Bentley, Brolley Earn CWPA All-Southern Division Honors
Juniors Garner First-Ever Postseason Accolades
April 25, 2013
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - George Washington junior Rachael Bentley was named to the CWPA All-Southern Division First Team, and junior Megan Brolley was tabbed to the Second Team, the Collegiate Water Polo Association announced on Thursday evening at the 2013 CWPA Eastern Championship and Hall of Fame banquet. The all-division teams were selected by a vote of the league's head coaches.
Bentley leads the Colonials with 96 points on 42 goals and a school-record 54 assists this season. She became GW's all-time scoring and assists leader this season with 257 career points and 134 career assists. In addition, her 96 points on the year are just three shy of her own single-season program mark of 99, which she in 2012. The Riverside, Calif., native also set a pair of single-game records this season with six assists and 11 points against Iona on March 15.
Bentley has been named Southern Division Player of the Week three times this season, making her just the second Colonial ever to be recognized three times in one year. She becomes the 11th First-Team All-South selection in program history and gives GW a first-team honoree for the fifth straight season.
Brolley paces the Colonials with 39 steals, 35 ejections drawn and six penalties drawn, and her current .547 shooting percentage is on pace to be the second-highest single-season mark in program history. A native of Delray Beach, Fla., Brolley also ranks second on the team in points (68), third in assists (27) and fourth in goals (41).
The reigning Southern Division Player of the Week, Brolley currently boasts the highest career shooting percentage in program history (.522). Her inclusion on the All-South Second Team gives the Colonials two postseason honorees for the first time since 2011.
GW (15-14) is the seventh seed in this weekend's CWPA Eastern Championship at the University of Michigan and will play 10th-seeded Gannon in the tournament's first round on Friday at 11:20 a.m.
