Senior driver Georgiana Bray of the Coyote water polo team, leaves her mark with a bundle of laughs and fun.
Bray finished off her last season scoring 22 goals, placing sixth overall on the team.
However, this was only half the number of goals she had scored when she played as a junior.
Though Bray became sick in the middle of the season, she continued to practice hard and play strong.
Even with the set back, she was able to earn the fourth overall spot for assists with 23, as well as tying with Katie Braun for third place with 28 steals.
Despite her drop in score ranking, Bray’s assists and steals have not changed since last season making her a consistent and aggressive player.
Bray came to the Coyotes last winter when she transferred from Cerritos College after playing two seasons of water polo.
Bray mentioned that she would not have gone far without the encouragement from her older sister.
Bray began swimming at a young age, so that her and her siblings could stay active, she gradually grew to a potential water polo athlete.
“I come from a smaller city, and the high school coach had a life start program,” said Bray. “When we got to high school we would know how to swim, at least the fundamentals.”
Although Bray proves to be an excellent water polo player, she has attempted to broaden her athletic abilities.
“I tried to play tennis, but I’m not a very good runner,” said Bray. “I’m a horrible runner.”
Bray may not be the best runner, but still became involved in other sports such as basketball, football, and hockey as being the one she enjoys the most.
The NHL Kings is the team that Bray cheers for with Jonathan Quick as being her favorite players.
Bray does not solely focus on playing water polo and other sports but has become a well rounded student athlete who works hard in her studies.
Bray, has big aspirations of becoming a social worker after getting her degree in Sociology and later plans on working for Child Protective Services.
When asked to explain herself in one word Bray’s lovable and bubbly attitude radiated over the phone, “Awesome, would have to be a word that can describe me the best.”
When asked if she wanted anything highlighted in the article Bray mentioned one of her teammates.
“Heather Bertram, I am so proud of her. She played for the team, made it to every practice and is graduating with honors this quarter, and I really wanted to give her thanks,” said Bray.
Although her water polo career is over Bray maintains her bubbly attitude and looks forward to this new chapter of her life.
