BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Senior Beth Jay scored a hat trick in a 6-4 win over 11th-ranked UC San Diego while teammate Brittany Russell matched the feat in a 12-3 victory over host Roadrunners as UC Davis women's water polo captured a pair of victories over conference opponents at Cal St. Bakersfield Saturday.

The Aggies, ranked 15th in the nation in last week's U.S. Water Polo poll, improves to 16-10 on the season.

UC Davis jumped out to early leads in both games, taking a 4-2 lead over the Tritons after the first quarter of play. Kristin Pfaff, Alli Johnstone and Alia Hansen each had goals in the day's opener.

Against CSUB, the Aggies exploded for three goals in the first two minutes of play, then extended that lead to 5-1 after one quarter and a 7-2 advantage at halftime. Johnstone, Melissa Agee and Nicole Lorrimer each added a pair of goals over the 'Runners.

Kelsey Whalen recorded four saves in net against UCSD, then had two saves, two assists and two steals in just one half of action against CSUB.

The Aggies return home for games against Pacific and UC Santa Cruz on April 18 and 19.
