GW Earns Fourth Seed at CWPA Southern Championship
Oct. 20, 2003
PRINCETON, NJ - George Washington water polo finished in fourth place at the Collegiate Water Polo Association Inter-Regional Competition at Princeton University, splitting four matches on the weekend.
GW, (7-9) who began their weekend with an 11-9 victory over Salem, cruised to another victory over Mercyhurst College in their second-round match. The Colonials racked up 11 first quarter goals, building a nearly insurmountable lead. GW held Mercyhurst to just two scores, and posted a final tally of 17-2. Freshmen John Hornberger and Julian Price led the Colonials with four scores each.
GW fell behind 7-2 by the half to Navy in their next match, as the Midshipmen capitalized on early man-up opportunities. The Colonials would hold them to just one second half score, but couldn't muster enough offense to catch Navy, falling 8-4.
The Colonials took on Johns Hopkins for the third time this season, battling to a heartbreaking, 8-7, overtime loss. The two squads were knotted at 3-3 by the half and the Blue Jays took a 6-5 edge into the final quarter. JHU led 7-6 late in the final quarter of regulation when senior Jason Grimes netted the tying goal with just three seconds remaining to send the match to overtime. In the extra period defense dictated the action as neither team gained an edge on offense. JHU would net the sole goal that would prove to be the winner.
With the fourth-place finish, GW earned the fourth seed at the upcoming CWPA Southern Championshps scheduled from Oct. 31-Nov. 1, in Lewisburg, PA
GW heads to Colorado Springs, CO next weekend to compete in the East Meets West Invite from October 25-26, facing Air Force, Cal Baptist, Iona and Chapman in the two-day tournament.
