He captured the 106-pound titles at...

After injuries derailed the greater part of her junior season, it was a pretty good bet that the Panthers' All-American wing was going to come out for her senior year with a major chip on her shoulder. In fact, the St. Mary's team as a whole is playing as if it has something to prove — perhaps that it's a major state title contender.

The middle blocker helped the Grizzlies to a California Interscholastic Federation Division I State Championship and a perfect 45-0 record.
