WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's water polo team placed four athletes on the 2013 Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Men's Varsity Scholar-Athlete Team and three on the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) All-Academic Team, the organizations announced.
Senior Adam Streeter received the highest recognition awarded for the fourth year in a row, as he earned outstanding status for boasting a cumulative grade point average between 3.71 and 4.0.
Senior Paul Deasey was honored with excellent status for the fourth year in a row for a GPA between 3.20 and 3.40. He was joined on that list by junior Brian Mojica, a first-time honoree. In addition, freshman Sander Profaci was recognized by the CWPA, garnering superior status for a GPA between 3.41 and 3.70.
The ACWPC All-Academic Team and CWPA Scholar-Athlete Team honor varsity student-athletes who possess a 3.2 cumulative GPA or higher, and the ACWPC requires the athletes to have competed in at least half of their team's games during the 2013 season. The ACWPC recognized 260 student-athletes across the nation, while the CWPA honored 135 from its member schools.
