GW's Petkovic Named Honorable Mention All-American for Second Time
Sophomore is First Colonial Ever to Earn All-America Honors Twice
Feb. 13, 2014
WASHINGTON - George Washington men's water polo sophomore Bogdan Petkovic was selected as an Honorable Mention All-American by Division I head coaches across the nation for the second year in a row, the Association of College Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) announced on Thursday.
Petkovic is the first Colonial ever to earn All-America recognition twice after also garnering honorable mention as a freshman last season. David Zenk is the only other Colonial to earn All-America accolades, as he was also named honorable mention in 2007.
Petkovic was named to the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) All-Southern Division First Team for the second consecutive season in November, just the second Colonial to earn multiple first-team honors from the CWPA.
The 2012 CWPA Southern Division Rookie of the Year, Petkovic recorded a program-record 30 field blocks and a team-high 75 steals in 2013, and he ranked second on the squad with 88 points and 35 assists and third with 53 goals and 21 ejections drawn.
The sophomore central defender already ranks fifth all-time at GW with 171 steals and second with 48 field blocks after just two seasons.
A native of Belgrade, Serbia, Petkovic was named Southern Division co-Player of the Week on Sept. 19.
