ALAMEDA, CALIF. > GOLF
Na, a sophomore at Pepperdine, shot a nine-under 63 in the first round of the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown to tie an NCAA Division I record, and then went on to shoot a 72 and a 74 to win the tournament by two strokes for her second career victory. Her nine-under round (a record she now shares with four other female D-I golfers) included nine birdies and no bogeys. Na won the West Coast Conference championship as a freshman last year and was named the WCC player of the year.
MOBILE > FOOTBALL
Ostin, an eighth-grade tailback at St. Paul's Episcopal School, ran 27 times for 205 yards and three scores in his first-ever varsity start, a 36--6 win over archrival UMS-Wright Prep. He had been used only in spot duty in eight of the Saints' first 10 games and was brought in after starter Jordan Huff suffered a season-ending knee injury. The 5'7", 156-pound Ostin, who runs a 4.5-second 40-yard dash, has 118 carries for 747 yards and eight touchdowns, as well as one kickoff returned for a score, through Sunday.
LAUREN BELLINGER | SARAH STEIN
COLUMBUS, OHIO > TENNIS
Lauren (far left) and Sarah, juniors at Dublin Jerome High, capped off an undefeated season with a 4--0 run at the state Division I doubles championship, coming back after losing the first set of their final match to defeat Watterson High's Lauren Ghidotti and Katie Shepherd 0--6, 6--4, 7--6 (7--4) for the title. The next day Sarah won the second singles finals match to help the Celtics (22--0) to their first team title.
