Girls’ water polo team captain Pria Pant ’18 and wrestler Riley Ruiz ’20 won the Athlete of the Month awards for January.

Ruiz is the Mission League champion at the 128-pound weight class.
“Winning Athlete of the Month was a huge honor,” Ruiz said. “It feels great to put in hard work and get recognized by the whole school.”

Pant, the only senior on the girls’ water polo team, has led the team to an undefeated league record this season.

“As my last season playing at Harvard-Westlake, it feels great to have all the time, dedication and work I have put into the program recognized,” Pant said.
