Sonoma State landed four players on the 2010 Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches All-Academic Team, led by Holly Armijo, the Seawolves second leading scorer this past season.
Armijo, a junior from Alameda, appeared in all 36 matches and was SSU’s second-leading scorer with 45 goals.
Also named to the team was Lindsay Rangel, a freshman from Chino, who started all 36 games. She scored 24 goals and assisted on 19, earning a spot on the Western Water Polo Association All-Freshman Team.
Sarah Clauss, a freshman from South Pasadena, and Amanda Myers, a freshman from Oakdale, also were recognized for their success in the classroom.
To earn All-Academic honors, student athletes must play in at least 50 percent of their team’s matches and receive a grade point average of 3.2 or higher.
Sonoma State finished 9-27 overall and 5-13 in conference play, taking seventh in the WWPA postseason tournament.
The Seawolves were young – only two seniors — and should be stronger next season.
