Jan. 2, 2008

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) recently announced its 2007 All-America selections, and sophomore Devin Lewis was rewarded for his remarkable contributions to MIT's record-breaking season by being named to the Division III Second Team. The utility player's goal-scoring exploits helped turn the Engineers into an offensive juggernaut, as the team finished the season with 358 goals, setting a new MIT standard.

With the honor, Lewis became the water polo program's first All-America recipient since 2004, when David Lohrey was also tabbed as a Second Team honoree.

Lewis was Tech's third-leading scorer with 55 goals, bringing his career tally up to an even 100 and placing him fourth all-time on the MIT scoring charts. The San Francisco, Calif., native was named the Most Valuable Player of the Division II/III Eastern Championship after scoring 14 times in the tournament to help the Engineers take both the Division III Eastern Championship and Small College Championship crowns. He was also named to the All-Tournament First Team.

The All-America selection is Lewis' second postseason honor for the 2007 campaign, as he also copped First Team All-North accolades from the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA).
