GW's Bentley, Brolley Repeat as All-Southern Division Honorees
Seniors Garner Second Team Accolades
April 24, 2014
BRIDGEPORT, Pa. - George Washington seniors Rachael Bentley and Megan Brolley were named to the CWPA All-Southern Division Second Team, the Collegiate Water Polo Association announced on Thursday. The all-division teams were selected by a vote of the league's head coaches.
Bentley led the Colonials with 46 assists and 90 points this season - the third- and fifth-highest single-season totals in program history, respectively - and she ranked third on the team with 44 goals and 22 ejections drawn and fourth with 21 steals. She shot 48.9 percent on the year, which ranks ninth on GW's single-season list.
Bentley finishes her outstanding four-year career as GW's all-time leader in goals (175), assists (187) and points (362) - over 100 points more than any other Colonial ever. In addition, her .476 career shooting percentage ranks second and her 102 ejections drawn are tied for seventh. The Riverside, Calif., native boasts the top three single-season assists totals and three of the top five points totals in team history.
Brolley paced the Colonials with 47 goals, 49 steals, 35 ejections drawn and 41 swim-offs while ranking second on the team in assists (32) and points (79). The native of Delray Beach, Fla., set a single-season program record with a .588 shooting percentage on the year, and her 41 sprints won are the fifth-most in a season in team history.
Brolley's .543 career shooting percentage is a GW record, and she ranks fifth all-time in points (238) and assists (88), sixth in goals (150), eighth in steals (147), fourth in ejections drawn (131) and third in swim-offs won (73).
Bentley and Brolley, who were each named Southern Division Player of the Week once this season, earn their second straight All-South accolades, as Bentley was tabbed to the first team a year ago and Brolley repeats on the second team. It marks the fifth time in the last six years that two Colonials have received postseason honors.
GW finished its season with a 12-15 overall record and placed fifth at the CWPA Southern Division Championship.
