Angelica Ponce
St. Anthony

The senior tossed a pair of one-hit shutouts in respective 27-0 and 8-0 wins over St. Bernard and St. Genevieve to close out the regular season. In the first game, she hit for the cycle and notched 12 RBIs and returned to dominating in the circle later in the week with 15 strikeouts on senior day.

Susannah Laster
Pasadena Poly

Laster played a huge role in helping Pasadena Poly capture the CIF-Southern Section Division 3 girls swimming title at Riverside Community college by winning two individual events and swimming legs on two winning relay teams. Laster won the 200 freestyle in 1:50.72 and she won the 100 backstroke in 56.76. She also won first-place medals as part of the 200 medley and 400 free relays teams. It was Pasadena Poly’s second consecutive girls swimming title.

Kat Ung

Redondo did not know if Kat Ung would return to form before the season was over after spraining her pitching elbow. But after a week of rest, Ung returned for Redondo’s regular-season finale and tossed a two-hit shutout with 13 strikeouts in a 2-0 win over rival Mira Costa to give the Sea Hawks a share of the Bay League title.

Kiana Pancino

The senior pitcher notched four wins in the circle last week. Pancino tossed three complete games, including a four-hit, 10-strikeout shutout win against Marina in a third-place play-in game on the final day of the regular season.

Megan Martin

With the Citrus Belt League title on the line, Martin had a big week. In a sweep of second-place Redlands East Valley that gave Yucaipa its second straight undefeated league season, Martin went 3 for 7 with two doubles, a home run, two runs scored and three RBIs.

Kenisha Liu

The UCLA-commit had quite the meet at the CIF Division 2 competition over the weekend at Riverside Community College, winning two individual events and helping the 400 free relay to a second-place showing. Her first record-breaking effort came in the 100 free, where she recorded a 49.26 to break her own mark for the third time in a year. It also gave her a third straight CIF title in that event. She also set a meet record of 1:45.89 in winning the 200 free. Her big performance helped the Bulldogs to a sixth-place team finish.

Mackenzee Clements

Clements pitched two strong outings for the Terriers last week, helping RHS clinch a playoff spot. In a 1-0 loss to Carter, Clements went seven innings, allowed zero earned runs, gave up six hits and struck out nine. The junior came back with another solid game, picking up a victory in a must-win game and striking out six. Clements is currently third in ERA (1.90) in the league and second in strikeouts (72).
