West Seattle was well-represented in the recent East West Championship Games of water polo, held in Salt Lake City. Cori Roed reports that daughter Nicole Roed, a Chief Sealth International High School junior who competed at the championships, was invited to try out for the 12th-grade U.S. national team in California in May. She says Nicole is coached by Olympian Alison Gregorka, from the U.S. team that won the silver medal in the 2008 Olympic Games. Cori also reports that the Pacific NW 10th graders’ team took first place at the East-West Games, with its members including West Seattleite Silia Bruchal, an Ingraham High School student. The Pacific NW 12th Graders took third place.
