Coming off another successful campaign that saw her lead the Cal State East Bay water polo team to its best finish at WWPA Championships, Claire Pierce was named to the Capital One Academic All-District Women's At-Large First Team for the second time in as many years on Thursday. A two-time All-American, Pierce collected the honor after becoming the team's all-time leading scorer and repeating as an All-WWPA First Team selection.
Not just a star in the water, Pierce has been one of the top students on the water polo team throughout her career, earning a 3.78 cumulative grade point average. A kinesiology major, Pierce is also a two-time WWPA and ACWPC All-Academic and joins women's soccer player Tenaya Davis as the only two Pioneers to earn Academic All-District honors this season. With the honor, Pierce also becomes eligible to collect Capital One Academic All-America recognition later this month.
Way to go, Claire!
