Elena’s Grace

I recently watched this with my mother and I regret my reticence to watch it before. I was expecting a dramatic, depressing tale with a saccharine ending, but that isn’t what I got. While the movie can be heavy, and the ending is indeed cheesy, it is also packed with layers of social commentary and […]

In 1991, Ridley Scott’s Thelma & Louise proved that there was a space for women in the buddy film and road movie genres that had been largely dominated by male protagonists. Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon’s eponymous characters were well-developed, complex and life-like; their touching and authentic friendship remaining centre stage as they fought back […]

NORCO — Some softball coaches would have cringed if their star pitcher had a desire to play another sport. That was never the case for Rick Robinson with Sarah Willis. Robinson has watched many of his top players play a secondary sport over the years, so he never balked when Willis also wanted to suit up for Norco’s basketball team. “We’re in an era of extreme specialization, but I think it’s healthier for athletes to play multiple sports,” said Robinson, who recently completed his 20th season as Norco’s softball coach. “I think back to when my sister (Norco pitching coach Beth Windham) was at Corona. Being a softball pitcher was so intense and exhausting, and soccer was a sport she could just play and have fun. I think basketball was that for Sarah, and I didn’t want to deny her that opportunity.” Willis had a phenomenal junior season on the diamond, compiling a 22-1 record while also hitting in the leadoff spot for much of the season. Her dual efforts were key in the Cougars capturing the CIF Southern Section’s Division 1 championship for the second consecutive season. On the basketball court, Willis went from role player to the leading scorer, rebounder and defender for a Norco team that made the playoffs. And for that, Willis is The Press Enterprise’s 2018-19 Girls Athlete of the Year. Willis attended Ayala High School her freshman year. When she transferred to Norco for her sophomore season, she told Robinson about her aspiration to play basketball. “I have been playing basketball since the eighth grade and had such a great time,” Willis said. “It’s my ‘getaway’ sport of sorts, and I didn’t want to give that up.” Willis averaged four points and six rebounds per game during her sophomore season. The program lost Press-Enterprise’s Player of the Year Naomi Yim and Anai Washington to graduation, and standout shooter Nicole Rodriguez decided to transfer to Rosary. That meant Willis would have to step into a bigger role at both ends of the court. Proving up to the challenge, Willis averaged 11 points and 8.3 rebounds as a junior, earning Big VIII League first team honors. She averaged 17 points per game during the second round of league play. Willis also led the team with 2.8 steals per game. “She’s always been a great rebounder and defender, but now we needed that mentality from her as an offensive player,” Norco girls basketball coach Kim Kirkland said. “Sarah is such a great athlete and very difficult to stop when she is going to the basket. She’s always had the ability, and now was the time for her to show it.” Spring came, and Willis reaffirmed her status as one of the nation’s best pitchers, as nearly half of her victories came against opposing teams that were in the Top 25 of CalHiSports.com’s state rankings. She ended her junior season with a 0.82 ERA and 196 strikeouts in 153 innings. Willis also hit .350 with four home runs and 20 RBIs. Willis was at her best in the postseason, as she became the first pitcher in Norco’s storied history to not allow an earned run in the playoffs. She threw three shutouts, including a three-hitter in the 2-0 win over Great Oak in the Division 1 title game. Willis is the first pitcher to record the win in back-to-back Division 1 finals in nearly a quarter of a century (Marina’s Marcy Crouch was the prior one in 1994-95). “One thing for certain with Sarah is that she knows how to pitch in the big games,” Robinson said. “She pitched (travel ball) national championship games on that field (Barber Park) when she was young, so that moment is never going to overwhelm her.” Willis said her experience at Norco these past two years has exceeded expectations. “I have gotten to play softball with many of my best friends, and I’ve made so many more friends through basketball,” Willis said. “It’s been an amazing experience and I’m looking forward to one more great year here at Norco.”
