My name is Niki and I am a Senior at Burlingame High School. I am 6;1" , left handed and weigh 150 lbs. I have been swimming competitively since I was 7. Freshman year I was the team captain of the JV water polo team and was awarded MVP of the team. I was also the starting goalie on the JV soccer team and team MVP. I was also on the JV swim team and was awarded second team all league status.
As a Sophomore I was a starter on Varsity water polo team. I was our second leading scorer to Charlotte Pratt, who ultimately signed with UCLA. I was voted 1st Team All-League. We finished 2nd in our league and 4th in the Central Coastal Section. Also Sophomore year, during swim season, I swam a 59.2 100 free amd a 26.9 50 free. I was awarded team MVS (Most Valuable Swimmer), and first team all league status. I played Winter and Spring Water Polo for Christ Dorst with NorCal Water Polo. Summer 2012, during Junior Olympics, my coach moved me to 2M. I had never played this position... I grew to enjoy the position and was the teams leading scorer. We finished 7th in the U16 Challenge division. I was awarded team MVP honors.
