Sports In Brief

After strong weekend, Deasey named CWPA Rookie of Week

Freshman men’s water polo player Paul Deasey was named the Collegiate Water Polo Association Southern Division Rookie of the Week Tuesday. Deasey scored three goals and had seven assists for the Colonials, who split their games over the weekend with a 10-7 win over Bucknell and a 13-9 loss to Princeton.

Deasey was especially key against the Bison last Saturday, scoring twice in the fourth quarter to help GW seal the win and snap a 14-game losing streak. His four assists against Princeton Sunday were a team high.

Deasey is the second GW freshman to be named the CWPA Rookie of the Week. Fellow freshman Daniel Tyner won the award twice so far this season, Sept. 7 and 15.

The Colonials will be off until Oct. 6, when they will take on Navy at home at 8 p.m.
