The Bear Cubs finished up at the Big 8 tournament in the 6th spot after a victory over the Modesto Junior College Pirates. SRJC were 3-7 in conference play and had an overall record of 8-19. Team co-captains and lone sophomores of the 2015 team, Dulcie Manchenton and Ivylee Senn, had a great impact on both ends of the pool as well as helped lead a young fun loving team to water polo improvement throughout the season. Santa Rosa showed its development throughout the fall season with an early exciting golden goal win over College of San Mateo and then a controlled five point victory over the Bulldogs near the end of the year.

Manchenton was named First team Big 8 All-Conference and made the Big 8 All tournament team.

The 2015 team voted MVP, leading the team in goals scored netting 68, also put Manchenton in the school's top 10 record books at #8 in single season and career goals scored. She wasn't the only one to make it in with first year goalie Haleigh Ahlborn snagging the #9 spot with 137 saves and steals for the season. Sophomore Senn now sits at the #3 spot for career field saves and #7 for single season steals in 2015 with 47snags. First year center and defensive staple Raquel Castro also made the school's top 10 for field saves with her 8 field blocks.

The Bear Cubs look to return 8 players including offensive threats Raquel Castro at center and Logan Amadon on the perimeter as well as defensive key players including: Zoe Feldman, Julia Kennedy, Kiana Hurley, and Haleigh Ahlborn.
