After scoring a goal in sudden-death overtime to give the men’s water polo team an 8-7 win over Harvard last Thursday, Corey Schwartz ’11 has won the College Water Polo Association Player of the Week Award. Off a pass from Hank Weintraub ’09, Schwartz’s score ended the game, which had already lasted two overtime sessions. The goal gave Brown a win over rival Harvard, even as the Bears played with defender Brandon Yoshimura ’11 as goalkeeper due to last week’s suspension of goalie Kent Holland ’10.

Schwartz, a Los Angeles, Calif., native, also led the team with two goals in a 10-7 victory over Mercyhurst College the next day. For the season, Schwartz has scored 22 goals in 25 games, good for sixth on the team. Schwartz will look to increase this total when Brown plays in the Northern Division Championships this weekend.
