Winning Numbers: The Santa Clarita Valley is a very tight-knit community, which could be a reason why Hart’s Alyssa Schultz tallied almost 50,000 votes. The senior’s accomplishments are what warrant the SoCal Prep Legends Girls Athlete of the Week selection, not just the votes.
Schultz emerged as a triple champion at the Foothill League finals to help Hart reclaim the team title. Schultz captured titles in the 200-yard and 500-yard freestyles and then swam a stellar opening leg for the winning 400-yard freestyle relay team that clinched the league title in the final event of the day.
