Three-time Division III Eastern Championship runner-up (2007, 2009, 2011) Presidents of Washington & Jefferson College will strive to return to the title game in 2019.

Through October 24, W&J has two wins this year – both coming at home — as the program handled Monmouth (16-11 W) on September 28, 2019, in Mid-Atlantic Water Polo Conference (MAWPC)-West Region league action and acquired a 5-0 forfeit defeat of Gannon University on September 8.

The Presidents are 1-4 against the rest of the 2019 Division III Eastern Championship field with prior games against Penn State Behrend (13-9 L, September 7; 11-7 L, September 14; 9-8 L, September 22), Monmouth (16-11 W) and Connecticut College (19-11 L, October 19).

In 2019, at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md., W&J claimed Fourth Place as the team defeated Monmouth (16-10 W) before dropping a 16-6 game to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a 12-11 contest versus Penn State Behrend.

Back in 2017 at MIT, the Presidents finished in Fifth Place with a 13-3 loss to Hopkins, a 13-6 defeat by Connecticut and a 16-9 victory over Monmouth.

In 2016 at Penn State Behrend, W&J fell to Connecticut (17-14 L) prior to turning back the host Lions (19-7 L) and Monmouth (12-9 W) to clinch Third Place.

The last time Washington & Jefferson made the title game in 2011, the Presidents took down Connecticut (11-9 W) before being stopped by Johns Hopkins (21-5 L) at Penn State Behrend...W&J managed Penn State Behrend (11-7 OT W) and Connecticut (16-11 W) in 2009 at home before dropping an 18-2 contest versus Johns Hopkins in a round-robin format. W&J punched its ticket to the title game and slipped against Hopkins (24-6 W) to claim a runner-up mark.

The Presidents first made the title game in 2007 at MIT as Washington & Jefferson overcame Penn State Behrend (8-6 W) before taking a loss against the host Engineers (20-10 L) in a year Johns Hopkins did not attend the tournament.
