Two Trojans Earn All-Academic Accolades
March 13, 2012
Two members of the 2011 USC men's water polo team have added yet another award to their NCAA championship resumes, as senior Joel Dennerley and redshirt freshman Ivan Kustic have earned All-Academic honors from the Association of Collegiate Water Polo coaches.
Joel Dennerley -- USC's most decorated goalie in Trojan history -- graduated from USC with a 3.03 cumulative GPA as a human performance major. The 2011 National Player of the Year, a four-time NCAA champion and All-American, USC's all-time saves leader also is a two-time MPSF Scholar-Athlete to go along with this year's national All-Academic honors.
Ivan Kustic, who scored eight goals for the Trojans this past season on their path to winning their fourth straight NCAA title, also was named a 2011 MPSF Scholar-Athlete to supplement this season's national All-Academic award. A redshirt freshman, he holds a 3.32 GPA as an undeclared major.
