Two Cardinal women set to compete at FINA world junior

 

Stanford All-Americans Jamie Neushul and Jordan Raney have been named to the USA Water Polo Women's Junior National Team roster for the FINA World Junior Championships in Volos, Greece that begin Monday.

The United States, three-time champions at the tournament, will be looking to defend their crown at the event, held every two years.

Team USA begins the competition, which runs through Aug. 23, with Mexico on Monday. Matches with Ukraine and Spain follow.

Neushul's older sister, Kiley, just completed a successful season with the senior national team.

Raney and Neushul both earned spots on the ACWPC All-America honorable mention squad this season. Raney, the MPSF Newcomer of the Year, set a league record by bringing home five MPSF/Kap7 Newcomer of the Week awards in 2015.

Neushul, who was also an honorable mention All-American as a freshman in 2014, scored 28 times, including two hat tricks as part of nine multi-goal efforts.

The elder Neushul and fellow grad Ashley Grossman, also three-time NCAA champions, helped the United States to gold at the 2013 FINA Junior World Championships, which also took place in Volos.

Grossman scored 12 times while Neushul found the net on 11 occasions during USA's perfect 6-0 run to the gold medal. Senior Gurpreet Sohi also participated, helping Canada to a ninth-place finish.
