BRIDGEPORT, Pa. – The Connecticut College women's water polo team as well as five of its student-athletes earned all-academic recognition from the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) for excellence in the classroom.
The Camels registered a 3.32 grade point average as a team during the 2018-19 academic year to earn recognition as an entire program. The team's mark also ranked third among the 10 CWPA Division III institutions, only trailing Macalester and Wittenberg.
In addition, five student-athletes were recognized as scholar athletes for recording a GPA of a 3.20 or better and being at least a sophomore academically. The individuals who earned the award included sophomore captain Stephania Lopez (Chicago, Ill.), Brooklynn Hayes (Granville, Mass.), junior Hannah Rogers (Kingston, Pa.), junior captain Kaitlin Reagan (Saratoga, Calif.), and junior Ashley Ignatowski (Guilford, Conn.). Lopez, who is also a two-time ACWPC All-American, was most notably placed in the 'outstanding" category for notching a GPA above a 3.7.
The Connecticut College women's water polo team graduates one student-athlete and is slated to return eight letterwinners next season.
