Women’s water polo trio headed to World University Games


Pallavi Menon was one of three Stanford water polo players selected to play for U.S. at the World University Games in China.

The national champion Stanford women’s water polo team will have three representatives at next month’s World University Games, USA Water Polo announced last week. Senior drivers Alyssa Lo and Pallavi Menon will join goalkeeper Amber Oland ’11 on the American roster for the tournament, which is set for Aug. 11-23 in Shenzhen, China.

The U.S. will start the games in Group B with Australia, France, Russia and Mexico, taking on the Aussies in its first match on Aug. 12.

Oland played 20 games in her final season with Stanford, posting a 4.96 goals-against average and making her way onto the All-MPSF second team.

Lo and Menon were both massive contributors throughout Stanford’s championship season. Lo’s 42 goals were third best on the team and earned her an All-MPSF honorable mention, while Menon’s 34 were fifth on the Cardinal.
