INSIDE THE LIONS: A Season to Celebrate Family
Lions' All-Access feature Inside the Lions Spotlight on women's water polo senior Jessica Morelos.
Dec. 24, 2012
LOS ANGELES -- The holiday season is about family, and its fitting that the next Inside the Lions Spotlight features LMU women's water polo senior Jessica Morelos, who says she has been shaped by her family, both at home and in the pool. Lions' All-Access continues its inside look at this year's women's water polo team with the third of three seniors on this year's squad.
From the beginning, family has helped her in and out of the water. From her sisters who helped her get started in the sport of water polo, to the many teammates that have pushed her to go farther than she thought, Morelos says it is those relationships that have made her experience so special.
The national all-academic selection has been an anchor for the Lions at two-meter and she enters her fourth season after a record-setting junior campaign. She had career-bests in nearly every category, including 29 goals and 31 kick outs drawn.
With that experience, she will be a leader on the young Lions' team. 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.
