Freshman from Granada Hills wins City Section Division I title

Racing up the race’s final hill on Saturday morning before disappearing, freshman Sofia Abrego of Granada Hills and sophomore Miranda Schriver of Palisades were running side by side and exchanging the lead in an exciting duel at the City Section cross-country championships at Pierce College.

The next time they were seen, the 14-year-old Abrego had broken away and crossed the finish line in first place with a time of 17:33.81, establishing herself as the latest young running star in City Section Division I. Schriver, last year’s City champion as a freshman, finished second in 17:40.39.

“She’s fast,” Abrego said of Schriver. “She’s a good competitor.”

The football rosters of USC and UCLA are filled with locally produced players, so in recent years The Times has asked a cross-section of area high school coaches to predict the outcome of the annual rivalry game.

In many cases, the coach's loyalty is being tested by the question, whether because he has a player participating in the game or is a fan or graduate of one of the schools.

Considering both teams have been struggling at times, several coaches decided to be a little sarcastic in their comments.
