March 31, 2009

Providence, RI - For the second time this season, Brown University center Bethany Kwoka (San Mateo, CA) was named the Collegiate Water Polo Association's Northern Division Rookie of the Week. Kwoka earned the honor after she netted seven goals, three assists and six steals to lead the Bears to a 3-3 record in California last week.

Kwoka tallied a hat-trick in a 12-6 victory over California State University-San Bernardino, and added three more in an 11-4 win over Concordia as the Bears stopped CSU-San Bernardino, Concordia and Whittier (9-1 W), while falling to No. 3-ranked University of California-Los Angeles (15-9 L), No. 9 University of California-Irvine and No. 16 University of California-San Diego.

Brown is back in action when it hosts Hartwick at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 3, at Wheaton College in Norton, Mass.
