CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- For the first time in program history, two Harvard women's water polo players have earned All-America status, as both Yoshi Andersen and Charlotte Hendrix were named to the 2015 Division I ACWPC All-America Honorable Mention team.
Andersen, who is now a two-time All-American, and Hendrix become the sixth and seventh individual distinctions, respectively, while Andersen joins Devan Kennifer '12 as the only other Crimson to be named an All-American twice in a career. Also of note, this is the third year in a row and fourth time overall that the Crimson sports an All-American under The Friends of Harvard Water Polo Head Coach Ted Minnis.
Andersen finished the season once again with a team-best mark in goals, netting 65 in 2015. The Laguna Beach, California, native tacked on 40 assists and 31 steals as well – the second most among her peers in both statistical categories. Those numbers, and her dedication throughout the season earned her the team's Most Valuable Player award, to go along with 2015 CWPA All-Division I/II First Team accolades.
Hendrix was an integral part of the fluidity of the Crimson attack this season, compiling 58 goals, a team-high 45 assists and 27 steals. Hendrix, from Santa Barbara, California, doubled her output from 2014, and ultimately was named to the CWPA All-Division I/II second team for her efforts as a junior.
