McKenna Imset ’21, water polo red-shirt junior, added another award to her resume June 4 after being named as an honorable mention to the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches All-American Team.

Imset is the third Keydet in program history to achieve All-American status. Izzy French ’20 was an honorable mention in 2020, as was Shelby Barkley ’18 in 2018.

Imset earned first-team All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference honors this spring after leading the team with 50 goals in just 12 games and was a two-time MAAC Offensive Player of the Week. In only 55 games, she ranks fifth in school history with 183 career goals.

The University of Southern California claimed the top two honors, as Maud Megens earned Player of the Year honors and Marko Pintaric was voted Coach of the Year.
