Print Friendly, PDF & Email Total Timeless 7 Team

BRIDGEPORT, Pa. — Princeton University alumna and United States National Team goalie Ashleigh Johnson adds another accolade to her litany of honors as she garners recognition on the Timeless Total 7.

Every year, the site’s Total Player vote produces a dream team – the Total 7. This time around, a spot in the Total 7 roster has become more significant than ever before, featuring the best of the new millennium so far. To honor the great talents of the last 20 years, the site extended the roster beyond the starting 7 to feature a full water polo team roster, producing the Gold (starting seven) and Silver (extended roster) Total 7.

The 2019 Swimming World Female Water Polo Player of the Year and a four-time Player of the Year selection during the decade of 2010-to-2019, Johnson has been arguably the best water polo player on the planet as she helped her squad capture gold at the 2019 FINA Worlds.

The 2017 Princeton graduate is among only two Tigers’ athletes ever to win an Olympic gold medal (in 2016) and then come back to compete at Princeton (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 selected  All-America 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.

Johnson is among four current/former United States athletes to make the Total Timeless 7 Gold Team joining Total Player 2020 Maggie Steffens (Stanford University ’17), Melissa Seidemann (Stanford ’13) and Brenda Villa (Stanford ’03).
