CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Senior Dave Lohrey was named Second Team All-America by the American Water Polo Coaches Association, which announced its postseason accolades for the 2004 campaign. Traditionally one of the nation's most competitive teams, Lohrey's appointment marked the seventh straight season that an MIT water polo player has garnered All-America honors.
Lohrey finished second for the Engineers with 64 goals on the season, although he paced Tech's attack from the two-meter position all year. He was named to the Northern Division All-Conference team along with teammate Dan Jacobs, while Lohrey and John Rogers elicted All-Tournament honors at the Division III Eastern Championship.
Lohrey's inclusion into the Engineers' lineup has coincided with the best four-year stretch in the history of the program. Finishing at 14-14 this season, Lohrey's class became the first at MIT to post a .500 or better winning percentage all four years.
The 2003 squad obliterated the school record for wins with 23, while becoming the first MIT varsity team to earn a No. 1 ranking by a national media.
