Aug. 2, 2012
WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's water polo team placed seven athletes on the 2012 Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Women's Varsity Scholar-Athlete Team and six on the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) All-Academic Team, the organizations announced.
Senior Monica Hanson received the highest recognition awarded for the fourth year in a row, as she earned outstanding status for boasting a cumulative grade-point average between 3.71 and 4.0. She was joined on that list by junior Jessie Hurd, who also earned outstanding status as a freshman in 2010 before earning superior status a year ago.
Another four-time honoree and the 2012 CWPA Women's Varsity Scholar-Athlete of the Year, senior Megan Walker received superior status with a GPA between 3.41 and 3.70. Sophomores Erin Dickson and Allison Littlejohn were both repeat honorees at the superior level, while freshman Jessie Sinkula was also recognized as superior by the CWPA.
Sophomore Rachael Bentley rounds out the Colonial honorees with excellent status for a GPA between 3.20 and 3.40.
With a team GPA of 3.14, GW was one of 12 teams in the CWPA and one of 28 across the nation above 3.0.
The ACWPC All-Academic Team and CWPA Scholar-Athlete Team honor varsity student-athletes who possess a 3.2 cumulative GPA or higher, and the ACWPC requires the athletes to have competed in at least half of their team's games during the 2012 season. The ACWPC recognized more than 250 student-athletes across the nation, one of the largest fields ever, while the CWPA honored 138 from its member schools.
