LOS ANGELES - Senior Alexandra Honny and sophomore Ivana Castro have been named 2014 All-American by the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC), as announced by the association on Monday.
Honny earns her third straight All-American honor, claiming third-team honors after her 84-goal season that led the Lions to the Golden Coast Conference championship. Castro claims honorable mention honors after her break-out second season with the Lions, scoring 52 goals with 26 assists and 37 steals.
In winning the inaugural GCC title, Honny led the league in goals and steals (89). She becomes just the fourth Lion in program history to end her career with three all-american honors, joining Casey Flacks (2009-12), Stacia Peterson (2004-05, '07) and Teresa Guidi (2002-04).
Honny finishes her career with 291 goals, second all-time in LMU history. She also finishes third in assists (113), tops in steals (278), fifth in kick-outs drawn (189), and third in shot attempts.
Her 89 steals in 2014 is ranked third all-time for steals in a single year and she holds three of the top-10 positions. Her 84 goals in 2014 ranked fourth, four behind her 88 in 2012. She had 71 in 2013 to rank sixth.
Castro burst onto the scene as one of the top players with 52 goals to rank second on the squad. She led the Lions in the GCC Championships with nine goals, including a team-best three in the title game over San Diego State. She finished the year scoring in 29 of the 34 games.
