Stanford University’s Kiley Neushul received another national player of the year award this week after being named the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches’ Player of the Year.
Neushul, a Dos Pueblos graduate whose mother is the head coach at UC Santa Barbara, was recently given the Peter J. Cutino Award for being the nation’s top college player each year.
The freshman was a crucial piece in Stanford’s national championship team, scoring 58 goals in her first NCAA season. The driver recorded 11 hat tricks and 17 multi-goal games as the Cardinal went 26-2 overall, including a perfect 7-0 record in MPSF regular-season play.
On the ACWPC All-American First Team were UCLA’s KK Clark and Caitlin Dement, USC’s Monica Vavic, Stanford’s Kaley Dodson, Arizona State’s Alicia Brightwell, and Cal’s Breda Vosters.
Stanford led all schools with six players named to the First Team, Second Team, Third Team, and Honorable Mention.
