I play water polo for Punahou School and the Oahu Water Polo Club as a attacker/driver. I have also been on ODP Hawaii teams in the Development , Cadet and now Youth groups. I’ve been playing water polo for five years. I am an attacker using my speed, quickness and arm strength to score in transition and set offense. I use my quickness and knowledge to be in the proper defensive position whether as center defender or out on the perimeter.
