Men's Water Polo Lands Two on All-South Team
Hornberger, Whittam Receive Conference Awards
Nov. 11, 2006
PRINCETON, NJ - George Washington men's water polo senior John Hornberger and junior Chris Whittam have been named to the Collegiate Water Polo Association All-South Teams as announced by the league prior to the Eastern Championships at Princeton University this weekend.
Hornberger was named to the All-South First Team after earning second team honors a season ago. GW's lone senior led this year's team and is currently sixth in the country with a single-season career-high 68 goals. He also added 13 assists for a career-high 81 points this fall. Hornberger finished his career with 166 goals and ranks second all-time at GW in ejections drawn (182) and penalties drawn (30).
Junior goalkeeper Whittam had a brilliant season, making a career-high 226 blocks, good for ninth in the nation, to lead the Colonials' defense. Whittam tied a program record with 19 saves against nationally-ranked Pacific in September and rode the momentum of that performance to an all-conference selection. He is third at the University with 507 career blocks and second in both career goals-against-average (8.88) and save percentage (.500) with one year of eligibility remaining.
GW, led by eighth-year head coach Scott Reed, won 14 games this season, the most since 1998, including victories against nationally-ranked programs Santa Clara (13-11) and Bucknell (7-6). The Colonials finished the year with three wins in four games at the CWPA Southern Championships to narrowly miss qualifying for Easterns.
