Plenty of local women gracing Division I water polo rosters

Original post made on Feb 5, 2010

There are at least 30 local women's water polo athletes on the rosters of various Division I schools around the country. That's counting graduates only from six area high schools. The Stanford Water Polo Club stands as the core of the water polo-rich area, with a significant tip of the hat to the NorCal Water Polo Club. Players and coaches alike have developed an appreciation of the game and honed their skills through the club level.

Its really a testament to John Tanner and Susan Ortwein and a host of
Stanford Club coaches that have developed many of these players over the
last 11 years!! And the many more that went before this group! Its not
easy to play a sport in college, better yet, be on a D1 team, and its
only been thru tremendous effort and dedication by these coaches (well
ok, the players work a little too) that the Peninsula has this kind of representation in the college ranks! The best water polo club in the region!
