Larry Sanders begins his sixth season as head coach of the UC San Diego women’s water polo team. He first joined the UCSD staff in 1993, serving as the men’s water polo assistant coach and director of the team’s recruiting efforts. In five seasons at the helm of the highly-successful UCSD women’s water polo team, Sanders has led the Tritons to a 96-74 record, with WWPA Championship in 2000 and three runner-up finishes. Sanders took over the team during an exciting time for women’s water polo. UCSD had established itself as one of the nation’s top teams, winning five national championships from 1986 to 1994. But in 2000, the NCAA officially recognized women’s water polo as a championship sport, providing Sanders with new opportunities and challenges never before presented to the team. While water polo continues to be added as an NCAA sport at more and more institutions, Sanders has done an admirable job maintaining UCSD’s level of national prestige. Sanders was selected WWWPA Coach of the Year in his rookie season as head coach. His Tritons have also boasted 10 WWPA All-Americans since the move to Division II, including two Player of the Years (Emma Kudritzki in 2002 and Dana Tucker in 2003). A 1988 UCSD graduate, Sanders was a four-year starter for the Tritons, earning All-WWPA honors in each of his last three seasons, as well as Team MVP and an All-American Honorable Mention nod as a senior.

Since graduation, Gregory has been coaching locally at La Jolla High School. She is currently finishing her teaching credential at San Diego State.
