BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- The George Washington men’s water polo team has matched its highest national ranking in school history.

Off to a 9-5 start, the Colonials are ranked 14th in this week’s Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Top 20 poll, matching their previous high set in the 1997 season.

Last weekend, GW recorded its second victory of the season over a ranked team by defeating then-No. 9 Bucknell, 10-9. The win avenged a loss to the Bison earlier this season -- GW’s lone defeat in Mid-Atlantic Conference play -- and ran the Colonials’ league record to 5-1.

The Buff and Blue also own a victory over then-No. 15 Air Force, and all five of their losses have come to teams ranked in the top 13.

GW returns to action on Thursday, Oct. 20 when it starts a five-game West Coast road trip at Pacific.
