UC Irvine freshman Jessy Cardey, junior Cortney Collyer and senior Kat Plummer each were named All-American honorable mention Thursday by the Assn. of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches.
It is the first time they have been named All-American in their careers.
Each of the three players earned All-Big West first-team honors with Cardey being named Big West Freshman of the Year and the MVP of the Big West Tournament. The Anteaters (15-14), as the No. 4- seed, defeated No. 2-seeded Cal State Northridge to win their second straight Big West Tournament title.
This is the most players UCI has had named All-American in a season in the 10-year history of the program, topping the previous total of two in 2006.
