Before they were Olympians, they were high school standouts in Orange County.
And when they return from the Rio Olympics on Tuesday morning, they will be 2016 Olympic gold medalists.
The six O.C. products on the U.S. women's water polo player that struck gold Friday will return to Orange County on Tuesday at John Wayne Airport.
They are: Courtney Mathewson (Canyon), Rachel Fattal (Los Alamitos), Kaleigh Gilchrist (Newport Harbor), Maddie Musselman (Corona del Mar) and sisters Aria and Makenzie Fischer (Laguna Beach).
Aria is still a high school player. She is expected to play her senior season at Laguna Beach.
The six players also will be accompanied by a few of their teammates, who helped Team USA defend its Olympic title with an undefeated record at the Games.
