Sitdown With Spurge #1 – Vanda Baksa

Vanda Baksa is having a remarkable freshman campaign for the Arizona State Water Polo team.

She owns the single-season freshmen points record (102, previous was 84). She also owns multiple single-game records, including the most points (10) and assists (7). Click here for a full breakdown of records.

This success stems from her childhood in Budapest, Hungary. The journey to ASU in January wasn’t and isn’t easy for her, but she’s embracing each and everyday by living in the now.

‘Sitdown With Spurge’ is a new video podcast series. I will be sitting down with athletes, coaches, media members, vendors, and just about anyone around the world of sports who has an interesting story to tell. If you know someone who has gone through a very interesting life journey and want me to possibly sit down with them for a conversation, you can email me ( or message me on Twitter (@spurge_).
