Men's Water Polo Lands ACWPC All-Academic Honors
Four Colonials recognized for performance in the classroom
WASHINGTON - Four George Washington men's water polo student-athletes were honored Monday for their work in the classroom on the 2017 Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) All-Academic Team.
Connor Rosenberg highlighted the group of Colonials, earning "Outstanding" status for achieving a cumulative grade point average between 3.71-4.0. Noah McKinnie Braun landed on the "Superior" list with a GPA between 3.41-3.7, while Andrew Mavis and Isher Gill claimed "Excellent" designation with GPAs between 3.20-3.40.
The academic honors come on the heels of a breakthrough season in the pool for GW, which won its first Mid-Atlantic Water Polo Conference title in the fall and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.
Braun made the All-Academic Team for the fourth straight year, while Rosenberg was recognized for a third time. Mavis picked up his first academic honor after being named an ACWPC Honorable Mention All-American for his efforts leading the Colonials in the fall. Gill was also a first-time honoree.
A total of 354 student-athletes across all three NCAA divisions were celebrated Monday by the ACWPC with 92 Outstanding, 145 Superior and 117 Excellent honors handed out.
