Princeton men’s water polo senior Billy Tifft was named the recipient of the team’s Scott A. C. Roche ’94 Memorial Water Polo Award, it was announced Wednesday.

A 2012 co-captain, Tifft has been part of two CWPA Southern and Eastern championships over his four-year career. The squad also advanced twice to the NCAA Championships, earning third-place finishes in both appearances in 2009 and 2011.

Tifft has been a consistent performer for the Tigers, seeing action in nearly every game played during his career. He tallied 102 steals, 42 goals, 28 assists and 20 blocks over 115 games played.

The Roche Award is presented annually, by election of the team, to the senior player who, like Scott, led with energy and determination, intense competitive spirit and a contagious love of the game, and is presented by Scott's family and friends. The award was first presented in 1998 and recent winners have included Zach Beckmann (2007), Alex Edmunds (2008), Scott Hvidt (2009), Peter Schulam (2011) and Jeff Cole (2012).
