Scott Reed is in his 16th year as head coach of the men's water polo pro­gram. In 2007, Reed was named CWPA Southern Division Coach of the Year for guiding GW to third place at the Eastern Championship and an end-of-season No. 17 national ranking. In 14 seasons, Coach Reed has led GW to 154 victories and four CWPA Championship (formerly CWPA Eastern Championship) appearances. He is also the first and only head coach of the GW women's water polo team, which competed in its inaugural season in the spring of 2000, and he earned CWPA Southern Division Women's Coach of the Year honors in 2003.

In 2013, Coach Reed guided the Colonials to their first top-20 ranking since the 2008 preseason poll, climbing as high as No. 17 on Oct. 2.

With Coach Reed at the helm, 20 Colonials have been named to CWPA All-Southern Division teams, including the program's only four-time honoree, Patrick Dodge (2000-03), and two players - David Zenk (2007) and Bogdan Petkovic (2012, 2013) - have been named Honorable Mention All-Americans. In addition, Petkovic became the first Colonial ever to be named Southern Division Rookie of the Year in 2012.

Coach Reed came to GW from Wash­ington & Lee University in Lexington, Va., where he served as the head water polo coach and as an assistant coach with the university's men's and women's swimming teams.

Reed graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1994 with a bachelor of science degree in sport management. At UMass, he served as a captain on the nationally ranked Minutemen's water polo squad and also competed on the swim team. He set the UMass school record in the 1,000-yard freestyle (9:30.65) during the 1990-91 season, and it stood for 10 years until it was broken in 2010-11.

In addition, Reed served as a graduate assistant in aquatics at Eastern Kentucky University, where he received a master of science degree in sport admin­istration in 1997.

Coach Reed lives in Fairfax, Va., with his wife, Allison. In March 2010, Reed was inducted into the Rhode Island Aquatic Hall of Fame. He also served on the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) board of directors for seven years. His father, Ed Reed, is the Coordinator of Officials for the CWPA. He coached at Brown for 20 years and is a member of the United States Water Polo Hall of Fame.
