Jan. 10, 2013
LOS ANGELES -- With the 2013 season just over a week away, Lions' All-Access continues its Inside the Lions look at the LMU women's water polo team as it prepares to defend its 2012 conference title. Up next is junior Kassandra Smith.
Since she can remember, Smith has been in the water. From swimming then on to water polo, she has spent most of her days in the pool. Along with a life in the water, LMU has been in her life about as long. Following both her parents, who are graduates of LMU, Smith now enters her third season with the Lions.
As a sophomore Smith's playing time nearly doubled, earning valuable minutes in the WWPA Championships and in the NCAA tournament. With a young squad, her playing experience will be key to the Lions upcoming season.
Check out the entire interview on Lions' All-Access.
LMU will open their season on Saturday, Jan. 19 when they host the LMU Opening Weekend Tournament. They will face Cal Baptist at 10:30 a.m., before playing Cal State San Bernardino (12 noon) and Cal Baptist (3 pm) in exhibition games later in the day. The special Season Ticket Scarf is available for the Lions' 2013 season, visit LMU Tickets for more information.
