Destici, Mavis Named to All-MAWPC First Team
Pair of Colonials earned conference honors Friday
Destici is a repeat all-MAWPC selection after posting a team-high 116 points in the regular season on 51 goals and 65 assists. The sophomore from Turkey has already broken the program record for assists in a season, which had stood since 1992. He's gotten it done defensively as well, leading the squad in steals (53) and field blocks (13).
Mavis emerged as GW's top scoring threat in his sophomore season. The New Jersey native has piled up a 70 goals in 25 games, converting 50 percent of his attempts. He's also helped the Colonials' offensive attack by drawing a team-high 70 ejections and adding 11 assists.
It's the seventh straight season GW has been represented on the all-conference first team but only the second time in program history more than one Colonial has made the list. They had three First Team honorees last fall.
Destici and Mavis helped GW earn 14 wins during the regular season, including a 7-3 mark in MAWPC play. The second-seeded Colonials will chase their first conference championship this weekend at Navy's Lejeune Hall, beginning Friday with a quarterfinal against No. 7 Gannon at 6 p.m.
