DAVIS, Calif. - Junior center Dakotah Mohr, sophomore utility Jessica Dunn and sophomore attacker Carmen Eggert represented UC Davis with second-team honors among the All-Big West Conference team for women's water polo, it was announced by the league office Wednesday morning.
This is the second such award for Mohr, who made the second team in 2009. Dunn captured honorable mention as a freshman last season. This is the first all-conference nod for Eggert.
Mohr, a local product of Davis Senior High, shot 37-for-79 with 15 assists after redshirting the 2010 season. She led the Aggies with 78 drawn exclusions, a category in which she already held the school season benchmark, to lift her career total to a record 254.
Dunn, from Los Alamitos, led UC Davis with 91 points and 40 assists, the latter of which ranks second in school history. Her 51 goals tied for eighth in the conference, while her defensive totals of 45 steals and 16 field blocks held or shared the team lead.
A San Rafael native and Marin Catholic High grad, Eggert enjoyed her first full season by leading the Aggies with 57 goals, including 23-for-40 shooting on 6-on-5 opportunities. She also tied Dunn with 45 steals and finished second to Mohr with 61 drawn exclusions (57 major fouls, four five-meters). In the five Big West Conference games, she scored 14 goals with seven steals and 19 drawn kickouts.
UC Irvine picked up each of the Big West's major awards: sophomore Jessy Cardey won Player of the Year, utility Danielle Warde was selected as Freshman of the Year and Dan Klatt earned the title of Coach of the Year.
UC Davis finished the 2011 season with a 20-12 overall record and placed third in the conference tournament with a 9-7 victory over second-seeded Cal State Northridge.
