A personal note from my Head Coach:
KC is a fantastic young athlete. She joined our West Albany High School (WAHS) team her senior year. She was used to being the big fish in a little pond at her old school and when she transferred to WAHS she made the adjustments needed to be a great team player. WAHS needed a hole defender, secondary hole set and a person who could handle the ball. KC became all of that for us. She helped lead the team to a third place finish at the 5A State Tournament.
KC caught the eye of other coaches in our league as well as our state. Coaches in our league voted her to the 1st Team All-League and the other state coaches voted her to 2nd Team All State. KC earned the "coaches award" from her own coaches because she was a player who gave up her desires to take on the needs of the team (shut the other teams’ best hole players down).
KC’s stats for the year were 20 goals, 50 steals, and 42 assists with only 15 turnovers. That is a good year since I will not allow my team to blow out an opponent.
Rob Romancier – Head Coach WAHS Water Polo
Senior year: I played varsity on a 5A team that went undeafed in conference and league play. Most of our wins were against 6A high schools. I ended my senior year with our team finishing third in state. I was selected for first team all league recognition. After the State of Oregon tournament; I was selected All State 2nd Team and Coaches' Award winner.
Junior year: Varsity, Team Captain, Defensive Player of the Year with 12 Bls and 62 Stls
Sophmore year: Varsity letter, Team award for Most Inspirational, 13 Steals.
My sophomore year I competed in water polo for the first time. Also, that year was the inaugural year for our high school water polo program. I am a founding member of the South Albany Water Polo Program.
During the summer of 2008 I had the opportunity to play for Willamette Valley Water Polo and coach Steve Sessa. Also, I attended the Terry Schroeder camp at Pepperdine.
The following year (my junior) South Albany water polo actually qualified for state. We placed fifth with only 7 ladies on the team. During this season I had the pleasure of not only leading my team as a captain but to also be assistant coach.
I did transfer to a different high school for my senior year. I now attend West Albany high school.
As a sophomore and certainly as a junior I never left the pool for entire matches.
Currently, I am a senior attending West Albany High School in Albany, Oregon. I have many family and friends that support me and cheer me on! I am the big sister to a brother named Logan. I am a committed student that works hard in my academics but also enjoys the social aspects of school. People tell me that I am a good friend and I am complimented often on my citizenship at school and in the community. I plan on attending college and currently I want to be mental health therapist.
