The very interesting case of a collegiate club water polo player making the leap to varsity status. Emily Adams, a former Capistrano Valley HS standout in the goal, completed her first year at UCLA as a key member of the Bruins’ women’s club team. She will now transfer to Brown for the 2015-16 school year. There she will both hope to further her writing career and take part in the elevated training that is part of a Division I varsity program.
In the 245 days she’s been at UCLA, Emily Adams has already constructed a diverse portfolio.
The writer has been published on the CollegeFashionista website, UCLA Club Sports’ website and in Westwind, UCLA’s student literary journal.
The goalkeeper was also featured in a third-place league finish for the women’s club water polo team while garnering second-team honors in the Pacific Coast Division. Sometimes she also dabbles in intramural water polo refereeing.
