Becca Melanson, Team USA Win Gold At Junior Pan American Games
Becca Melanson and Team USA earned the top finish to take home a gold medal in water polo during the Junior Pan American games held this past week in Indianapolis, IN. They defeated Canada 17-4 in the final game and were undefeated throughout the tournament.
Melanson was the top points leader (goals, assists, steals, blocks, exclusions drawn) for Team USA in two of their five contests and the top goal scorer in their game against Brazil.
Melanson will play in the Junior Olympics held next week in San Jose, California and then join back up with a US Water Polo Futures team to compete in Greece in early August.
