CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior Shayna Price and junior Ariel Dukes have been voted co-captains of the Harvard women's water polo team for the 2014 season, Ted Minnis, The Friends of Harvard Water Polo Head Coach, announced Wednesday.

Price and Dukes were key components of the Crimson's highly successful 2012-13 campaign. Harvard finished with an 18-16 mark, recording the longest winning streak, eight games, in program history since water polo became a NCAA sport in 2001 and a sixth-place finish at the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Eastern Championships.

An attacker, Price follows in her sister Aisha's footsteps, who served as a captain this past season. Shayna finished second on the team with 76 goals while also contributing 33 assists and 39 steals. She also earned one CWPA Southern Division Player of the Week nod after tallying seven goals, two assists and two steals in two games against Santa Clara and Occidental.

While Price made her presence felt on the offensive end, Dukes made her mark on the defensive end. The Winter Park, Fla., native played every minute in goal for the Crimson, recording 246 saves, 45 steals and 12 assists. Dukes earned second team CWPA Southern Division honors and also received three Defensive Player of the Week awards.
