Andrea Victoria playing water polo for Colorado State University

Last Night I had the privilege of watching one of our own Team Weston Swimmers play water polo at the EPIC Center Pool in Fort Collins Colorado. What impressed me so much was to watch a young lady who was a stand out player for St.Thomas High School take a different role as a player on a mature team of veteran players. Andrea was a shooting star at St. Thomas, and now she is playing defense for her college team. This shows me that Andrea has accepted her role to be a TEAM player. It shows me that her level of maturity is at a high level, she plays with little complaining and gives her all throughout the entire game. Her coach has been giving her a good amount of playing time considering that she is a freshman.

What really impressed me was to watch her Mom and Grandmother who traveled over 2100 miles  cheer for her in the teams first home game. As I wrote about earlier parents are wonderful supportive people.

  1. You couldn’t have said it better! It also is worth mentioning that the skills, the endurance, and the years that she put in to the pool as a swimmer helped make her a BETTER waterpolo player. See, swimming can lead you anywhere!
