The No. 4 Cal women's water polo team finished fourth at last weekend's UC Santa Barbara Invitational.

For the Bears (5-4), the fourth-place finished marked their second straight tournament of the season.

Cal split four games over the weekend, defeating UC Irvine and San Jose State while falling to Stanford and USC.

Sunday's action saw Cal drop its games with the Cardinal and Trojans. Both games finished in 9-4 defeats for the Bears.

Against the Card, Cal got a hat trick from sophomore Lindy Spieker and a goal from freshman Cara Chlebicki. In the USC game, the Bears got contributions from Ericka Lorenz (three goals) and Julia Cesnik.

Saturday was the reverse of Sunday as Cal dominated in its first two games of the competition. In their 12-4 victory over the Anteaters, the Bears had 11 different goal scorers with Chlebicki leading the way with two.

Against the Spartans, Cal had four players score two goals (Cesnik, Lorenz, Courtney Devenish and Julie Arnold).

The Bears now return to Berkeley this Friday for their home opener against Hawaii at 4 p.m.

Golf Ties For Sixth In Hawaii

The Cal men's golf team finished tied sixth at the John Burns Intercollegiate in Wahiawa, Hawaii, and was led by a Bear making a return to familiar surroundings.

Scott Carlyle, who transferred to Cal from Hawaii finished tied for second at the tournament which wrapped up last Friday at Leleihua Golf Course.

Carlyle's three-round 209 tied him with the Warriors Matthew Kodama and was two strokes behind winner John Lieber of San Diego State. Kevin Haefner of Auburn (210) and Clark Corbett of UNLV (211) rounded out the top five.

On the strength of an opening -round 274, the Aztecs also claimed the team title with an 11-under par score of 853. SDSU shot a final round 284-the day's best total. The score assured that the Aztecs would finish comfortably ahead of Auburn, which finished second at 862. They were the only teams to finish under par for the 54-hole tournament.

The Bears were 14-over par at 878, tied with Arizona. UNLV and New Mexico tied for fourth, four strokes ahead. Host Hawaii checked in 11th.

Cal begins the next week in Los Angeles, when it will take part in the Southwestern Intercollegiate March 4-5.
