GW's Bentley Garners Third Southern Division Player of the Week Nod
Junior Became All-Time Scoring Leader
April 18, 2013
BRIDGEPORT, Pa. - George Washington junior Rachael Bentley was named Southern Division Player of the Week for games played April 8-14, the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) announced on Thursday.
Bentley led the Colonials to fourth place at the Southern Division Championship with 11 points on seven goals and four assists. Her best game came against Harvard, when she tallied seven points on five goals and two helpers en route to becoming GW's all-time scoring leader with 254 career points. The Riverside, Calif., native also scored both of GW's goals against No. 12 Princeton.
For the season, Bentley leads the Colonials with 93 points - six shy of her own single-season program mark - and her 53 assists are a single-season school record. She also recently became GW's all-time assists leader with 133.
The award marks the third Player of the Week nod this season for Bentley, as she also earned the honor on Feb. 20 and March 20. She is just the second Colonial ever to receive the distinction three times in one season, joining teammate Allison Peotter, who was tabbed Player of the Week four times in 2011. With her fourth career Player of the Week honor, Bentley also joins Peotter (6) as the only Colonials to be garner the top weekly award at least four times.
It is the fourth time this season a GW player has been named Southern Division Player of the Week, as freshman Hannah Cox was recognized on March 6.
Bentley and the Colonials host VMI in their regular-season finale on Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Charles E. Smith Center Pool.
