BRIDGEPORT, Pa. — Jake Pescatore (Sr., New Haven, Conn./Choate Rosemary Hall) of the Connecticut College men’s water polo team is among 53 Camels’ student-athletes named to the 759-member New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Fall All-Academic Team.

He aided the Camels in posting an 8-15 mark this season with a Sixth Place finish at the Mid-Atlantic Water Polo Conference (MAWPC)-West Region Championship.
