ACWPC 2011 All-American Teams

Princeton men's water polo freshmen Drew Hoffenberg and Thomas Nelson were named ACWPC 2011 All-America Honorable Mention selections, announced by the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches. The duo was integral in the Tigers run at the National Championship and third-place finish in the tournament.

Hoffenberg capped off a standout rookie campaign leading the team with 47 goals, 36 assists, 41 drawn ejections and 11 blocks. He was named to the All-South Second Team during the regular season and led the Tigers in the Eastern Tournament, where he was named Most Valuable Player, the event's top rookie and earned All-Eastern First Team honors. The attacker was also named to the NCAA All-Tournament Second Team.

Center Nelson (left) was also an immediate impact player for the Tigers, seeing action in 32 games, while scoring 34 goals and tallying eight assists and 38 steals, to lead the team. At the NCAA Championships, he became the first-ever Princeton player to receive first team all-tournament honors after scoring six goals, including three versus eventual champion USC.

Princeton concluded the 2011 season with a 22-11 overall, 6-2 CWPA Southern record and ranked No. 10 in the nation.
