Janis Intoy, Women's Swimming and Water Polo, Class of 2012
What is your major?
I haven't declared one yet, but I will probably study applied and computational mathematics.
Favorite athletic moment at Caltech?
Our water polo team was on offense and we lost the ball to the defense right in front of the cage. I fought pretty hard for it, so the opposing girl tried to pass the ball back to the goalie to keep it safe.... It's obvious where this is going. I got my first collegiate goal in water polo without even touching the ball!
