BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- The Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) has released the 2011 Men's National Collegiate Club Northwest Division schedule.
The six-team division of Oregon State University, Portland State University, Seattle University, University of Oregon, University of Washington and Western Washington University will play a pair of regular season tournaments to set the field for the division championship tournament on October 29-30 at the Osborn Aquatic Center in Corvallis, Ore. with a berth to the National Collegiate Club Championship at stake.
Regular season play will commence on October 1-2 as the six teams will converage on the Amazon Aquatic Center in Eugene, Ore. for a 12-game tournament. Following two weeks off, the squads will trek to the Osborn Aquatic Center for a another 12-game tournament to conclude regular season play and bring on the postseason.
In the history of the division, Oregon and Washington have been the predominant powers combining to capture 12 of the 13 previously contested championships. However, history could be changed this year as seven-time champion Washington (2009, 2006, 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1998) and Oregon (2010, 2008, 2007, 2005, 2004) may face a challenge from 2003 champion Oregon State, which narrowly fell to Oregon 13-11 in last year's title tilt at Osborn.
