ON THE WORLD STAGE – Freshman Courtney Corrin of Playa Vista set a new personal best of 21 feet in the long jump to earn the chance to represent the U.S. at the World Youth Track Championships in Ukraine later this month.

After winning a national high school title in the long jump as a freshman this season, Playa Vista track and field athlete Courtney Corrin will represent the U.S. at the World Youth Championships in Donetsk, Ukraine July 10-14.
Corrin, 15, a Harvard-Westlake School student, was selected for the team after soaring to the top mark at the World Youth Trials in Edwardsville, Ill. June 25, where she set a new personal best jump of 21 feet, setting a new girls freshman class record and a new meet record.
Corrin became the new freshman class record holder earlier in the season with a jump of 20-feet-11 at the Mt. SAC Relays and later captured the California Interscholastic Federation state title before earning the national crown.
She is one of 43 athletes, including three girl long jumpers who will compete in the Eighth International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Youth Championships in Ukraine.
The team will be led by Lee Webb of Fremont, who has served as the head boys and girls coach at James Logan High School for the past 21 years. He has led 16 athletes to individual CIF state titles and two state team titles.
Webb served as an assistant coach for Team USA at the 2011 World Youth Championships in Lille, France.
