FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- Clovis West High School senior Julianne Snyder won the 72nd annual B'nai B'rith Student Athlete Award.
"I was just honored to be up there but to find out I won, that was really, really a special moment for me and my family," she told Action News.
Snyder was a three-year varsity letter winner in both water polo and swimming (sophomore year was canceled due to COVID-19) who set the CW school record for goals.
"Some of the past (B'nai B'rith) winners I actually knew, they played swimming/water polo and I got to grow up watching them, so to finally win was an amazing feeling," she said. Next year, she plans on attending Cal Berkeley.
Sunnyside's Kristen Laus earned the Negin Award for having the highest GPA in the group (4.53).
