The VMI women’s water polo team had several cadet-athletes achieve major accomplishments in the 2022 season.
Genevieve Petrassi ’22 netted eight goals in a match in late February at Grove City College, the second-most in school history. She totaled seven steals in a match the same day against Washington & Jefferson, both Keydet victories.
Sydney Shettleroe ’23 set the school record with eight drawn exclusions against Iona, the most in program history for a single match.
Ellie Pickford ’24 (biology), Makenna Moore ’22 (mechanical engineering), Caragh Osborne ’24 (psychology), Petrassi (chemistry), Katelynn Riley ’23 (modern languages and cultures), and Maddie Berry ’22 (biology) each earned spots on the 2022 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Women’s Water Polo All-Academic Team. The six were part of the 11-player team, the only VMI sport to take part in MAAC competition as an associate member. To be eligible for the MAAC All-Academic Team, a student-athlete must complete two semesters at their institution and hold a cumulative grade-point average of 3.20 on a 4.0 scale.
