BERKELEY - The California women's water polo team has begun its 2009 campaign with a 13-0 record, which is the best start in program history. Junior driver Remy Champion is helping the cause, scoring 14 goals and having multi-goal games four times already this season. The Palo Alto, Calif., native comes from a very athletic family - her mother, Barb is in the Cornell Hall of Fame for ice hockey and father, Craig, competed in track and field at Cornell, and sister, Haley, swam at Stanford and sister, Laurel, competed on the Cardinal water polo team. CalBears.com took a few minutes with Champion to find out more about her.
