    USC women's water polo's academic success has been reflected in this year's All-Academic Awards list, with four Women of Troy standing out on the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches' honor roll for their strong GPAs. Seniors Flora Bolonyai and Madeline Rosenthal are joined by Natalie Lavinsky and Avery Peterson on the list for 2014.

    Leading the pack once again is senior Flora Bolonyai, whose 3.49 GPA and laundry list of academic accolades now has another addition with which to wrap her Trojan career. It's the fourth ACWPC All-Academic honor for Bolonyai, who also has claimed CoSIDA Capital One Academic All-American First Team and Second Team status during her time at Troy. Bolonyai is joined on the ACWPC All-Academic list for the third straight season by fellow senior Madeline Rosenthal, who holds a 3.33 GPA. The two seniors also finished their USC careers as three-time MPSF Scholar-Athletes.

    Following in the footsteps of the two Trojans standouts -- who shined in the pool and the classroom for the Women of Troy for four years -- are two younger Trojans. Sophomore Natalie Lavinsky (3.4 GPA) and freshman Avery Peterson (3.21) have also landed a place on the ACWPC All-Academic Awards list for the first time in their early USC careers.

    ACWPC All-Academic Awards are bestowed upon collegiate water polo player with a cumulative GPA of 3.2 and above. For the complete list,CLICK HERE
