Carly has a natural disposition toward catching and throwing a ball. Opposing coaches often commented on the strength of Carly's play, both in saving shots and accuracy of ball distribution. The SRHS women's water polo team finished fourth in the MCAL league this year (2011) and went to the North Coast Section playoffs for the first time in the team's history. She also is an award-winning breast stroker and was the only swimmer on her team last year to make it to the North Coast Section.
A link to an article about me:
As a goalkeeper I can see how plays are developing and where the team's strengths and weaknesses may be. I often discuss my views with the coach to help the team become stronger.
I had heard through a friend about coaching Special Olympics for swimming, which I now do every Sunday morning.
I balance my school and water polo activities every day, I ensure that my homework and school projects take priority and will, when necessary, miss a water polo practice or game if I need to study for a test or have to finish a project.
I am a volunteer at Northern California's Special Olympics and help out on a regular basis. I help disabled children learn how to swim and how to enjoy being in the water. I feel fortunate that I am in good health and I feel it is important to help others become more confident and to help them achieve their goals.
I volunteer at school to help freshmen find their way around school when they first arrive. I remember how nervous I was when I was a new student and I can appreciate how the freshmen feel. I hope that my helping them makes them feel like the school community cares about them.
I teach swimming to kids, 8 and under, in the summer, which I find very satisfying.
