BAKERSFIELD, Calif.--The Bakersfield water polo team travels to the Cal Baptist Mini Saturday.

The Roadrunners (2-6) play Claremont Mudd Scripps (0-2) at 10:30 a.m. The Athenas are ranked No. 1 in the current CWPA Division III Top 10 poll. Bakersfield plays No. 9 San Diego State (0-0) at 4:30 p.m. The 'Runners are coming off a 1-3 performance at the UC Santa Barbara Invitational last weekend.

"Defense needs to continue to be our focus this weekend," said Bakersfield head coach Jason Gall. "If we are going to compete with the top teams, we need to keep the scores low.   We still may be out a couple players this weekend but that doesn't change our expectations. We are excited about competing again this weekend and hopefully picking up a couple wins."
