Petkovic Named CWPA Mid-Atlantic Player of the Week
The redshirt senior led GW to two wins over the weekend
Redshirt senior Bogdan Petkovic of the GW men's water polo team has been name the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Mid-Atlantic Player of the Week, the league announced Tuesday.
Petkovic led the Colonials to a pair of divisional road wins over Fordham (15-5) and Wagner (17-10) on Sunday, pacing the team with nine goals and six assists. Against Fordham, he broke a 3-3 tie in the second quarter by scoring three straight goals to give GW a lead it wouldn't surrender, and tallied five for the game.
The central defender added another four goals as GW led throughout in the win over Wagner, to improve to 4-1 in league play this season. A native of Belgrade, Serbia, Petkovic has accounted for 28 goals, 33 steals and a team-high 22 steals this season.
Last week, he was named to the CWPA Mid-Atlantic Player of the Week Honor Roll after anchoring a defensive effort that yielded just six goals to Fordham, and nine goals to Wagner. He also provided a punch to GW’s offensive attack with nine assists and seven goals, and finished the weekend with six steals, four ejections drawn and two field blocks.
The 17th-ranked Colonials are back in action this weekend with a conference tilt at No. 10 Bucknell on Saturday, and non-conference matches with Princeton and La Salle on Sunday.
