Dominic Hummel has played water polo for only three years, calling the sport a "totally new subject." It's safe to say he's a quick learner.
The Tokay High School freshman recently earned a trip to a Olympic Development Program junior national team training camp, which will take place during Memorial Day weekend in Orange County. He was chosen after participating at a regional tournament this past weekend in San Diego, which brought together the best prospects in the Under-16 age group from around Northern California and Hawaii.
