Laguna Beach’s Aria Fischer may be one of the most decorated prep athletes in the country. The Stanford-bound water polo player aided the U.S. women’s water polo team in capturing the gold medal in last summer’s Rio Olympics.

Fischer led Laguna Beach (31-0) to the CIF-SS Division 1 title by scoring a team-leading 103 goals, and she finished second to teammate Bella Baldridge in assists with 58.

Fischer owns a 4.5 grade-point average for her career at Laguna Beach. Fischer took AP classes in Physics, Spanish Literature and Calculus AB this year.

Fischer’s father Erick Fischer (pictured with SCPL host Tarek Fattal) accepted the SCPL Award on Aria’s behalf due to her being out of the country for competition.
