Cambridge, Mass.-----For the first time, the San Jose State University women's water polo team will travel coast-to-coast when it competes in the three-day Harvard Invitational starting March 2.

            The 12th-ranked Spartans (8-7, 0-2 MPSF) take on host Harvard (7-2), in a 7:00 p.m. (EST) contest. The Crimson is unranked, but did receive votes in the latest Collegiate Water Polo Coaches top-20 national poll.
