Ethan Parrish, Hannah Meyer and Cassidy Miller of the 805 Santa Barbara Water Polo Club won medals at last week’s Union Americana De Natacion (UANA) Youth Pan American Games in Clearwater, Fla.

Parrish brought home a silver medal after the Team USA youth men's team fell short against Brazil, 8-5, in the championship game.

Meyer and Miller earned bronze medals as the Team USA youth women's team routed Puerto Rico, 21-7, to take third place in the tournament. The Americans lost to eventual champion Canada, 19-9, in the semifinals.

Both boys and girls USA teams qualified for next summer’s FINA Junior World Championships.

Meyer and Miller will be juniors at San Marcos and Parrish is entering his junior year at Dos Pueblos. 

Parrish scored twice in USA’s pool-play wins over Argentina (15-6) and Peru (19-1).  He scored once in USA’s 12-9 semifinal win over a tough Canadian team.

Meyer scored two goals and Miller had one for the U.S in the rout of Puerto Rico in the bronze-medal game.  Miller had a goal in USA’s loss to Canada and scored three in a 24-5 win over Argentina.

Miller and Meyer played on the CIF-SS Division 1 championship team for San Marcos High.

Next up for all three athletes is the 2018 National Junior Olympics in San Jose and Stanford. Nine 805 Santa Barbara Water Polo teams will compete in seven age brackets.  The boys' competition begins on July 21 and the girls begin on July 26th.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
