Splashing around in the pool wasn’t Robert Gabbart’s first choice for sports, but, thanks to a friend who suggested water polo in his freshman year, he eventually gave in to the pressure and discovered that he is pretty good at the sport.

Gabbart plays baseball in the spring, but that left him open for sports in the fall and, since baseball players need to stay in condition, water polo was a good choice. It may not be the sport that he plays in college, though. “It depends on how these next years go,” he said. This year went pretty well for him, giving him a game worth remembering. His most memorable game was the last home game of the season. “I had two goals!” he said. “I was half-court.”

The lessons Gabbart has learned when he decided to join the team are ones he would share with others. “I would tell them to do it because it is a great opportunity to get in shape and meet new people,” he said.

Much of his time is spent in athletics, but Gabbart is also a member of the leadership class. If he could change one thing about Armijo, it would be that there would be less homework “because people have other things going on,” he said.

Gabbart has a little brother and he said that his father is his role model.
