PASO ROBLES — Some athletes only dream about their future and others do whatever it takes to make their dreams come true. Paso Robles High School senior Marti Rae Grois, surrounded by family and friends on Wednesday afternoon, made her dream a reality as she signed her National Letter of Intent and accepted a full-ride academic and athletic scholarship to compete in NCAA water polo at Division 1 St. Francis College, a private institution located in Brooklyn Heights, NY.

“It's like a dream, but it’s really happening,” said Grois’ mom, Miko Marley, as she looked on with pride as her daughter signed the papers. “She put her mind to it and she did it — she got the grades she put in the time and it's just been amazing I'm really proud of her.”

Grois, goalie and captain of the Bearcat girls water polo team this past season, earned second team All-League honors during her junior year, first-team All-League as a senior and was named Most Valuable Player for two consecutive years. Grois was also named MVP during two summers of attendance at water polo camp conducted by college and Olympic athletes at Fullerton College.
