Our honoree this month is another player turned referee that has a true passion for the game and has turned to wearing the whites to continue to give back to the sport that she has loved her whole life.

Leigh is a long time player who has competed and trained with the Women's National Team and continues to play at the Masters level having most recently competed in the USA Water Masters Championships earning a Gold Medal and All American Honors.

Leigh has taken her talent and love for the game to the deck as referee and has been taking advantage of just about every opportunity that has come her way to develop her skill and aptitude as a referee.

Although relatively new to officiating, Leigh has made herself available for numerous ODP events, dozens and dozens of age group tournaments in her "home" Central California Zone, and has traveled many times at her own expense outside Central California to gain invaluable experience and training as she continues her professional growth.

Her hard work and dedication had paid off as she continues to be afforded more and more opportunities to develop her skills and was most recently selected to whistle at the US Open of Water Polo in Atherton, California.

USA Water Polo is proud to have Leigh in the ranks of our referees.

We look forward to her continued participation and development as a referee in what we are sure will prove to be a very bright future.
