The Inland girls athlete of the week:
Name: Dejah Saldivar
School: Ontario Christian
Noteworthy: Saldivar scored 51 points and knocked down 17 shots from 3-point range during last week’s Ambassador League victory over Linfield Christian. The 5-foot-5 guard set a state record for most 3-pointers made in a game, breaking the previous record of 16 held by three players, according to Calhisports.com. Saldivar’s 51 points ranks second in school history, only two points shy of the record held by Jeannette Tjaarda (1977).
