Zenk Named Honorable Mention All-American
Dec. 31, 2007
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington men's water polo junior David Zenk has been named an honorable mention All-America selection by the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches. Zenk is the first GW men's water polo player to earn All-America accolades.
Zenk, who earned CWPA All-South First Team honors this fall, led GW to a third-place finish at the Eastern Championships and No. 17 ranking in the final CWPA National Top 20. The third-place finish was the program's highest-ever at the Eastern Championships and the No. 17 ranking was its highest since 1998. The Colonials finished the 2007 season 12-18 overall, with three victories against Top 20 foes and 11 losses by two goals or less to Top 20 teams.
Zenk was the lone Colonials player recognized on the All-South First Team after leading the team with 94 points, 43 assists, 89 steals and 100 swim-offs won. He had three goals in GW's quarterfinal upset of fourth-seed No. 17 Brown and added an assist in a victory against sixth-seed Harvard to earn Eastern Championships All-Tournament Team honors.
Zenk will begin his senior season 10 assists shy of tying the school record of 134 held by Glauco Souza and 2 steals shy of the program mark of 229. He already holds school-records in swim-offs won (220) and field blocks (22). His 100 swim-offs won, 89 steals and 17 field blocks in 2007 were single-season program records.
