    Four members of the recently crowned NCAA champion USC women's water polo team have added academic accolades to their 2013 honor roll. National champs Flora Bolonyai, Madeline Rosenthal, Chelsea Silvers and Monica Vavic are on the list as MPSF All-Academic Scholar-Athletes in recognition of their strong GPAs.

    Senior Chelsea Silvers closes out her Trojan playing career as a member of two NCAA championship teams while also compiling a full set of honors as an MPSF All-Academic Scholar-Athlete. The three-time honoree holds a 3.47 cumulative GPA as a communication major who is minoring in English.

    Juniors Flora Bolonyai and Madeline Rosenthal, meanwhile, have also kept up their grades in earning their second selection as an MPSF All-Academic Scholar-Athlete. 2012 Olympian and 2013 NCAA Tournament MVP Bolonyai boasts a 3.39 GPA, majoring in economics/mathematics. She also recently earned CoSIDA Academic All-District honors, putting her in line for potential selection as a CoSIDA Academic All-American. Rosenthal, who scored two huge goals for the Trojans in their 2013 NCAA Championship victory, holds a 3.24 GPA as a communication major with a minor in consumer behavior.

    Eligible for MPSF All-Academic Scholar-Athlete honors as a sophomore this season, Monica Vavic has snared a spot on the honor roll as well. The 2013 MPSF Player of the Year holds a 3.15 GPA and is a communication major.
