Sept. 23, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington men's water polo team (1-7, 0-4 CWPA South) will head to Cambridge, MA for the ECAC Championship this weekend. The Colonials will square off against No. 9 Princeton at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25 and will face Iona at 2:00 p.m. GW will also compete on Sunday, Sept. 26 versus yet to be determined opponents.
GW has lost its last four straight games since defeating Iona at the Navy Open on Sept. 5. Senior Nick Koenemann leads the Colonials with 17 points, while two freshmen, Nick Eddy and John Jennings, are tied for second with 10 points each. Koenemann also is tops on the squad with 15 ejections drawn. Freshman Chris Whittam sports an 8.91 goals-against average and has made 55 saves.
The Colonials have already competed against both outfits they will face on Saturday. After defeating Iona, 8-4, on Sept. 5, GW lost to Princeton, 8-4, in its conference opener.
Princeton is 8-0 this season and is coming off a sweep of league foes Navy and Salem on Sept. 18.
Iona is 3-3 on the year and has split its last two matches since losing to GW. The Gaels defeated MIT, 8-7, on Sept. 18, but lost to Brown, 10-6 later that afternoon.
GW placed fifth in Championship last year, finishing the event with a 2-2 record.
