Encinitas water polo players earn athletic awards


Army and Navy Academy’s Athletic Director, Byrd Milic, recently announced the recipients of the Fall 2015 Athletic Awards for Cadets participating on the cross country, football, and water polo teams.

Awardees include:

Tristan Johnson of Encinitas: Varsity water polo

Austin (Max) Grice of Encinitas: Junior varsity water polo

“It is easy for young athletes to think solely about their own performance,” said Milic. “Our athletes at Army-Navy realize that being part of a team requires thinking about and respecting one’s teammates. This respect carries beyond the football field, pool, and cross country course. Respect carries into the classroom and social settings. It was with grade pride that so many of our athletes were honored at the fall sports banquet for not only their success as athletes but also for their success in the classroom as students.”
