Chandler Luebbers '17 Signs with Occidental College

Frank Dariano
VWS Varsity Water Polo is already off to a great start, compiling an 11-4 record heading into Valle Vista League play this week. On Monday, January 16th, the Gauls had more reason to celebrate, as senior leader Chandler Luebbers ’17 officially signed to play water polo at Occidental College in Eagle Rock. Luebbers was accepted to Occidental early decision and says she will either pursue a degree in marine biology or history with a minor in political science.

Luebbers first sparked the attention of the Tigers’ water polo coaching staff in her junior year. She says she went to meet with the head softball coach, but also spoke with the water polo coach as well. “I really liked everything that he believed in and his philosophies for the game”, says Luebbers, “he asked me what I like more, water polo or softball.” Luebbers said it was then she knew where she wanted to be in college.
In a signing ceremony in Jackson Library Moday, Luebbers thanked her brother for getting her interested in water polo. “I fell in love with the sport by watching it, and watching him play…when I finally got to play it was thanks to him and my parents.”
“She’s come a long way from her freshman year when she started playing,” said Luebbers’ father Sean. He thanked Webb for allowing Chandler to be on a team “that’s really brought out the best of her, and the best of the sport.” Luebbers’ great grandmother also spoke, saying she has been “proud of her since day one.”

Luebbers then signed with Occidental surrounded by teammates, family, school faculty and staff, and Vivian Webb water polo coach Tom Jurczak.
