April 8, 2013
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's water polo team placed seven athletes on the 2012 Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Men's Varsity Scholar-Athlete Team and six on the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches Association (ACWPC) All-Academic Team, the organizations announced.
Senior Cameron Illes 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. He was joined on that list by junior Adam Streeter, who has earned outstanding status three straight years, as well as graduate student Milos Purkovic.
Senior Guy Helman and junior Paul Deasey are both three-time honorees with excellent status for GPAs between 3.20 and 3.40. Sophomore Matthew Williams also earned excellent status, while senior John Paul Bezerra was recognized by the CWPA for the fourth straight season, also receiving excellent status.
With a team GPA of 3.11, GW was one of nine teams in the CWPA and one of 17 teams across the nation above 3.0.
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 2012 season. The ACWPC recognized 239 student-athletes across the nation, while the CWPA honored 127 from its member schools.
