She later took her basketball skills to Santa Clara University where her name still dots the record book.
  • Doc Scheppler - A Burlingame High School grad, he has become one of the most prominent girls' basketball coaches in California. His Pinewood School teams have won six state titles, eight NorCal crowns and 13 Central Coast Section championships. He is a recent state Coach of the Year.
  • Peter Ueberroth - A Burlingame High School alum, he was an outstanding water polo player at San Jose State College. He later directed and oversaw the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles.
