The Saddleback aquatics program was back in the news this week when the aquatics office announced that another member of the women's water polo team has signed a letter-of-intent. Gaucho Hylah Prussak will follow teammate Maddie Choi to Ottawa University in Arizona.
Prussak wore a few different hats for Saddleback, playing water polo in both the 2016 and 2018 seasons while swimming for the Gauchos as a part of the swim program. In addition, she played softball for the Gauchos during the 2018 campaign.
Prussak finished up the 2018 campaign in water polo with 54 goals and 59 assists in finishing second on the team in scoring. In addition, she led the team in steals (100) and was second in blocks (10). Prussak's biggest game of the season came against Santa Rosa Junior College when she netted six goals in a 14-8 win over the Bear Cubs.
Prussak signed at Ottawa University, located in Surprise, Arizona. Ottawa is a new program that will play under the NAIA umbrella this fall as an independent.
