Colorado Springs, Colo.-----Adriana Vogt, second in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation in scoring last season, leads a foursome of San Jose State University players named to the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches 2011 All-American teams.
The senior from Menlo Park, Calif. (Sacred Heart Cathedral HS) was named a first-team All-American for her 85 goals and helping the Spartans finish fifth in the final national coaches poll. For Vogt, the All-American honor is her second in as many seasons. She was a third-team choice in 2010.
She joins Inna Fedoseyeva as the only San Jose State players named a first-team All-American in women's water polo. Fedoseyeva was a first-team All-American in 2001.
Vogt and the six other first-team All-American selections are from MPSF schools.
For the first time in the program's 15-year history, four Spartans received All-American honors in the same season.
"This team had a number of firsts this season and having four players receive All-American honors in the same season is another first. It also is the first time a Spartan goalie is honored," says San Jose State coach Lou Tully.
Junior Dani Curran (Chino, Calif./Ayala HS) was named an honorable mention All-American for the third time. Curran scored 59 goals in 2011. She is the only Spartan to score 50 or more goals in each of her first three seasons.
Goalkeeper Meagan Minson (Riverside, Calif./Arlington HS) and utility player Timi Molnar (Budapest, Hunagry) also were named honorable mention All-Americans. Minson became San Jose State's career leader in goalkeeper saves and set a single-season school record for saves in 2011. Molnar, second on the team in scoring with 69 goals and was named the MPSF Freshman of the Year, is just the second Spartan freshman to receive an All-American honor.
"We came off an outstanding finish this year and these players certainly deserved their All-American award," concludes the Spartans coach about the 2011 season.
