Stanford women’s water polo freshman driver Anna Yelizarova was named the KAP 7 MPSF Newcomer of the Week, officially announced by the conference on Monday night.
Yelizarova reeled off 10 goals during the No. 6 Cardinal’s 3-0 run this past weekend, capturing its fourth consecutive Stanford Invitational victory. The Canadian Senior National Team member recorded a hat trick or better in two of the three games. Against No. 8 San Jose State on Saturday, Yelizarova found the back of the net five times and then followed up that performance with a three-goal effort against No. 3 UCLA on Sunday afternoon.
Helping the Cardinal to a perfect 8-0 start on the season, Yelizarova is currently tied with senior Melissa Seidemann as the team’s co-leader in goals scored (22).
