Harvey Notches Hat Trick Against No. 6 California
UC Davis junior Hannah Harvey (Clovis, Calif./Clovis HS) had an outstanding offensive performance in the Aggies’ 8-6 win last weekend to earn the Big West Women’s Water Polo Player of the Week award, the first of her career.
The utility player notched a hat trick on Saturday versus No. 6 California to lead Davis to its first-ever win in its varsity history over the Golden Bears (29 previous meetings).
With an assist in addition to her three-score outing, Harvey had a hand in half of the Aggies’ eight-goal performance. The junior scored on a lob in the first quarter, hit a second-chance goal after her steal put an end to a Cal counterattack to open the second quarter and put away the game-winner with 5:18 left in the fourth.
Harvey now has 27 scores in her career with the Aggies, exceeding the combined total for her first two seasons.
