The season of much improved and #3 seed VMI came to an effective end on Saturday as second seeded Marist earned an 11-7 victory over the upstarts in the MAAC Women’s Water Polo Championships semi-final. Marist will face Wagner in a repeat of last season’s title game, which the Seahawks won to earn a spot in the NCAA Championship field.
VMI will play Iona on Sunday in hopes of finishing its most successful season ever in third position in the MAAC. The Keydets earned their first ever top-25 ranking by the CWPA in week 14 of the season. A win versus the Gaels on Sunday would be the team’s 23rd, its most ever. It is the first season that the team has won more than 20 games.
