Camel Trio Named to All-Tournament Team at D 3. Eastern Champ.
NEW LONDON, Conn.--Three Connecticut College men´s water polo players have been named to Division III Eastern Championship All-Tournament Team. Junior Sam Mitchell (Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.) was named to the first team while senior Brendan Kempf (Santa Monica, Calif.) and freshman Sam Burns (Albuquerque, N.M.) nabbed second team honors for head coach JJ Addison´s squad.
Mitchell exploded with 15 goals in a 2-2 weekend for the Camels. The junior sharp-shooter leads the Camels with 40 goals scored this season. A versatile performer and tri-captain, Kempf has shifted from playing primarily in the goal to become one of the team´s top field players. Burns erupted with 13 goals in the four matches and has netted 30 scores as one of the top newcomers in the region.
The Camels (3-14) will compete in the Northern Division Championship at Harvard University Nov. 7-8.
