Aria Fischer's college decision won't surprise most water polo enthusiasts but when an Olympic gold medalist still in high school picks her future school, it's major news.

The Laguna Beach senior center has committed to Stanford, where she will join her sister and fellow Olympic champion, Makenzie Fischer, Breakers coach Ethan Damato confirmed Saturday night.

Makenzie is expected to be a freshman on Stanford's squad this upcoming season after deferring her enrollment to train with the powerhouse U.S. women's team.

Aria, meanwhile, didn't play last season at Laguna Beach as she trained with the U.S. team, capping her fast rise to prominence on the squad. She will return to the Breakers this winter.

Aria is the first reported college commitment in Orange County's class of 2017 for women's water polo.
