Annika Dries of the 2014 NCAA Champion Stanford women's water polo team was selected as the Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of May 5-11.
Dries scored a team-high eight goals and was named National Collegiate Championship Tournament Most Valuable Player as No. 1 Stanford went 3-0 to capture its fourth NCAA title and third in four years. The Laguna Beach native posted a hat trick in Sunday's 9-5 title-game victory over No. 2 UCLA, and throughout the tournament provided strong defense at the 2-meter spot. That defense helped hold UCLA scoreless over the game's final 16:24 as Stanford went on a 7-0 game-ending run.
The honor is the first of Dries' career and the second of the season for the women's water polo team.
Also nominated: Scott Buttinger (men's track & field), Cami Chapus (women's track & field), Alexandra Crerend (lacrosse), Caroline Doyle (women's tennis), Zach Hoffpauir (baseball), Robert Stineman (men's tennis), Tylyn Wells (softball).
