March 28, 2014
WASHINGTON - After a more than two-week hiatus from competition, the George Washington women's water polo team returns to the pool on Saturday against CWPA Southern Division rival Harvard. Game time is scheduled for 12 p.m. at the Charles E. Smith Center Pool.
GW (9-11, 0-1 Southern) went 5-2 on their annual Spring Break trip to Southern California, concluding the week with wins over Concordia and Cal Lutheran.
The Colonials' five seniors account for more than 70 percent of GW's scoring this season (138 of 196 goals, 255 of 342 points). Brolley (41g, 29a) and Bentley (33g, 37a) lead the way with 70 points apiece, followed by Berry (33g, 17a) with 50. Sophomore Hannah Cox is tied with Brolley for the team lead in goals with 41, and Littlejohn paces the Colonials with 36 steals.
Bentley is the Colonials' all-time leading scorer with 342 career points - nearly 100 more than any other Colonial in program history - and she also owns the school record with 178 assists while ranking second with 164 goals, six shy of Morgan Hooker's ('07) all-time mark. Brolley ranks sixth in all three scoring categories with 144 goals, 85 assists and 229 points in her career and she is fourth with 129 ejections drawn. In addition, Berry is GW's all-time leader in field blocks (45) and ranks seventh in points (208), eighth in assists (76) and ninth in goals (132). Littlejohn is eighth all-time with 136 career steals.
Harvard (11-13, 0-0 Southern) opens its Southern Division slate on Saturday at GW. The Crimson have lost three in a row and seven of its last nine games but lost to six top-20 teams in that span, including three top-10 squads. Yoshi Anderson leads Harvard with 47 goals and 26 assists on the season, while Shayna Price has posted 45 goals and 20 assists and goalkeeper Ariel Dukes has recorded 159 saves in the cage.
Bentley combined to score nine goals in three games against Harvard last season, and she has 14 career goals against the Crimson, while Berry has scored seven goals all-time against Harvard.
Following the Colonials' game against Harvard, they will take on James Madison in an exhibition match at 3 p.m. GW will then wrap up the regular season next weekend with league contests against Mercyhurst, Bucknell and Princeton.
