Senior Tori Barbata (Kailua, HI) was recently awarded All-America honorable mention recognition by the CWPA. Just the second player to receive such honors since the program's jump to varsity status in 1999, Barbata also received the Smith Trophy this year at Brown.
The Smith Trophy is awarded to an individual in aquatics that has made a significant impact in and out of the pool. She was a four-year starter and earned numerous All-Conference, All-ECAC, and All-East awards, capping off her senior season as an All-American. Written in the selection criteria for the award is, "the award recipient should be one of those players that keeps you coaching" and Tori definitely meets this criteria.
