Irvine, Calif. - Cal State Northridge junior goalkeeper Dana Harvey, UC Davis sophomore Carmen Eggert and UC Irvine senior Caitlin Haskell were selected Big West Women's Water Polo Tri-Players of the Week in helping their teams to conference success.

Harvey collected 17 saves in a narrow 8-7 victory against the Gauchos. Both teams entered the match tied for first place in the Big West. Cal State Northridge is now 3-0 while the Gauchos are 2-1.
Harvey has collected ten or more saves in three games this year including a career-high 21 saves against 13th-ranked Indiana (1/22/11) at the Michigan Invitational. Her season total of 162 saves (10.45 spg) is third-best in the Big West Conference.
Eggert scored seven of her team's 16 goals as UC Davis split a pair of conference matches against UC Irvine and Long Beach State. In a 9-7 loss to the Anteaters, Eggert tallied four goals. She tallied a hat trick in a 9-7 overtime victory against the 49ers, including a goal in each of the two three-minute overtime sessions.
Haskell notched a pair of goals in both road victories over UC Davis and Pacific, propelling UC Irvine to a 2-0 start in Big West play. She notched an insurance goal against the Aggies to preserve the 9-7 victory. Haskell provided three assists and two steals to further the Anteater cause for the week.
