Ryen Carew, who was dismissed from the Sylmar football team two weeks ago, has enrolled at Tujunga Verdugo Hills, Coach Darrin Fitzgerald said.

Carew is the top returning rusher in the City Section. He gained 2,095 yards and ran for 21 touchdowns as a junior.

Camille LeNoir, one of the top point guards in the Southern Section and a member of The Times' all-star team, has committed to Pepperdine.

LeNoir, a 5-6 senior, averaged 19.7 points with 7.6 assists, 5.6 rebounds and 3.2 steals for the Gauchos. She chose the Waves over USC and Notre Dame.

Picchetti, who was fifth in the 5-A Division final of the Texas state meet in May, has been unable to run for several weeks because of a stress fracture above her ankle, but Rancho Cucamonga Coach Mark Cushman hopes she will be able to start racing later this month or in October.
