Arizona State lacrosse (8-4, 5-3 Pac-12) ended its short losing streak on Sunday. The Sun Devil stood tall in the team’s 11-7 win over Cal (2-13, 0-9).

Cal quickly scored three goals to open the contest. However, for the final 40 minutes, the Golden Bears were held to four scores the rest of the way. Arizona State goalkeeper Berkeley Bonneau had seven saves in the win. The defense also forced 21 Cal turnovers.

Carley Adams had three goals - her eighth hat trick of the season. Emily Glagolev also recorded her 100th career assist - the first Sun Devil to ever reach that mark.

The Sun Devils host USC, a team they already have beaten this season, on Friday, April 23 on 3 p.m. local time.

No. 20 Arizona State beach volleyball (9-9, 3-6 Pac-12) beat Boise State (6-11) 4-1 on Sunday for its second victory over the Broncos this past weekend.

Water Polo

No. 5 Arizona State water polo (12-9, 6-6 MPSF) was swept by top-ranked USC (16-0, 10-0) in the final weekend of the regular season.

On Saturday, the Trojans won 10-7. The two teams kept the contest close throughout. Bente Rogge scored a goal late in the third period to close the gap to one heading into the final 10 minutes.

USC’s Mireia Guiral and Maud Megens rushed out with a pair of fourth-period goals and the Trojan defense kept Arizona State off the board until the game was already decided.

Sunday’s match was more about runs, and USC made more of them on its way to an 11-8 victory. The Trojans scored three to start the match, and the Sun Devils answered back with three themselves. Then USC countered with a trio as well.

After the team’s traded one goal each, the Trojans held onto a three-goal lead going into halftime. That never wavered in the second half on USC’s way to a win.

Arizona State’s next scheduled match is the ultra competitive Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships starting on April 30.

Men’s Golf

Arizona State men’s golf finished second at the Thunderbird Collegiate tournament behind a marvelous final day.

The Sun Devils moved up four spots on the leaderboard with a -30 total score and a -11 third round. TCU was able to hold off the comeback and hang onto its lead.

David Puig led the way for ASU. He shot a -10 in the tournament and finished tied for sixth as an individual. Ryggs Johnston placed tied for 11th, much in part to his 66 that he shot in round three and closed the tournament out at -8.

The Sun Devils now head to Santa Rosa, Calif. for the Pac-12 Championships starting on Monday, April 26.

Men’s Tennis

No. 23 Arizona (18-8, 5-2 Pac-12) spoiled senior day for four Arizona State’s (14-7, 3-4) veterans on Saturday. The Wildcats swept the Sun Devils 4-0 in the regular season finale.

Despite a win from Max McKennon and Christian Lerby, Arizona started the day with the doubles point.

Wildcats Herman Hoeyeraal and Gustaf Strom won in two sets on courts one and six to set their team up well. While the other four singles matches went to a third set, Arizona’s Jonas Ziverts secured the win on court two.

Arizona State will head to San Diego for the Pac-12 Championships on Friday, April 23.

Women’s Tennis

On Saturday, No. 33 Arizona State women’s tennis (13-7, 6-3 Pac-12) swept Arizona (13-11, 2-8) 4-0 to finish the regular season.

Marianna Argyrokastriti swept Gitte Heynemans on court five in her singles match. John-Baptiste and Morlet also won in two sets to clinch the match-winning points.
