POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- At Friday night’s MAAC Water Polo Championship Awards Show, junior center Dominique Clark was named to the All-MAAC First Team, while a total eight Villanova water polo student-athletes were selected to the MAAC All-Academic Team.

Clark was joined on the All-Academic Team by Maria Breen, Katie French, Jenna Gavenman, Lizzie Louwers, Olivia Perry, Mary Riley, and Kate Stenmoen. 53 student-athletes from the eight MAAC institutions were honored for their excellence in academics.

To be eligible for the MAAC All-Academic Team, a student-athlete must complete two semesters at their institution and hold a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 on a 4.0 scale.

Clark finished her junior campaign with an impressive 72 goals, which ranked sixth in the conference and best on the team. She was previously named the All-MAAC Second Team in 2016.

The Berkeley, California native was recently named to the Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Are Team for performance inside the pool and in the classroom.
