It’s that time of year again. Winter quarter is over; the depressing rainy season is behind us, and ahead lies a lush and sunny spring. For athletes, spring break was filled with the spirit of competition. Teams fought against their opponents, representing Santa Cruz hard.

Over the break, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s water polo, men’s baseball and other teams suited up and played under the sun.

In the fray of all the matches, UCSC teams experienced both ups and downs.

Women’s tennis took one win away out of six total matches.

Women’s water polo hit a rough patch, losing both their matches in Davis against Davis and Harvard. Senior striker Annie Keating is optimistic for the beginning of spring.

“We’ve been training all break, so we are more focused for this weekend rather than those games [during break] which weren’t in our division,” she said.

Men’s tennis and men’s baseball are sitting pretty with winning records so far, and men’s volleyball awaits a game against rival Santa Clara this weekend, after an impressive four-game winning streak at a March tournament.

Men’s tennis took four wins out of five matches, blowing out the University of La Verne 9-0 in a particularly well-fought match. Men’s baseball is currently ranked No.1 in their division and undefeated after winning all five of their games against Berkeley and the University of Seattle.
