SCIAC Athletes of the Week

WHITTIER, Calif. – Freshman Hans Zdolsek (Linkoping, Sweden) was just named the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Athlete of the Week for Water Polo announced by the conference office Monday.

This is the second time this year Zdolsek has earned this recognition from SCIAC

Zdolsek paced the Poets to a 2-0 week, which clinched the No. 2 seed in the 2017 SCIAC Post Season Tournament.  He notched eight goals, an assist and seven steals during the stretch, including five goals in a 12-9 win over Chapman.  He added three more tallies and four steals in an 11-10 overtime win against Cal Lutheran, with two of his scores against the Kingsmen coming in the extra stanza.

In the ten weeks of voting for SCIAC Athlete of the Week, Zdolsek has won recognition twice and Carlos Heredia Viteri (Commerce, Calif.) once.
