GW's Daniel Tyner Earns Second Southern Division Player of the Week
Senior Tallied 16 Points in Marquee Wins
Sept. 25, 2013
BRIDGEPORT, Pa. - George Washington men's water polo senior Daniel Tyner was named CWPA Southern Division Co-Player of the Week for the second time this season, the league announced on Wednesday.
The award, which he shares with Johns Hopkins' Thomas de Lyon, recognizes Tyner's efforts in games played Sept. 16-22.
Tyner led GW to a pair of marquee wins in three games against Southern Division competition, totaling 16 points on nine goals and seven assists along with five steals, two ejections drawn and a field block. The Long Beach, Calif., native tallied four goals, including two tie-breaking penalty shots, three assists and four steals in Saturday's 15-14 upset of No. 18 Bucknell, then followed that performance with eight points on four goals and four assists in a 14-13 win over Navy.
Tyner leads GW with 28 goals and 42 points on the season, and he is second on the team with 14 assists, 13 steals and nine ejections drawn.
A Colonial has been named Player of the Week all three weeks of the 2013 campaign, as Tyner also earned the season's first award and sophomore Bogdan Petkovic earned his first career honor last week. The award is the third of Tyner's career, as he also received it on Oct. 10, 2012.
Tyner and the Colonials return to the pool on Saturday when they host Johns Hopkins at 7 p.m. at the Charles E. Smith Center Pool. Prior to the game, Tyner and classmates Paul Deasey, Nate Little and Adam Streeter will be honored in a Senior Day ceremony.
