LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Air Force water polo player Brad Rajchel has been named the KAP7 Western Water Polo Association Player of the Week, announced this afternoon by the league. Rajchel, who earns the first WWPA Player of the Week honor of his career, is the third different Falcon to receive the award this season.
Rajchel, a senior from Orlando, Fla., helped lead Air Force to a 15-11 victory over nationally ranked conference foe UC Davis on Saturday, scoring a team-high four goals against the Aggies. The team co-captain tallied all four of his scores in the first half, including three in the second period, to help the Falcons pull away, as Air Force improved to 2-0 at home and 7-2 in the WWPA.
The 13th-ranked Falcons are back on the road this week, visiting No. 11 WWPA rival UC San Diego on Oct. 18, while competing at The Rodeo, hosted by Santa Clara, Oct. 20-21.
