Four tigers received All-American status: Aleksandar Petrovic made first team, and Ikko Saito, Devon Thumwood, and Engin Ege Colak received honorable mention status. Congratulations to all four, very well deserved. The program will definitely miss Petrovic's and Saito's talent and contributions. Here is the Pacific press release honoring these four: pacifictigers.com/sports/m-wpolo/2016-17/releases/20161220r1o6oz.
In recruiting news, the tigers have received a commitment from Caleb Sandberg from Righetti HS in Santa Maria, CA. Sandberg is an attacker by position, and, he is third team all- CIF-southern section. Hopefully, there will be several more names on the recruiting list for the 2017 season. Another class like the 2016 class(8 total players) would be just fine, and give the tigers depth in numbers like the Pac 12 schools. Welcome aboard Caleb, I look forward to watching you play and scoring lots of goals.
