Iona College women's water polo head coach Brian Kelly has named the duo of senior Alyssa Turza and junior Amy Olsen captains for the 2013 Gaels.
Turza finished last season with 70 goals and enters her final season in Maroon and Gold with 164 career tallies. Turza was named Most Outstanding Player at the 2012 MAAC Championship after her six goals and one assist helped the Gaels clinched their second straight MAAC title. Turza continued her hot play at the NCAA Championship, where she scored five goals.
Olsen scored 84 goals in 2012, earning First Team All-MAAC honors, her second straight All-MAAC recognition. Her 15 assists in 2012 pushed her overall point total to 99. Olsen also finished with a team high 78 steals and 67 kickouts drawn a year ago.
Iona begins its quest for a three-peat Saturday, Feb. 2 when it takes on Harvard (8:00 am) and Villanova (2:45 pm) at the Harvard Invitational in Cambridge, MA.
