There is very likely going to be a race this season to see which one of two players is going to break the Cal-Hi Sports state record for most home runs in a career.

The current record of 60 was set in 2015 by Tannon Snow of Chino Hills, which was achieved when she also mashed the state single season record of 28 in her senior season. In that same season, legendary Mission Viejo slugger Alyssa Palomino also ended her career with 58 homers, a mark that was tied the following season by Kailla Searcy from Paraclete of Lancaster.

It requires any challenger for Snow’s record to be hitting home runs as a freshman and both Sofia Mujica from Granite Hills of El Cajon and Dani Jackman from University Prep of Victorville did just that.

Mujica was, in fact, one of the top players period in the CIF San Diego Section as a freshman and debuted in the 2021 season (which was the one after the COVID-shortened 2020 season). She clubbed 17 homers and batted .512 with 30 RBI. Sofia followed up with 15 homers in her sophomore season and kept cranking them out last season with 15 more. Last May, Mujica broke the CIF San Diego Section record of 41 that was set in 2008 by Oceanside’s Trina Harrison with her 42nd.

Even before she broke the section record, Mujica had committed to national powerhouse UCLA. She signed her letter of intent with the Bruins in November. One of her goals before heading to college is to break Snow’s state career record and she would need just 13 to tie and 14 to break it as a senior.

It’s not as simple, however, as Sofia hitting 14 homers to become the state’s all-time home run queen.

While Jackman plays at a very small school program and is not going to be on any Class of 2024 recruiting lists, she has been ripping homers for her team for three seasons as well and started the 2024 season just three round-trippers behind Mujica’s career total. Jackman had 10 homers in her freshman season and then blasted 19 as a sophomore with 15 more as a junior. She’s also already hit two home runs in her first three games of this season for a career total of 46 (just one behind Mujica).

For small schools like University Prep, reported stats to MaxPreps have to be double-checked to see if they make sense and for Jackman they do. The totals are being accepted. The competition is questionable of course (compared to teams that Granite Hills and Mujica plays) but we’ve never added asterisks or split up state records according to small schools or large schools. We just put the totals out there and let others debate legitimacy.

It could be a situation in which one of the two girls sets a new state record and then has that record broken by the other girl one, two or three weeks later. It could even be days apart.

Jackman also is in line to break the state career RBI record. She had 76 in each of the last two seasons, which also are two of the top five single season totals in state history. Jackman started this spring with 207 RBI for her career in 71 games. The state record of 238 was set in 2018 by Mila Rodriguez from Millennium of Tracy.



In the 2022 season, the final No. 1 state ranking and a race to lead the state in team home runs came down to St. Francis of Mountain View and Oaks Christian of Westlake Village. The Lancers ended with 58 homers (5th best in state history) and also edged the Lions (53 homers) for the final top ranking.

Last season, St. Francis was much more of a pitching-dominated squad while Oaks Christian pounded long balls at an even higher rate. Neither team finished No. 1 in the state as Hollister emerged victorious in the CIF NorCal Open Division final. The Lions, however, perhaps had more of a consolation honor as they broke the state record for most homers by a team in one season with 68.

Playing with heavy hearts to start the season under new head coach Cheyenne Coyle after the death of previous head coach Pete Ackermann (one of the winningest head coaches in state history), Oaks Christian’s 68 homers surpassed the previous all-time state best of 65 set in 2016 by Etiwanda.

Senior Anahi Arreola, a first team all-state slugger who is now at Cal State Monterey Bay, led Oaks Christian with 20 homers. That total also gained her a spot on the individual list. Arreola also had 60 RBI. For her career, Anahi finished with state record book qualifying totals of 45 homers and 166 RBI.

Returning standout Ilove’a Brittingham was second on the team in homers with 13 (which just missed the record book) while junior third baseman Rylee McCoy was right behind with 11. McCoy also had a game in which she made the record book by driving in 10 runs while going 6-for-6 in a 27-1 win against Calabasas. Brittingham has signed to play next at BYU. McCoy is heading to Oregon.
