The Brahamas sophomore uncorked a powerful effort in the the CIF Southern Section Division 1 track and field finals in the 800 meters on Saturday. She proved to be too much in winning (2:11.98) while running the fastest time for a sophomore in the state this season.

Sarah Schneider

On the road in the opening round of the CIF-SS Division 4 playoffs, Sierra Canyon’s Sarah Schneider delivered a stellar performance from the plate going 3-for-3 with two home runs and three RBIs.
