Senior Rachael Carver of Laguna Beach Water Polo became the eleventh and final senior from this year’s squad to reveal her 2021 college plans as the All-Sunset Surf League player has committed to Princeton. As a junior, Carver led the team in assists and steals earning second team All CIF and All-Orange County honors. She becomes the eleventh Laguna field player to earn a college commitment for the senior class in a sport that only six field players can play at a time. The Girls Water Polo squad has won two straight D-I Southern Section CIF titles and are the favorites to “Three-Peat” in 2021.

Nicole Struss – UCLA, Emma Lineback – UCLA, Molly Renner – UCLA, Emma Singer – California, Jessie Rose – California, Imani Clemons – UCSB, Kenedy Corlett – UCSB, Skylar Kidd – Indiana, Mikayla Lopez – Loyola-Marymount, Ella Baumgarten – Marist.
Fall/Winter Sports Update
Laguna’s “Fall-Winter” high school teams continue to train for the planned season start next month but CIF also continues to caution that COVID fears may still shut down the winter season. California is only one of six states that prohibited fall sports and still has not given any idea if a winter season will be allowed.
