Five Orange County girls water polo players along with Laguna Beach coach Ethan Damato will represent the United States at the 3rd FINA World Women's Water Polo Championships in New Zealand next month.

The 18-and-under tournament runs Dec. 12-18 in Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand.

The U.S. roster includes Laguna Beach senior and Olympic gold medalist Aria Fischer, Laguna Beach junior goalie Thea Walsh, Los Alamitos' junior Bayley Weber, Foothill junior attacker Val Ayala and former Corona del Mar All-County goalie Heidi Ritner, now at Michigan. Weber is an offseason transfer to Los Al from Rosary.

Damato will serve as an assistant coach on the U.S. team, which departs for the tournament Dec. 1.
