Senior Matt Vowell helped lead men’s water polo to a fourth-place finish at the Western Water Polo Association championship tournament this year. Vowell was a team captain for the 2012 season and he finished his UC Davis career as the most successful left-hander in program history.
This year, Vowell played in all 29 games for the Aggies, tallying 630 minutes of play time. He was a strong force for the offense, scoring 31 goals and dishing out 40 assists to his teammates.
The Lincoln, Calif. native is an incredibly dedicated player who has always led by example. He improved so much during his four years as an Aggie and his performance in the pool and his leadership on the deck will be missed next season.
