The Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) released the 2016 women’s water polo All-Academic awards earlier this week and 14 Regals were recognized individually while Cal Lutheran as a team was honored for the fourth consecutive year.
The Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) announced the 2016 women’s water polo All-America team and Cal Lutheran landed a pair on the Second Team in seniors Amanda Jones and goalkeeper Gina Merry while Kristi McGee earned Honorable Mention status in her first year playing for the Regals.
Throughout the school year, much of the day-to-day focus is directed towards the successes of the Cal Lutheran athletics programs, but on Saturday, May 7, a group of 150 student-athletes, with their families and friends, gathered inside of the Gilbert Arena for the 13th CLU Scholar-Athlete Society Induction ceremony where academics were praised.
At the SCIAC Women’s Water Polo Championships this weekend, Cal Lutheran worked its way to a sixth place finish by going 2-2 with wins over Caltech and Redlands after falling to Pomona-Pitzer and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps.
The final home contest of the season and careers for seven Cal Lutheran women’s water polo players came on a cloudy, rainy morning, but a 13-8 SCIAC victory over Occidental made it a sweet memory for the group.
