Accomplishment: Schneider won the De Anza Division title Thursday by covering the 2.95-mile Crystal Springs course in 15 minutes, 43.9 seconds -- the fastest time of the day between the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League's two divisions. Schneider hadn't distinguished himself until winning the Ram Invitational at Westmoor on Sept. 25 and the Monterey Bay Invitational on Oct. 15. He hasn't lost since. ``He's dedicated to the sport,'' Fremont Coach Pat Lawson said. ``He did his running over the summer, and now it's all coming together.''
