Prior to the first and third place games beginning, the Jody Campbell and Maureen O'Toole Sportsmanship Awards were presented to athletes from each team competing at the Champions Cup. Campbell and O'Toole have a storied history within USA Water Polo as Campbell helped the USA Men's Olympic Water Polo Team to consecutive silver medals at the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Games while O'Toole was a key member of the USA Women's Olympic Water Polo Team that won silver at the 2000 Olympic Games, the first to ever offer women's water polo. Congratulations to all the athletes selected.
