Whitelegge to Compete with Team USA at UANA Championships

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – UC Santa Barbara water polo player Chris Whitelegge will represent his country as a member of the USA Junior National Team next week at the UANA Championships.

The tournament, which has formerly been known as the Pan American Championships or Americas Tournament, will take place in Montreal, Canada.

Whitelegge has been a member of the USA Junior National Team for the past three years and will be the team's starting goalkeeper as it goes for gold in Montreal.

The freshman goalkeeper, who redshirted the 2011 campaign for UCSB, will begin his first season on the Gauchos' active roster this fall. UCSB kicks off the 2012 season at the UCLA Tournament the weekend of Sept. 1-2.
