Charlie Umansky is one of the best athletes at Estancia High.
He's played varsity water polo, basketball, track and field, swimming and even surfed for the Eagles. And he's not one to brag, but the senior is also one of the best in the classroom.
Umansky said he has a 4.67 grade-point average. He's in three Advanced Placement classes — English, U.S. Government and Macroeconomics.
"If I don't mess up, I'll be valedictorian," Umansky said. "I'm on track, I guess you could say."
The straight path is similar to the ball leaving Umansky's arm in a water polo game. Regardless of the opponent, Umansky usually finds his target in the back of the net.
The Daily Pilot Athlete of the Week has an area-best 88 goals in 20 games this year (4.4 per game) for the Eagles. He scored five in a big 9-8 victory over Saddleback last week, keeping the Eagles in second place in the Orange Coast League.
