Monthly Awards

Athlete of the Month - June 2011 Alys Williams - Huntington Beach Water Polo Club

Alys has been with HBWPC for four years, and is one of the starters on the HB 18 & Under team. Alys trains with the Youth and Junior National Teams, participates in the ODP system, and excels in club water polo along with high school water polo and swim. She is a phenomenal all-around athlete, having Division I CIF swim times to go with her incredible water polo skill.

Her coaches believe her to be one of the top five recruits in the class of 2012, and her work ethic and commitment to the sport will be rewarded by a great collegiate water polo career at a top program.

Alys has earned All-America honors at the Junior Olympics for the past two years, has won a team swim title at Edison High School in Huntington Beach, has been named to the OC Register’s All-County Team, and has earned CIF and league accolades throughout her young career.

Alys has the ability to single-handedly take over a game. Her water polo IQ is extremely high, and she has the knack to see open water and understands body positioning very well for an athlete her age. She has had exceptional performances at the past two Junior Olympic tournaments, but also commits to participating in the various tournaments throughout the year. Most recently, Alys was vital to the team's championship effort at the 2011 Mikasa Cup. She is constantly matched up on the opposition’s best offensive player and she never backs down from the challenge. She is an athlete that steps up to the level of her competition and excels, which is why we would like to nominate her for the "Athlete of the Month."
