Winning Numbers: It was a two-horse race this week between Hannah Nance (San Dimas) and Micheletta Forbus of Indian Springs, tallying more than 18,500 votes combined. But it was Forbus’ 10,057 votes that gave her the right to be named the SoCal Prep Legends Girls Athlete of the Week!
Forbus, who also made CIF-SS Finals in the 100 meters, really excelled in the long jump. It was in that event that Forbus jumped 18 feet, 6 1/4 inches, winning the Division 3 title at Cerritos College on the second-best jump tiebreaker. The performance also advanced her to the CIF-SS Masters Meet. It is the second straight year she qualified for Masters in the event.
