WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's water polo team placed five athletes on the 2011 Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) All-Academic Team, as was announced by the ACWPC on March 9.
Junior Cameron Illes received the highest recognition awarded for the third year in a row, as he earned outstanding status for boasting a cumulative grade-point average between 3.71 and 4.0. He was joined on that list by sophomore Adam Streeter, who also earned outstanding status last season.
Another three-time honoree, junior John Paul Bezerra received superior status with a GPA between 3.41 and 3.70. Bezerra was also recognized on the superior list as a rookie in 2009 before earning excellent status a year ago.
The ACWPC All-Academic Team honors varsity student-athletes who possess a 3.2 cumulative GPA or higher and competed in at least half of their team's games during the 2011 season. The 2011 Men's All-Academic Awards recognized nearly 250 student-athletes, one of the largest fields ever.
