Australia’s men’s team has goalkeeper Joel Dennerley and brothers Blake and Lachlan Edwards — all Trojans. Dennerley won four national titles at Southern Cal, the last three alongside Greece driver Konstantinos Genidounias.

I mean it’s always great to see Maud Megens, Paige Hauschild, I mean all the U.S. 소녀들, 각자 모두,” McKelvey said. “It’s so cool to have gone to school in the U.S. and then met so many great players, gotten the chance to play with them and now get the chance to compete against them at the Olympics.

It was an All-Stanford connection when Makenzie Fischer found Steffens for her 48th goal at her third Olympics on Friday, breaking the career scoring record for women’s water polo at the Games.

I think the biggest thing from Stanford, 알 잖아, I could take it right from their quotebook, is leave your legacy,” Steffens said after setting the record. “That’s something that stuck with me and still gives me chills to this day.
