The Malibu Times Athlete of the Week

Jojo White

Malibu High School Senior water polo player Jojo White had 78 blocks in the team’s five games (40 in 2) at last weekend’s tournament in Coronado. White has been playing water polo since 7th grade, and said she started because her friends and family played the sport. She plays on the high school team and with her club team, the Los Angeles Water Polo Club, which won the Junior Olympics last year. White hopes to play water polo in college, which will most likely be at the University of Indiana. Her favorite movie is “Finding Nemo” and she also celebrated her 18th birthday last week.
