After its 17-4 victory at No. 14 San Jose State on Sunday, the No. 1 California men's water polo team swept the MPSF men's water polo weekly awards, the conference announced Monday afternoon.
 
Junior goalie Adrian Weinberg was named Player of the Week for the second week in a row after his performance against the Spartans. Weinberg notched 15 saves and an assist in the match, anchoring a Cal defense that held SJSU to a season-low four goals in the contest. This is the third career MPSF Player of the Week honor for Weinberg.
 
Freshman attacker Albert Ponferrada was named MPSF Newcomer of the Week, his first career conference honor. He led the Bears with five points, scoring two goals and adding three assists against San Jose State. 
 
This is the third week in a row that one of the conference awards has gone to a Cal player after Max Casabella was named Player of the Week Oct. 24. This is the first awards sweep of the season for the Bears.
 
Cal closes out the regular season Saturday at No. 4 Stanford in the annual Big Splash. The game will air on Pac-12 Bay Area.
