Whittam Named CWPA Southern Division Player of the Week
Senior Goalkeeper Helped Colonials Reach Eastern Championships for First Time Since 2003
Nov. 7, 2007
BRIDGEPORT, PA - George Washington senior goalkeeper Chris Whittam was named the Collegiate Water Polo Association Southern Division Player of the Week, the league announced Wednesday. Whittam spearheaded a strong GW defensive effort to help the Colonials qualify for the Eastern Championships for the first time since 2003.
Whittam was outstanding in net as GW took third place at the CWPA Southern Division Championships, which earned the program a spot in the Eastern Championships. He made 13 saves and allowed just four goals as the Colonials upset nationally ranked No. 17 Bucknell, 6-4, to assure itself at least a top-four finish at the event.
Whittam began the tournament with five saves in a 15-10 victory against Washington & Jefferson, then added seven more in Sunday's 7-6 loss to eventual runner-up Johns Hopkins.
His 262 saves so far this year rank third in the nation and third all-time in program history, just four behind Tony Paster for second place and 44 behind leader Stephen Nadherny. Whittam also was selected CWPA Co-Player of the Week on Sept. 11, following his 31-save effort in guiding GW to a 4-0 mark at the Princeton Invitational.
Fifth-seeded GW (10-17) will face fourth-seeded and nationally ranked No. 17 Brown on the first day of the Eastern Championships, Friday, Nov. 16, at 12:30 pm, at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA.
