Water polo game postponed after technical difficulties

The women’s water polo game against Redlands on Wednesday was canceled due to an unknown power surge at the La Verne Aquatic Center. 

The game has been postponed but the rescheduled date has not yet been announced. This would have been the Leopards’ first Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference game of the season. 

Five minutes before the game the table officials announced that they had lost power, head coach Pat Beemer said. 

“What appeared to happen was maybe some kind of power surge, that fried every bit of electronics we had,” Beemer said. 

Both teams were in starting position and returned to warmups as officials tried to resolve the issue.

After over an hour of trying to turn the power back on the decision was made to postpone the game. 

La Verne will next host the Whittier Poets on Wednesday. The Leopards stand at 4-2 overall. The Poets are 1-0 in SCIAC and 2-3 overall.
