CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – For the second year in-a-row, a pair of Harvard women's water polo student-athletes have earned All-America status, as both Yoshi Andersen and Cleo Harrington were named to the 2016 Division I ACWPC All-America Honorable Mention team, as announced by the association Thursday.
Andersen becomes the first three-time All-American in program history with her third-straight honorable mention nod. The senior co-captain tied for third on the team with 42 goals, third with 32 steals and second with 31 assists. Andersen registered 14 multi-score efforts, while scoring in 22 of the Crimson's 30 contests. The Laguna Beach, California native lead the team in scoring in 2014 and 2015 and finished second all-time in program history with 248 career scores.
Harrington becomes the first sophomore to earned All-America honors since Andersen in 2014. Hailing from Costa Mesa, California, Harrington was a force in net as she broke the program single-season saves record with 308 stops to go with 25 assists and 18 steals. Consistently shutting down opponents attack, Harrington posted 15 double-digit save efforts on the season, including a career-best 21-save performance against Connecticut College April 30 at the CWPA Championship. Those numbers earned her a spot on the CWPA Division I/II all-conference and all-tournament first teams as well as team MVP honors, becoming just the second goalie in program history to earn the accolade.
