FORT COLLINS, Colo.--The Colorado State women's water polo team added depth to its 2013 roster with the addition of Megan Richardson. The current senior at Hemet High School signed with the Rams last week.
"I'm excited to be a CSU Ram," she said. "I've always had the interest and desire to play at a higher level, and CSU is giving me that opportunity. It will be a cool experience to play in Colorado and see somewhere new and different from California."
Richardson is a four-year letterwinner in both water polo and swimming. During her senior season, she led her team to the second round of the CIF, and was named league MVP, in addition to second-team all-area. She also played volleyball her freshmen year.
Born in Murrieta, Calif., Richardson grew up in Hemet. Her older brother, Jacob (20), is in the U.S. Coast Guard. Her parents are Eric and Jennifer.
Richardson plays club for Elite Water Polo. She will be a utility player at CSU.
"We're excited to have Megan as part of our Ram family," coach Mike Moody said. "She is a great player, and her work ethic and character add everything we're looking for. We're really happy to have her on our team."
Richardson is the second signee for the 2013 season, joining Ariel Arcidiacono, who committed in November.
