LEWISBURG, PA - The George Washington men's water polo team's seniors totaled nine goals and sophomore Cray Rogers matched a career-high five goals as the fifth-seeded Colonials rolled over No. 7 seed Gannon, 14-4, in the fifth-place game of the CWPA Southern Division Championship Sunday.
GW finishes its season 9-22 overall and places fifth at Southerns for the third time in the past four seasons. The Colonials finished third and advanced to the CWPA Eastern Championship in 2007.
