BRIDGEPORT, Pa. — Jordan Colina ’18 and Ashleigh Johnson ’17 were named the Princeton University men’s and women’s water polo athletes of the decade for the period of 2010-to-2019. Selections were made by the Princeton Office of Athletic Communications staff.
Colina was a two-time All-American who finished his career with 226 goals, sixth highest in Princeton history, and 112 assists, third most in the program.
One of only two Princeton athletes ever to win an Olympic gold medal and then come back to compete for the Tigers (Bill Bradley was the other), Johnson won the C. Otto von Kienbusch and Cutino Awards during her senior season in 2017. She was the first player in Princeton women’s water polo history to be named first team All-America and third ever to be picked as All-American in each of her four seasons. Johnson finished her Princeton career with a 100-17 record, along with a school-record 1,362 saves and a .693 save percentage. She was a 19-time Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Defensive Player of the Week award winner, a four-time first-team all-conference player and the CWPA Player of the Year.
