ROUNDUP : MONTCLAIR PREP'S FREEDMAN SETS HOME RUN RECORD.
Montclair Prep's Tamra Freedman became the Southern Section all-time leader in home runs Thursday when she hit her 28th and 29th in a 24-0 softball win over host La Sierra.
Freedman passed Glendale's Jenny Dalton, who hit 28 home runs from 1990 to 1992.
``Oh my God, it's the best feeling,'' said Freedman, who has signed a national letter of intent with Texas. ``It feels so great.''
Freedman, though, had better watch out, because Sierra Vista's Brenda Iglesias entered this week with 26 career home runs.
