The Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches recently announced its 2007 All-America selections, naming Devin M. Lewis ’10 to the Division III Second Team for his contributions to MIT’s record-breaking season. The utility player’s goal-scoring exploits helped turn the Engineers into an offensive juggernaut, as the team finished the season with a school-record 358 goals.
The water polo team last received All-America plaudits in 2004, when David D. Lohrey ’05 was also selected as a Second Team honoree.
Lewis was Tech’s third-leading scorer with 55 goals, bringing his career tally up to an even 100 and placing him fourth all-time on the MIT scoring charts. He was also the Most Valuable Player of the Division II/III Eastern Championship after scoring 14 times in the tournament, leading the Engineers to both the Division III Eastern Championship and Small College Championship crowns. In addition, he was named to the All-Tournament First Team.
The All-America selection is Lewis’ second postseason honor for the 2007 campaign, as he also copped First Team All-North accolades from the Collegiate Water Polo Association.
Why he’s Athlete of the Week:
Lewis was instrumental in MIT’s ninth-place finish in the final CPWA Division III national poll. He is one of only 21 athletes to receive 2007 All-America recognition in water polo (First Team, Second Team, and Honorable Mention).
