BRIDGEPORT, PA – Johns Hopkins senior John Wilson has been named the Mid-Atlantic Water Polo Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Week for his performance last weekend. This is his fourth weekly honor this season and seventh of his career.
Wilson became the first goalie in Hopkins history to record 800 career saves following a 35-save, four-assist, 10-steal weekend against George Washington and Navy.
Wilson notched 10 saves and grabbed a pair of steals in a 19-13 defeat to George Washington. With his fifth save of the game, he eclipsed the 800-save mark for the first time in Blue Jay history. In the following game, Wilson was clutch, recording a school-record 25 saves along with eight steals to seal a hard fought 11-10 triple-overtime victory over Navy.
Wilson boasts 301 saves, 14 assists and 45 steals this season. His 301 saves are a career high and are 19 shy of the school single-season record.
Hopkins returns to action on Saturday, October 28 at 17th-ranked Bucknell. Game time is slated for 11:00 am at Kinney Natatorium.
