Former St. Francis water polo player Shelby Schaefer honored

Former St. Francis water polo standout Shelby Schaefer, now playing for Colorado State, has been named first team All-Western Water Polo Association.

In three seasons with the Rams, the senior from Roseville leaves as one of the program's leading performers.

The 5-foot-6 attacker currently ranks among Colorado State's top seven in career goals, ejections drawn and total points. She recently became the school's all-time assists leader with 98.

This season, her 55 goals rank seventh in the WWPA. She has scored at least one goal in 17 consecutive games and has a team-high 37 assists for a Rams team that is 8-19 this season.

"It's definitely a huge honor," Schaefer said in a Colorado State media release. "I wasn't expecting it at all. I think it says a lot about the team. We faced a lot of adversity this season."

A 2009 graduate of St. Francis, Schaefer was a four-time all-league and three-time all-section performer in high school.

Schaefer, who swam her first season at Air Force before transferring to Colorado State, is the youngest of four standout aquatic sisters.

Valerie swam for CSU Northridge and Lindsay for Air Force. Cassie played water polo at UC Davis.

Colorado State will play Sonoma State in Friday's opening round of the WWPA Championships in Santa Clara.
