Cameron Illes Earns Second CWPA Southern Division Weekly Nod
Senior Goalie Named Defensive Player of the Week, Approaches Program's Career Saves Mark
Sept. 25, 2012
BRIDGEPORT, Pa. - George Washington men's water polo senior goalkeeper Cameron Illes was named Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Southern Division Defensive Player of the Week for the second time this season, the league announced on Tuesday.
Illes registered 37 saves in three games for the Colonials. The Pittsburgh native stopped 15 shots in the first game of the week at Johns Hopkins, then tallied 11 saves while allowing just seven goals against No. 15 Princeton. In the final game of the week, Illes again recorded 11 saves in a 15-12 win over Bucknell as the Colonials picked up their first Southern Division victory of the season.
Illes has 145 saves on the year and 930 in his career, leaving him just 21 shy of GW's all-time program record.
The award marks the fourth weekly accolade of Illes' career. He shared the Sept. 3 Defensive Player of the Week award with Johns Hopkins goalie Erik Hendrikson, and he was twice named Southern Division Rookie of the Week in 2009.
In addition, junior Daniel Tyner was named to the Southern Division Honor Roll after tallying eight goals, nine assists and 17 points last week, including a career-high 10 points in the triumph over Bucknell.
The Colonials have two weeks off before heading to California for the Gary Troyer Tournament hosted by Pomona Pitzer Colleges, Claremont McKenna College and University of La Verne on Oct. 5-6. GW will host an alumni match and reception on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at the Charles E. Smith Center Pool as part of GW Alumni Weekend. Click here to register.
