RAINBOW WAHINE (0-0) The No. 4 Cal women’s water polo will play four top-10 teams this weekend when it travels to the South Bay to participate in the Stanford Invitational. In addition to playing No. 13 Indiana, No. 2 UCLA and No. 8 Hawaii in bracket play, the Bears potentially could play No. 1 Stanford in the championship match on Sunday. BEAR NECESSITIES: CAL'S TOP STORYLINES, STREAKS & TRENDS SIX MATCHES OF DOMINANCE CORSO CLOSES IN ON 200 WINS The Bears enter the weekend having played six matches on the season and they have completely dominated their competiton. Cal is outscoring its opponents 112-26, resulting in an average margin of victory of 18.4. The Bears have reached the 20-goal mark three times in a game. Cal head coach Richard Corso enters the weekend with a career record of 192-79, putting him just eight victories short of the 200-win mark for his career. Corso, who is in his 10th year in Berkeley, was the head coach of the 1996 U.S. Olympic Men’s Water Polo Team. He’s led the Bears to the NCAA Championships in three of the past five seasons, including the championship match in 2011. ALL-AMERICAN TRIO It’s no surprise that the bulk of Cal’s scoring so far has come from three sophomores that each earned All-American honors last season. Dora Antal, who was a First Team All-American in 2014 and the MPSF Newcomer of the Year, leads the way with 23 goals. Anna Illes, meanwhile, is second on the team with 16 goals after earning All-American honorable mention in 2014. Fellow 2014 All-American honorable mention pick Roser Tarrago has netted 12 goals so far. Last season, the All-American trio combined for 172 goals and 49.7 percent of the team’s scoring. MADDY MAKES HER MARK Just six matches into her sophomore season, goalkeeper Madeline Trabucco is already making a dent in the Cal record books. Trabucco earned the starting job to begin her freshman season and already has 207 saves in her career, which puts her in sixth place on Cal’s all-time list. Trabucco has 28 saves so far this season. VIC’S VIEW Senior Victoria Williams takes readers inside Cal’s program this season with her weekly blog, “Vic’s View” on CalBears.com. Each week, Williams will report on all things Bears taking place in and out of Spieker Pool. ABOUT THE STANFORD INVITATIONAL Annually one of the most competitive tournaments in the nation, this year’s edition of the Stanford Invitational features eight teams, all ranked in this week’s CWPA Top-20.
