OF LOCAL NOTE . . . Former Palo Alto High baseball standout Joc Pederson (Class of 2010), who signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers, spent a successful rookie season playing for the team's Pioneer League affiliate — the Ogden Raptors. While the Raptors lost the league championship to the Great Falls Voyagers, Pederson led the league in RBI and outfield assists. He also was fourth in the league in hitting (.353), second in hits, stolen bases and on-base percentage, and was third in runs scored and walks . . . Palo Alto High's Skylar Dorosin, a senior on the girls' water polo team, was one of 10 high school student-athletes from the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento area to win a Positive Coaching Alliance Triple-Impact Competitor Scholarships for exhibiting exemplary character in their sports and beyond. Charlotte-Marie Popp of Menlo-Atherton was one of the 50 finalists named last Friday. The scholarship program, sponsored by Deloitte LLP and Thrive Foundation for Youth, honored the students at a ceremony Saturday at Stanford University. The winners earned their $2,000 college scholarships for exemplifying Positive Coaching Alliance's model of the Triple-Impact Competitor.
