In the 2017-2018 season, UC San Diego went undefeated 10-0 and went on to represent the Southwest Division at the CWPA Club National Championships. As an expanding program the Tritons added a second team last year and are open to all skill levels. Each player contributes an even amount of skill and drive, so the team works extremely well together in executing a powerful offense and defense. This year, the Tritons are lead by Kinsey Van Dynze (Captain) and McKenzie Hardy (Captain), while Amanda Duval, Lian Lumada, Camerin Cunningham, Cathleen Nguyen, Clara Woods, Gretta Musayelyan, Jordan Saalfeld, Natalie Le, Nelly El-Sakkary, Sandhya Sriram, Amy Ly, Sara Tran, Jenna MacAulay, Jenny Fisher, Emily Paz, Laurel Jackson, Lauren Brown and Shannon O’shea return to hold down a strong offensive and defensive line.
