Eddy, Zenk Named to CWPA All-South Second Team

Nov. 22, 2008
ANNAPOLIS, MD - George Washington men's water polo seniors Nick Eddy and David Zenk were named to the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) All-South Division second team, the league announced prior to the start of the Eastern Championship Friday night.
The awards mark the second straight year both Eddy and Zenk have earned all-league honors from the CWPA. Zenk garnered first team accolades en route to being named an honorable mention All-American, while Eddy received a second team nod in 2007.
Eddy led GW and entered the week in the top 10 in the nation with 66 goals and added 17 assists for a team-best 83 points. He also paced the Colonials with 60 ejections drawn and 13 penalties won and ranked fourth on the team with 31 steals. He wrapped his four-year career with to 187 goals, good for eighth all-time in GW program history.
One of the top players on the East Coast and the lone All-America honoree in GW water polo history, Zenk still earned All-South honors despite missing the final 15 games of the season with a wrist injury. In 16 games in 2008, Zenk still managed 57 points on 23 goals and team-leading 34 assists, 48 swim-offs won, 41 steals and 13 field blocks. He is the program's career leader in assists (158), steals (269), swim-offs won (268) and field blocks (35) and ranks fourth all-time with 320 points and 11th with 162 goals.
GW won its final three games and four of its last five to finish in fifth place at the CWPA Southern Division Championship earlier this month. The Colonials, who entered the season ranked No. 18, finished 11-20 overall.
