GW Men's Water Polo Seeded Fifth for Southern Division Championship
Colonials to Face No. 4 Navy, No. 9 Monmouth College in Fridays' Pool Play
Nov. 2, 2015
BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- The George Washington men's water polo team is seeded fifth for this weekend's Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Southern Division Championship, the league announced on Monday. The Colonials will face No. 4 Navy on Friday at 4:50 p.m. and No. 9 Monmouth College at 8:50 p.m. in pool play at Bucknell's Kinney Natatorium.
Seeding was based on a vote of the division's 11 head coaches.
Reigning Southern Division champion Princeton, which won the Southern Division-East Region regular-season title and is ranked 10th in the nation, claimed the top seed in the three-day tournament. The remaining East Region programs -- Bucknell, Johns Hopkins, Navy and GW -- received the Nos. 2-5 seeds, respectively, in line with their regular-season finish.
Southern Division-West Region regular-season champion Mercyhurst earned the sixth seed, while Washington & Jefferson (7th), Gannon (8th), Monmouth (9th), Salem International (10th) and Penn State Behrend (11th) round out the field to mirror the order of finish in the West Region.
The Southern Division Championship, which takes place Nov. 6-8, will determine the five Southern Division teams which will earn automatic bids to the CWPA Championship Nov. 20-22 at MIT. The top five teams from the Southern Division Championship will compete against the top three teams from the Northern Division Championship, along with four at-large selections, for the league title and an automatic berth in the NCAA Championship.
Seeded fifth for the second year in a row and the third time in four years, GW placed fifth at the 2014 Southern Division Championship to secure an automatic berth to the CWPA Championship, where the Colonials finished eighth.
