Schofield Named CWPA Southern Division Player of the Week
Sept. 25, 2012
BRIDGEPORT, PA - Johns Hopkins senior Ross Schofield netted 19 goals and seven assists in a 2-1 conference week at home in Baltimore to claim Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Southern Division Player of the Week award. It marks the fifth weekly honor during Schofield's career at Homewood as he previously picked up Southern Division Player of the Week honors three times and Rookie of the Week honors once.
Facing George Washington (W, 19-11), Bucknell (W, 14-13) and 15th-ranked Princeton (L, 9-6) to begin Southern Division-East Region play, he added six steals, two ejections drawn and a pair of field blocks for the Blue Jays.
Against George Washington in midweek action, Schofield reset the Hopkins' record book in a pair of categories by netting eight goals and six assists to set school single-game records in goals and points (14), while also equaling the single-game mark for assists. He also tacked on a pair of steals and a field block on defense while surpassing the 200 career goal mark to become the eighth Blue Jay to reach the milestone.
Over the weekend, Schofield tied his own goals' record against Bucknell as he registered eight goals and nine points with a pair of steals and ejections drawn. In the Blue Jays' second contest of the day, he chipped in a hat trick with two steals and a field block against the nationally-ranked Tigers.
Hopkins returns to action this Saturday, September 29 at the Bison Invitational. JHU is scheduled to face Toronto (3:00 pm) and Harvard (6:00 pm).
