Water polo finishes eighth at ECAC Championships

The GW men’s water polo team went 2-3 at the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships in Princeton, N.J. this weekend, finishing eighth among the event’s 10 teams.

Freshman goalkeeper Cameron Illes tied a GW record with 19 saves in the team’s 6-5 loss to MIT Sunday in the seventh-place game.

Prior to falling to the Engineers, the Colonials defeated Harvard and Connecticut College in their first and third games and lost to No. 13 Navy and Bucknell in their second and fourth outings. Senior John-Claude Wright netted 11 of GW’s 44 goals in the tournament, leading the Colonials in scoring.

GW will return to action Saturday with a trip to Bucknell, followed by a pair of Sunday games in Princeton, N.J. against Princeton and Iona.
