Roundup: Schafer highlighted by Sports Illustrated

After scoring a league-high 213 goals for the San Benito girls water polo team this fall, Caitlin Schafer, a senior, was honored in the Faces in the Crowd section of the Dec. 3 edition of Sports Illustrated.

She was highlighted after helping the Balers earn their first ever Central Coast Section playoff victory. She was also named to the All-CCS first team and signed a scholarship with Loyola Marymount University for next year. LMU is the No. 7 ranked team in the country.

Look for more on Schafer in Friday’s Free Lance.
