Feb. 23, 2007
BREA, CA - Four George Washington men's water polo players were named to the 2006 Men's All-American Academic Team by the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches on Feb. 16.
Sophomore David Zenk and freshman John-Claude Wright earned superior status on the list for posting GPAs between 3.4 and 3.7. Senior John Hornberger and sophomore Sergei Shev were placed in the excellent category with GPAs between 3.2 and 3.4.
To be eligible for the honor, student-athletes must possess a 3.2 cumulative grade-point-average or higher. The ACWPC is a non-profit organization devoted exclusively to the interest of college water polo.
Zenk led the Colonials with 94 points on 47 goals and a team-high 47 assists in the fall. His 47 assists were the second-most in a single-season in program history, while his 72 swim-offs were a single-season program record and 76 steals rank third. Wright led all rookies and finished fourth on the team in goals (34) and points (53).
Hornberger ranked tenth in the nation with 68 goals in 2006 to earn CWPA All-South First Team accolades in his final season. He concluded his four-year career with 166 goals and ranks second all-time at GW in ejections drawn (182) and penalties drawn (30). Shev totaled 18 points on 11 goals and seven assists and finished third on the team with 26 steals.
GW, led by eighth-year head coach Scott Reed, won 14 games this season, the most since 1998, including victories against nationally-ranked programs Santa Clara (13-11) and Bucknell (7-6). The Colonials finished the year with three wins in four games at the CWPA Southern Championships to narrowly miss qualifying for Easterns.
