Senior Receives League's Highest Honor
July 12, 2012
BRIDGEPORT, Pa. - George Washington senior Megan Walker was named the Collegiate Water Polo Association's (CWPA) 2012 Women's Varsity Division I/II Scholar-Athlete of the Year, the organization announced today.
The highest honor bestowed by the league on an active player, the award recognizes an outstanding senior student-athlete who has achieved success in both scholastic and athletic arenas while possessing a spirit which provides service to the community.
Walker was an All-Southern Division First Team honoree and team MVP in 2012, when she led GW with 51 goals and 71 ejections drawn, the fifth- and third-best single-season totals in school history, respectively. In addition, she ranked third on the team with 69 points as a senior.
A 2011 All-Southern Division Second Team selection, Walker ranks among the Colonials' career leaders in ejections drawn (2nd, 210) and goals (4th, 153). She was named Southern Division Player of the Week twice in her career (April 3, 2012; April 13, 2011).
An international affairs major with a concentration in international politics, Walker graduated from GW in May with a 3.62 cumulative grade-point average. She is a four-time CWPA Scholar-Athlete and Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) All-Academic selection, garnering excellent (2009) and superior (2010, 2011, 2012) honors during her career.
A member of GW's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), Walker participated in the AIDS Walk in Washington, D.C., with her teammates last fall.
