McMaster’s Nicola Colterjohn has been chosen for the Canadian water polo roster for the Summer Universiade in Gwangju, South Korea.
Long a part of the Canadian national setup, the Marauders’ alumna will don the maple leaf once again this summer as goalie for the Canadian team.
Colterjohn made her breakthrough with the Canadian senior national team in 2013, playing in the FINA World Championships in Barcelona, Spain. Since then, she has featured at the World League Super Final, and will do so again in 2015 after being named to Canada’s team headed to Shanghai, China from June 9-14.
The Hamilton native is part of a family of water polo players, with sister Ainslie currently playing for the Marauders women’s team while brother Tristan was a rookie star for the men’s team in 2014.
The Marauder is one of only three Canadian Interuniversity Sport athletes on a FISU roster dominated by the U.S. National Collegiate Athletic Association players.
Canada will begin the tournament, which runs for 12 days, with a preliminary round match against Serbia July 2.
