Men's Water Polo Closes Home Schedule
GW set to celebrate Senior Day vs. Navy
The Colonials (10-11, 3-3 MAWPC) welcome Johns Hopkins to Charles E. Smith Center Pool on Friday at 7 p.m. On Saturday, they will celebrate Senior Day against Navy. The ceremony to honor seniors Duke Becker, Joe Behun, Noah McKinnie Braun and Pierce Deamer is slated for 9:45 a.m. with the game starting 15 minutes later.
LAST TIME OUT: GW fell to four ranked opponents over three days at the Harvard Invitational last weekend. The Colonials showed they could hang with some of the East Coast's best clubs, especially in one-goal defeats against No. 15 Brown and No. 12 St. Francis Brooklyn.
IN FOCUS: Atakan Destici posted 13 assists in five games last week to boost his team-leading total to 51 for the season. That's an average of 2.4 helpers per contest. The sophomore from Turkey totaled 45 assists last season en route to first-team All-MAWPC and honorable mention CWPA All-American honors.
SCOUTING JOHNS HOPKINS: The Blue Jays (14-11, 0-5) claimed their record 17th CWPA DIII Eastern Championship last weekend, defeating host MIT, 11-10, in the championship. Ryan Masi netted the game-winning goal with 1:13 left. GW got five goals from Andrew Mavis on the way to winning the first meeting between these teams, 20-10, on Sept. 29 in Baltimore.
SCOUTING NAVY: The Midshipmen (8-11, 1-5) had last weekend off after splitting four nonconference games in California. Bobby Lee is their leading scorer with 21 goals and five assists.
GW knocked off Navy, 17-12, to open MAWPC play on Sept. 23 in Annapolis, Md., behind four goals and three assists from Andras Levai. The Midshipmen will host the conference tournament from Nov. 17-19 at Lejeune Pool.
COMING UP: GW has next weekend off before closing the regular season Nov. 4 with conference road games against Fordham and Wagner.
SENIOR CELEBRATION: Behun, Becker, Deamer and Braun reflect on their time at GW.
