Congratulations to OPRF water polo player Jordin Hale, the Midtown Athletic Club Athlete of the Week.

The junior goalie finished with 42 blocks, 18 assists and eight steals as the Huskies swept all four their matches at the Northside Prep tournament. Led by Hale and high scorer Katie Appell (17 goals), OPRF outscored its opponents 73-11. The Huskies consolidated their impressive tourney showing with a 14-4 win over Homewood-Flossmoor, improving to 6-0 this season. Hale had 11 saves and an assist against the Vikings.

Hale and Appell played in club tournaments nationwide with the Lions Juniors team, including a Junior Olympics tournament in California last August. They will participate in a regional championship tournament in Salt Lake City this month.

“I just want to be the best goalie that I can be,” Hale said. “I try to grow as a player so I can help my team as much as possible.”
