JESSICA SHOPIRO
Illpolo.com's All-Illpolo Team


Jessica Shopiro helped Stevenson finish second in the state in 2005 in her junior year. She was named to the All-State second team at the end of the season and was also selected to the All-Illpolo third team for her performance as well. We asked Jessica the following questions in an exclusive Illpolo.com interview:

College choices, major, current GPA?

I am undecided on the college I want to go to. I want to major in elementary education.

My current GPA is around 3.4

 

Experience, Club Team, Zone Teams, Off-season work?

 

I played for NIPC two years before I was in high school. I am also on the Midwest Zone team.
 

When did you start? How? Where?

 

When I was 12, I went to a camp and was introduced to water polo. I had already heard about it because I was on a swim team for 4-5 years before that. When I returned from camp, I joined NIPC and started playing there.

 

Awards and achievements?

 

I made 2nd team All-State, All-Conference, and All-Sectional this year.

 

Personal interests? Music? TV shows?

 

I love reggae and classic rock. I love to go fishing and go to Wisconsin. I never watch TV unless there is a SOX game on.
 

Goals for the future with polo? School? Life?

 

I would love to be a coach and a teacher after I graduate college.

 

Motivation, inspiration?

 

My motivation comes from my team. When i really want to win, I want to win for my team. My dad plays a big role in my inspiration. He gives the best inspirational speeches.
 

First Season role?

 

First season I was the JV set.


Soph, Junior year roles?

 

Sophomore: I started occasionally and became a driver. Junior: Starting varsity driver

 

Other Comments?
