BRIDGEPORT, Pa. – The Harvard men's water polo team and 13 student-athletes received recognition when The Collegiate Water Polo Association released its 2010 Men's Scholar-Athlete Team Tuesday.

Senior co-captain Bret Voith and sophomore Antone Martinho were two of 33 athletes who earned "Outstanding" recognition. Freshmen James Field, Neal O'Hara and William Roller; juniors Alexandre Popp and Kevin DiSilvestro; and seniors Jeff Lee and Alex Thompson all received "Superior" recognition. Freshmen Hank Clausner and Nathan Clement, and juniors Mike Katzer and Evan Zepfel garnered "Excellent" honors.

The Crimson posted the third-best team GPA in the CWPA with a cumulative 3.43, behind Brown's 3.52 and St. Francis (N.Y.)'s 3.43, and just ahead of Cambridge rival MIT's 3.36.

Previously named the All-Academic Team, the CWPA Scholar-Athlete Team honors both varsity and club student-athletes who have achieved GPAs of 3.2 or higher and competed during the 2010 men's season. Overall, the total number of recognized CWPA student-athletes in the 2010 season was 330, a 27-player increase over the previous conference record of 303 athletes achieved with the 2009 CWPA Scholar-Athlete Team.
