ANNAPOLIS, Md. - George Washington men's water polo junior Bogdan Petkovic was named to the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) All-Southern Division First Team for the third year in a row, the league announced on Friday after the Colonials' 11-8 win in the opening game of the CWPA Championship.
Petkovic is the first Colonial ever to earn three first-team accolades and just the second to be named to an all-league team three times, joining Patrick Dodge, who was recognized four times from 2000-03, including twice on the first team.
Petkovic entered the weekend with a team-high 90 points (50g, 40a), 73 steals and 18 field blocks to go with 31 ejections drawn, which ranked second on the team.
