GW Men's Water Polo's Daniel Tyner Named to CWPA All-South First Team
Sophomore Attack Finished Second on Team with 48 Goals in 2011
Nov. 18, 2011
BRIDGEPORT, Pa. - George Washington men's water polo sophomore Daniel Tyner earned a spot on a Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Southern Division All-Conference Team for the second straight year with his selection to the 2011 All-South First Team on Friday.
The All-Conference teams are selected by the league's varsity coaches in the Northern and Southern Divisions, with the coaches selecting 14 players from each division to All-Conference distinction.
Tyner, who earned All-South Second Team honors as a freshman in 2010, finished second on the team with 48 goals despite missing seven games late in the season due to injury. He's the first Colonials' player to earn All-South First Team honors since honorable mention All-American David Zenk ('09) in 2007 and is the program's eighth first team honoree overall.
Among the team's players who had at least 50 shots, Tyner led the Colonials with a 51 percent success rate by converting 48-of-95 shot attempts. Despite missing those seven games, he still managed to equal the team lead with 44 ejections drawn and also finished third on the team with 20 assists and fourth with 68 points.
He led or tied the GW team-lead in goals nine times during the season, highlighted by a career-best nine-goal effort in a 14-13 victory over Johns Hopkins on Sept. 24.
GW finished with a 13-17 overall record for 2011 after winning its final three matches of the season at the CWPA Southern Division Championship. It marked the seventh time since 2000 that the Colonials placed fifth at Southerns.
