Four Trojans Land On MPSF All-Academic Honor Roll|
Jan. 25, 2016
Led by NCAA Elite 89 Award winner Mihajlo Milicevic, the USC men’s water polo team has landed four Trojans on the MPSF All-Academic roll for 2015. Boasting cumulative GPAs of at least a 3.0, Milicevic, Matteo Morelli, Chase Koplow and Lazar Pasuljevic have been named 2015 All-Academic MPSF Scholar-Athletes.
All four Trojans were members of USC’s 2015 NCAA roster, having helped the Trojans reach the NCAA title match for the 11th consecutive season. All four Trojans are in their second year at Troy, making them eligible for the MPSF honor roll for the first time this year. Sophomore Mihajlo Milicevic — a native of Serbia — leads the pack with a 3.77 GPA as an economics major. Sophomore Matteo Morelli — who came to USC from Italy — holds a 3.57 GPA and has not yet declared a major. Both Milicevic and Morelli earned All-American honors at the close of USC’s 2015 campaign. Now a two-time All-American, Milicevic was USC’s fifth leading scorer this season with 19 goals. Morelli — newly crowned with All-American status — was fourth on the team in scoring with 33 goals.
Redshirt freshman and Florida native Chase Koplow has a 3.05 GPA and is majoring in real estate. He tallied 22 goals for the Trojans in his first season of action. Sophomore Lazar Pasuljevic, another import as a product of Montenegro, has a 3.01 GPA as a real estate development major. Pasuljevic provided 13 goals for the Trojans in 2015.
