BALTIMORE, Md. -- Johns Hopkins University water polo goalie Jeremy Selbst (Jr., Old Greenwich, Conn./Greenwich) has been named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America At-Large College Division Third Team. He is the first JHU water polo player to earn Academic All-America honors and becomes the 14th Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) varsity male student-athlete to earn the award in the history of the conference.
Selbst earned Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) Second Team All-America honors after leading Hopkins to its 12th Division III Eastern Championship and third-place finishes at the ECAC and Southern Division Championships. He started all but two games in the goal for the Blue Jays and finished the season ranked fourth in the nation (among all divisions) in saves with 289. Selbst also notched 16 assists and led the team in steals with 90. He is just the fourth goalie in the history of the program to earn All-America honors.
Outside of the pool, Selbst also excels in the classroom. He is majoring in both economics and psychology with a minor in business and boasts a cumulative GPA of 3.57. He has twice been named a Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) and ACWPC Scholar-Athlete. Selbst is currently interning with the FBI on an advertising and marketing campaign and is also completing an internship with JukeBox Television. This summer, he will intern as an analyst at T. Rowe Price.
Overall, he is one of three men's water polo student-athletes to earn Academic All-America honors joining fellow CWPA institution Brown University goalie Kent Holland (Third Team - University Division) and the University of Redlands Ryan Floersch (Second Team - College Division) in garnering notice.
The At-Large Team is comprised of male athletes in fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis, volleyball, water polo and wrestling to mark the largest Academic All-America division in the program.
