Smith Named CWPA Northern Division Rookie of the Week

BRIDGEPORT, Pa. – Freshman Warren Smith (Dallas, Texas) was named the Collegiate Water Polo Association Northern Division Rookie of the Week for his performance during the No. 17 Brown men's water polo team's 3-2 showing at the Bruno Fall Invitational last week. Smith's accolade marks the second straight week the Bears have earned a CWPA award after juniors Henry Fox (Mercer Island, Wash.) and Nick Deaver (Orinda, Calif.) received Player of the Week and Defensive Player of the Week, respectively, on Sep. 11.


Smith scored a combined 11 goals over five games last week. The rookie tallied three goals in a 14-5 rout of Cal Lutheran and then scored five times in a crucial 12-10 win over No. 17 Navy.


Brown dives back into Northern Division play on Saturday with a New York double header at No. 14 St. Francis Brooklyn at 2 p.m. and at Fordham at 7 p.m.
