IRVINE, Calif. -- Women's water polo player Annika Nelson has been named Buffalo Wild Wings Anteater of the Week after a stellar performance against UC Davis.
The senior recorded a season-high 12 saves in an 8-2 victory over the 13th- ranked Aggies. The senior stopped a penalty shot in the opening of the fourth quarter, holding UCD scoreless in the final period.
Nelson and the Anteater defense helped UCI extended their winning streak to 10 in a row, which is a new school.
The Anteaters are 19-6 overall and are undefeated in Big West games at 4-0.
UCI will travel to No. 12 Long Beach State on Thursday (Apr. 20) for a 7:00 p.m. game then return home for the regular season finale against Loyola Marymount Friday (Apr. 21) at 7:00 p.m. at the Anteater Aquatics Complex.
