Week from the CWPA for her career setting match of the year against Michigan on March 30th. Campbell didn't show any nerves after getting the start against the Wolverines. She had a new career high 15 saves on 30 shot attempts. Her 15 saves are the most this season for any Indiana goalie. In her 13 games and 275 minutes played, Campbell has earned 80 saves and only allowed 58 goals against.
