Monte Vista High incoming senior Maggie Steffens was named USA Today’s Athlete of the Week after helping the U.S. national water polo team win the FINA World League Super Final title last weekend.

Steffens, the only high school player on the national team roster, made the team’s fifth and final penalty shot in a shootout to give the U.S. a 12-11 win over Australia in the championship game.
