    Allan Hancock College track and field star Haleigh Batty is a record-breaker.
    During her freshman year at Hancock, she set new records in both the women’s long and high jumps. And after taking first place in seven of her first eight meets of the season, Batty won a Western State Conference long jump title, and she later placed third at the California Community College Athletic Association State Championships. She was the first Hancock woman to earn all-American status in track and field in nine seasons.
    Batty, who plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in either nursing or sports medicine, officially committed last week to Westmont College, where she will continue her track and field career on a scholarship.

How much trust do you have in Central Coast newspapers?

None, it's all fake news.
Some, but the reporting is biased.
It depends on the topic being covered.
A lot.
