I am asking for your consideration to nominate Zach Borsuk for "athlete of the month". He is 17 and plays on the varsity team for Aliso Niguel High School Wolverines. I have watched him put his heart and soul into the game of water polo. He inspires everyone by his constant motivation and determination, he is very well liked and was voted in by his teammates to be "captain" for Aliso Niguel Varsity Team.

Unlike other players Zach is Type I diabetic and has been since he was two years old. He has to constantly check his blood sugars while playing, keeping his blood sugar at good levels, so he can play to the best of his ability! His positive spirit motivates the other players on his team. He has shown others that anything is possible if you put your mind, body, heart and soul into it!!! Over the last four years he has been dedicated to the game of polo, he is going to continue in college, and try out for the US Team.

Over the summer he played on a club team CVAC "capistrano valley aquatics center" they qualified and competed in the 2010 S & R Sport Junior Olympics. In addition here are some other honors that Zach recently picked up:

2009 Zach was awarded the "all league award" in the South Coast League.
2009 Zach was also awarded varsity "Player of Players" for Aliso Niguel.
2008 Zach was awarded "Player of the Year" for Aliso Niguel.
Currently his team is one game out from winning the "All League Championship".

He has had an awesome four years and is always so excited to play water polo! From the bottom of my heart I really feel Zach deserves to be honored as "Athlete of the Month."
