Mavis helped George Washington men's water polo claim its first conference title last weekend, posting 10 goals over three wins at the Mid-Atlantic Water Polo Conference Championship.

Mavis scored a team-high three goals in Friday's 10-7 win over Gannon to start the tournament. On Saturday, the New Jersey native netted six goals, including the game-winner with five seconds left in overtime, to help the Colonials come back and defeat Fordham, 16-15. He added another score in the final victory that secured the program's first NCAA Tournament berth.

For the season, Mavis leads GW with 80 goals in 28 games. He's also drawn a team-leading 74 ejections.
