Senior center Clint Freeman of the University of Redlands water polo team has been named the SCIAC Male Athlete of the Week for Sept. 2-8.

During the men’s water polo team’s opening weekend of competition, Freeman led the Bulldogs to a shocking upset of No. 12 Air Force at the UCSD Triton Invitational.  En route to the 12-11 overtime win, he registered six goals, one assist, four steals, and three ejections-drawn.  He scored the game-winner with just 1:17 left in the extra period.

Throughout the weekend, Freeman racked up 13 goals, five steals, four ejections-drawn, and one assist, as the Bulldogs gained solid experience against No. 1 USC, No. 4 UC Berkeley, No. 11 UCSD, and Air Force.

Junior volleyball player Kylie McLogan of Cal Lutheran was the SCIAC Female Athlete of the Week honor. She is a graduate of Upland High School.
