Gilroy’s Jackson earns college water polo honor

Virginia Military Institute women’s water polo star Caitlyn Jackson, who was raised in Gilroy, was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week on Monday.
Jackson, a freshman center defender from Archbishop Mitty High in San Jose, scored six goals in her college debut, a 12-10 win over Notre Dame College in the Salem International tourney Saturday at Salem, W.Va., to tie for the third-most goals in a single game in program history.
Jackson has helped the Keydets open the season 3-1, the best start in program history.
