CAMBRIDGE, Mass.
Aisha Price of the Harvard women's water polo team became the program's third student-athlete to be designated as an All-American, the Collegiate Water Polo Association announced. Price joins Catherine Ysrael '86 and Devan Kennifer '12, who was a two-time All-America selection, as the only players from Harvard to be awarded the honor.

Price led the Crimson in every major statistical category to help Harvard go 18-16 overall last season. She accumulated 79 goals, 45 assists and 72 steals, all new career highs. The senior co-captain was a first team all-conference pick from the CWPA Southern Division and was named to the CWPA Eastern Championship Tournament second team. Price, who was Harvard's Most Valuable Player, also established new career game-highs of six assists (vs. Villanova, 2/24/13) and six steals (vs. Iona, 2/23/13) during the 2013 campaign.

A member of the Harvard women's soccer team, Price was one of the most successful student-athletes at Harvard during the last four years. For her efforts, she was awarded The Mary G. Paget Prize, given to the senior who has contributed the most to women's athletics.

The Honolulu, Hawaii, native also excelled in the classroom during her time in Cambridge. She was an Academic All-Ivy League selection in 2013 and helped the women's water polo team to the Division I Academic Progress Rate Public Recognition Award, which is given to teams that posted multi-year APR scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports.
