The men’s water polo team completed its best season by finishing in third place in the Collegiate Water Polo Association Eastern Championships, held at Harvard University last weekend. After losing 15-3 to Navy in the semifinals, GW beat Harvard 7-5 in the third-place game Sunday.
Despite going 12-18 in the regular season, the Colonials made Easterns for the first time since 2003 and the semifinal appearance was their first ever. The team beat three top 20 teams, including No. 17 Brown in the first round of Easterns, during the season.
Scott Reed, GW’s head coach, was named the CWPA Southern Division coach of the year Friday.
