Four Spartans Earn Academic All-MPSF Honors

Woodland, Calif.-----Four San Jose State University women’s water polo players from the team’s successful 2009 season have earned Academic All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) honors.

    Seniors Juliet Moss (San Jose, Calif.) and Tanya Torres (Alta Loma, Calif.), junior Bridget McKee (Newbury Park, Calif.) and sophomore Alyssa Friesen (Clovis, Calif.) met the four criteria for Academic All-MPSF recognition.

    The four Spartans all have sophomore standing or higher, completed one full year at San Jose State prior to the start of the 2009 season, have a 3.00 or higher cumulative grade-point average and participated in at least 50 percent of the team’s matches this season.

    Moss, a 2009 first-team All-MPSF selection and a kinesiology major, becomes the second San Jose State women’s water polo player in the last two seasons to become a three-time Academic All-MPSF honoree since the awards program was instituted in 2002. Overall, five Spartans are three-time Academic All-MPSF in water polo.

    McKee, an anthropology major, and Torres, a health science major and a 2009 honorable mention All-MPSF player, are two-time recipients. Friesen earned her award in her first season of eligibility.
