In the past, Gavin Arroyo has considered swimming his top priority. And why not? After all, he was very good at it. Arroyo has been swimming competitively since age 6. He started competing with the Southern California Aquatics club and continued through his career at Villa Park High School. But in the last year, swimming has become Arroyo's second sport. Water polo, it seems, is paramount in his life.

When he marched in the opening ceremony, 18-year-old U.S. water polo driver Tony Azevedo couldn't help but be awed. "It was like, 'Oh, my God, I'm here. I'm talking to Marion Jones and Lindsay Davenport is sitting next to me,' " said Azevedo, a graduate of Long Beach Wilson High and one of the youngest players in the water polo tournament. "It was kind of a shock. But we had 11 days to sort things out. We're not here to meet all these people--we're here to rock and roll."

Until coming to Villa Park High School, Gavin Arroyo was only used to taking his time in the pool. As a member of Tustin's Southern California Swim Club, Arroyo specializes in such distance events as the 1,000 and 1,650 meters--long races that take endurance and require pacing. But Arroyo has been asked to pick up his pace for Villa Park's team. He has become a sprinter. "When he first started swimming sprints for us, his mom was concerned," Villa Park Coach Jeff Ehrlich said.
