GREENWOOD, In. (May 12, 2016) – Caltech men's water polo junior Christopher Bradley (Half Moon Bay, Calif. / Serra) has been named to the Academic All-District Men's At-Large Team, which is selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America. He is the first member of the men's water polo program to earn the honor.
Bradley followed up his 2014 program-record 134-goal campaign with an impressive all-around junior season in which he scored another 89 goals, assisted 25, made 30 steals, blocked 26 shots and drew 29 exclusions. He already has totaled an eye-popping 285 goals in his three years as a Beaver.
Bradley is one of only three Division III water polo players in the country to have been recognized by the regional honor. Last year, he was also one of just three DIII water polo players in the nation to be named Academic All-America, becoming the first Beaver in over a decade to earn the prestigious distinction.
Student-athletes must maintain a cumulative, non-rounded 3.30 GPA on a 4.0 scale, have completed at least one calendar year at the nominating institution and reached at least sophomore athletic standing to be eligible for nomination.
As a First Team honoree, Bradley once again will advance to the Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected in early June.
