Today we chat with former UC Berkeley runner and current Redwood HS coach, Laura Schmitt. Many of you may know Laura in many capacities including runner, coach, and mom. Laura's children all had outstanding high school careers include Jake who graduated from University of Washington, Meagan who played Div. I. Volleyball at Cal and Caitlin who is currently attending and competing at UCLA. Laura was a tremendous competitor in high school and eventually was inducted into both the Redwood HS and Marin Hall of Fame. She is still competing and best of all, she is now joined on the Redwood HS coaching staff by her son Jake.
