    Following a second-place finish in the 2015 NCAA Championships, five Trojans have now earned Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches All-Academic honors. Sophomores Mihajlo Milicevic and Matteo Morelli earned their places on the honor roll along with redshirt freshmen Brock Hudnut, Tim Leong and Steven Michaud.

    International students Milicevic and Morelli, from Serbia and Italy, respectively, led the way with a 3.77 and a 3.57 GPA. Milicevic is an economics major while Morelli is undeclared but hopes to pursue a career in business.

    Hudnut joins the All-Academic team after his first season of competition at USC and is pursuing a degree in industrial systems, holding a 3.58 GPA. Leong, with a 3.56 GPA, is a business major with an emphasis in cinematic arts. Finally, Michaud is a fellow business major looking to work in the financial services industry. The USC goalie boasts a 3.35 GPA.

    All five Trojans will return next season in pursuit of the program's 10th national title. The ACWPC issues All-Academic honors to student-athletes who hold at least a 3.2 GPA.
