This is a truly sad story. Manga Santos was a member of the last national championship team in men's water polo. He was a freshman on the 2004 championship squad.
He progressed throughout his career, achieving second team all-american in his 2007 senior campaign. He scored 32 games in 28 games that season.
He was playing professionally in Italy when he was diagnosed with ALS in 2011. He fought the fight until passing away on June 24.
He is survived by his parents (how sad) and four siblings.
Here is the official website press release.
What a sad day for the UCLA community. Our thoughts are with Manga's family. Hail.
