Men’s water polo boasts six All-Americans for 2015 season
The No. 2 ranked men’s water polo team finished a 23-5 season by receiving a number of honors, including a program-record six All-American selections.
Utility player Alex Obert ‘16 led in the honors for the Tigers, with the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches naming him a First-Team All American. Obert is also a finalist for the Peter J. Cutino Award, which is the highest individual honor in collegiate water polo.
Attacker/defender Ben Stevenson ‘17 earned an All-American Second Team nod, while utility player Aleksandar Petrovic ‘17 made Third Team. Goalkeeper Brady Moore ‘16 and attackers Krisztian Laczkovics ‘16 and Devon Thumwood ‘18 all received All-American Honorable Mentions.
“I am so proud of not only the six players that have deservingly been recognized today, but also of our entire team,” Head Coach James Graham told Pacific Athletic Relations. Graham’s strong leadership this past season did not go unnoticed, as he received the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Coach of the Year award for the second time in the last three years.
“This was the most well-balanced team I’ve ever had, and it shows today with our most-ever number of All-America honorees, covering all aspects of the game,” Graham commented.
