Gunn's Anderson will make it a water polo family affair at SCU

It was only two year ago that Elizabeth Anderson was a sophomore playing alongside her senior sister, Jenny, on the Gunn girls' water polo team. Those two will be reunited for the 2012-13 season at Santa Clara University.

Elizabeth Anderson made the reunion plans a reality by signing a national letter of intent with the Broncos.

"We are very excited to have Elizabeth join our team next year," said SCU women's coack Keith Wilbur. "She is one of the top players in this area and she has an excellent all-around game. She is fast, has a great outside shot, good game sense, and she is a strong post-up player in front of the cage."

Anderson's versatile skill set made her a standout in the high school ranks. At Gunn, Anderson earned team MVP in her freshman, junior and senior years.

She was also recognized by the SCVAL De Anza Division with first-team all-league honors following all four prep seasons, including being named the MVP this past season.

Already with one All-Central Coast Section first-team to her credit, Anderson hopes to add another such honor to her resume when the awards are announced this upcoming week.

In addition to the accolades while representing Gunn, Anderson also honed her skills at the club level.

"Elizabeth has gained valuable experience from playing with the Stanford Club team. They consistently compete against the top club teams in the country," said Wilbur. "I believe Elizabeth is going to do very well in college, and we are looking forward to her becoming a Bronco."
