Rita Keszthelyi (water polo - Hungary)

Posted: July 26, 2012

Future 2012 Sun Devil Rita Keszthelyi (water polo - Hungary) has yet to hit the pool for a game in a Sun Devil uniform, but her performance on the international scene should have fans excited for a prospect. The incoming freshman for the 2013 season was named the Player of the Tournament at the 2011 Junior World Championships in Italy.  Keszthelyi’s squad came just short of winning the world title in an 11-9 decision against Spain. Even so, Keszthelyi was named the Player of the Tournament after notching 13 goals in the tournament, one of which was the deciding goal in an overtime victory against Russia that sent the team to the finals. The final goal was part of a four-goal effort from the youngster in that particular game. Despite signing in spring of 2011, Keszthelyi remained in Hungary through the 2012 season to train with the Hungarian National Team in preparation for this year’s Olympics.
