Arroyo Grande water polo club players received a special treat on Monday night. Elsie Windes, a U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist, put on a free clinic for the girls.
Windes helped the U.S. women's water polo team win its first-ever Olympic Gold Medal in London. The two-time Olympian wanted to pass on some techniques and motivate the girls to pursue their dreams, whatever they may be.
"You know maybe inspire some of them to pursue athletics in college or beyond that with the national team, just inspire them I guess," said Windes.
Elsie was a teammate in London of Central Coast native Kami Craig, who played at Santa Ynez and Santa Barbara High Schools.
"It is a dream, but it makes it seem it is possible, like it's something that I could accomplish if I really set my mind to it," said Arroyo Grande High senior Alexis Elias.
The clinic was part of a program put on by the USA Water Polo program.
