Brown, who also goes by Christy, was also honored as one of four from Estancia who won a Les Miller Outstanding Student Award (another four from Costa Mesa earned the award). Brown, who has a 4.34 GPA, excelled in tennis and soccer. She announced she'll attend UCLA. She'll stay in the same dorm area as Knapp, the standout golfer who has pro aspirations.
Curet, who competed in football, basketball and baseball at Costa Mesa, is headed to Chapman University to play football and study business and entrepreneurship.
"I think it's important for the community," Brown said of the CMU award. "Obviously, there is a huge rivalry between Costa Mesa and Estancia. It's a blast to have that rivalry, but it's also good in the end to have a united front."
