Water polo alumni win NCAA national title

Water polo players Alec Zwaneveld ’12 and Warren Synder ’14 have continued their championship-winning ways in the pool.

Both are members of the nation’s top-ranked UCLA men’s water polo team, who defeated third-ranked squad and six-time defending champion USC 9-8 on Dec. 7 to win the NCAA National Championship.

Zwaneveld, a 6’8″, 220- pound sophomore who plays center, scored 11 goals for the Bruins this season. This was his first championship victory since winning titles in each of his four seasons as a Wolverine.

Synder redshirted the season.
