WOODLAND, Calif. - Seniors Jacob Murphy and Ben Hohl of the UCLA men's water polo team have been named first-team and second-team All-MPSF selections, respectively, as announced by the conference office on Tuesday.

In addition, senior Emilio Vieira, junior Cullen Hennessy and freshman Cristiano Mirarchi each were named honorable mention All-MPSF selections.

Murphy was one of nine first-team selections, finishing his senior campaign with 25 goals and a team-leading 39 earned exclusions. Hailing from Corona del Mar, Calif., Murphy secured All-MPSF acclaim for the first time in his career. He scored in 16 matches this fall, including five of the Bruins' final six games.

Hohl was among eight second-team All-MPSF honorees, leading UCLA with 42 goals in 23 games. Hohl's 1.83 goals per game average ranked ninth among MPSF field players. The resident of Atherton, Calif., tallied 12 assists and led UCLA with goals in 18 matches (13 multiple-goal games). Hohl gained All-MPSF acclaim for the second consecutive season (second-team selection in 2009).

Vieira, Hennessy and Mirarchi were three of the conference's 14 honorable mention All-MPSF selections. Vieira finished his second season at UCLA with eight goals, a team-leading 17 blocks and 16 steals. Hailing from Sao Paulo, Brazil, Vieira transferred to UCLA in the summer of 2009 after two years at Golden West College in Huntington Beach, Calif.

Hennessy secured honorable mention acclaim for the second consecutive year. The native of Fairfax, Calif., finished his junior season with 21 goals, the sixth-highest total on the team. Hennessy led the Bruins with 13 assists and registered 11 steals.

Mirarchi was among the conference's top freshmen, finishing his rookie campaign with 35 goals, second most on the team. In 24 matches, he averaged 1.46 goals per game, the 17th highest mark among MPSF field players (fifth-highest among freshmen). Mirarchi also added 10 steals and six assists.

USC junior goalkeeper Joel Dennerley was named the MPSF Player of the Year. Pacific freshman attacker Balazs Erdelyi secured MPSF Newcomer of the Year acclaim, and USC's Jovan Vavic was named the MPSF Coach of the Year.

UCLA finished the season with a 19-6 overall record and fourth-place finish in the MPSF Tournament.
