FormerCBU Water Polo Player Signs Professional Contract
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (Aug. 19, 2015) – Eric Carnohan inked a professional contract with Water Polo Navarra of Pamplona,
Spain, on Aug. 17. It makes him the second California Baptist University graduate
to play professional water polo.
Carnohan leaves for Spain on Aug. 24th and will compete with Navarra from October to May in his first season. He was brought on board with Ruda Franco and Dusan Aleksic, who both have experience playing international water polo with their respective home countries of Brazil and Canada.
Last season, Carnohan led the Lancers to a program-best, fourth-place finish in the WWPA. He played in all 35 games and scored a second-best 67 goals for the team and assisted on 30 more, which was a team-best mark. He drew 52 ejections and swiped 25 steals. The utility finished his career with 120 goals, which rank him 15th on the program's career list, and produced 31 multi-goal games, which is 14th best.
Carnohan joins a list of elite Lancers who have played water polo on the international stage. Austen Ramer, CBU's career leader in saves with 1,129, played professionally for three years in Australia after graduating in 2012. Brandon Jung also saw plenty of playing time in the Olympics for Canada in 2008.
