LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Senior David Ostrom was named the Western Water Polo Association Player of the Week, as released by the conference Wednesday afternoon. It marks the first career weekly conference honor for Ostrom and the first for an Air Force player this season.
Ostrom, a native of Mission Viejo, Calif., tallied 49 saves last weekend to lead Air Force to a 2-2 record at The Rodeo, hosted by Santa Clara. He was stellar in a pair of overtime victories on Saturday, registering 12 saves and an assist in an 8-7 win over No. 13 UC Davis, while recording 20 stops, two steals and an assist in the Falcons' 9-8 win against Brown. Ostrom added eight saves and an assist against No. 19 St. Francis and nine saves and a steal against No. 16 Santa Clara. With his performance on the weekend, Ostrom moved into third place on the Falcons' career saves list with 623.
The Falcons, who currently hold a 14-11 overall record and 7-3 mark in the WWPA, wrap up the regular season next weekend, Nov. 7-8, with four road games against WWPA opponents. Air Force will visit Orange, Calif., on Nov. 7 for an away game against Chapman and a neutral site contest versus Loyola Marymount. Meanwhile, on Nov. 8, the Falcons visit La Verne and Claremont.
