Lauren Wenger, who earned a gold medal in Women’s Water Polo at the 2012 London Olympics, will visit with Monterey‘s Legacy Water Polo Club on Saturday, Dec 1st at 10:00am at the Bedford Family Gym at Santa Catalina School in Monterey.
Wenger will discuss her career in water polo, from earning All-American honors in high school to her experience on the USC women’s water polo team, her international experiences, and two trips to the FINA World Championship resulting in a 2009 Gold Medal, and of course participation in both the Beijing and the London Olympics.
Following her talk, Wenger will have an open, informal conversation with local youth and other members of the community who may have questions about her start in water polo, her training, motivations, and key individuals who helped her achieve her goals. After the talk and Q & A, Lauren will be available on the pool deck for photos and to sign Olympic photo/training cards.
Legacy Water Polo is honored to host this visit and appreciates the support of USA Water Polo in making this event happen. In addition, Legacy’s primary pool for over a decade has been that of Santa Catalina, and we are grateful for use of their exceptional facility.
Cost: Suggested donation of $10/person, $25/family
Comp: All Santa Catalina students with ID
Legacy is hoping that Lauren’s visit will help to raise funds to pay for the expense of the pools that we use year-round in the program. Pool costs have gone up and we appreciate any donations or contributions
towards the cost of this amazing program.
