Fox, Deaver Earn CWPA Northern Division Weekly Awards

BRIDGEPORT, Pa. – Junior Henry Fox (Mercer Island, Wash.) took home the Collegiate Water Polo Association Northern Division Player of the Week award while classmate Nick Deaver (Orinda, Calif.) received the Defensive Player of the Week honor, it was announced by the CWPA league office on Wednesday. The duo helped the No. 16 Brown men's water polo team post a 3-2 record in the season-opening Bruno Fall Classic last weekend.

 

A two-time Northern Division Player of the Week selection in 2012, Fox sank 11 goals over five games for the Bears, including six combined goals on Sunday that saw Brown chalk up a 13-3 win over Washington & Jefferson. Deaver notched nine goals and 13 steals during the tournament, highlighted by a three-goal, six-steal effort against the Presidents on Sunday.

 

The Bears head back into the pool this Friday against Cal Lutheran at 8 p.m. for the first of three days of tournament action during the Bruno Fall Invitational at the Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center.
