After a third-place showing in the Oranges Empire Conference (OEC) and reaching the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) Southern California Regional playoffs, the Riverside City College men's water polo team saw a trio of athletes be named to the OEC All-Conference list. Freshman driver Bo Loftin (Mira Loma, CA) and sophomore driver Tyler Strabel (Lake Elsinore, CA) hauled in First-Team All-Conference laurels, while freshman driver Alexis Gutierrez (Mira Loma, CA) earned Second-Team All-Conference honors.
Loftin was a staple for the Tigers during his inaugural season as he was tied for first on his squad in goal with 45. His season-high goal count came in a 16-9 victory over Modesto. He scored two or more goals in 12 contests and scored four or more goals in four games. He began the season on a nine-goal scoring streak that established him as a strong offensive weapon. He spread the love as well by dishing out 22 assist. Defensively, he was a reliable tool by pocketing 33 steals and recording four blocked shots. Additionally, Loftin was named to the Southern California All-Region team with All-American Distinction.
Strabel shared the top spot in goals with 45 scored and found the back of the net in all but five games. He scored two or more goals in 15 games and recorded a trio of four-score games, all in which acted as victories. He was second on the team in steals with 42 and recorded five steals in a pair of games.
Gutierrez rounds out the award winners after ranking fourth on the team in goals with 33. He netted a career-high five goals in a victory over American River early in the season. Furthermore, he dished out 26 assists and snagged 29 steals.
