Twelve-year-old Malibu resident Angie Drake won a gold medal at United States Water Polo Junior Olympics at Stanford University on Aug. 3.

Drake attended Juan Cabrillo Elementary School and is now entering seventh grade at Malibu Middle School.

Drake plays for both the Malibu 13-14-year-old youth water polo team coached by Hayden Goldberg and the Santa Barbara 12-year-old girls water polo team coached by Chuckie Roth.

The Santa Barbara girls won gold at the Junior Olympics.

The local water polo community cheered Drake on as the championship game was streamed live online.

Since returning from Stanford, Drake attended Pepperdine’s annual youth water polo camp with Terry Schoeder and Merrill Moses.
