UC Irvine senior two-meter man Tim Hutten has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious Peter J. Cutino Award, given annually to the outstanding male and female collegiate water polo players in the nation as voted by the coaches of the Division I universities. Hutten, who was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation’s Player of the Year, scored 75 goals this season and led the nation with an average of 3.75 goals per game. He received this year’s “Vellekamp Award” scholarship at UCI. The Cutino award honors the late Peter J.
