BERKELEY – The No. 4 Cal women’s water polo team swept this week’s MPSF/KAP 7 awards, with junior Victoria Williams earning Player of the Week honors and freshman Dora Antal earning the Newcomer of the Week nod for the second time in three weeks.
Williams scored 11 goals in helping the Bears go 4-0 at last weekend’s UC Santa Barbara Invitational. She tallied five goals in a 30-1 victory over Fresno Pacific and shared team-high honors with Antal during a 13-6 win over No. 10 Long Beach State. It is the first weekly honor in Williams’ career.

Antal also earned the MPSF/KAP 7 Newcomer of the Week Award following the first week of the season.
The Bears (6-0) travel this weekend to the Stanford Invitational, where all eight teams in the field reside in the latest CWPA Top 20.
