Tri-Valley girls' basketball and softball standout Juli Weber appeared in the "Faces in the Crowd" segment of the Aug. 5 edition of Sports Illustrated.

This past spring, Weber guided Tri-Valley to the PIAA Class A state championship in girls' basketball, then had one of the best softball seasons in Schuylkill League history.

The Republican-Herald All-Area Girls' Softball Player of the Year and the Pennsylvania High School Softball Coaches Association Class A Player of the Year, Weber hit .671 (55-for-82) with 37 runs scored, 30 stolen bases, seven doubles, eight triples, four homers and 27 RBIs as a senior.

Already enrolled at the University of South Florida on a Division I softball scholarship, Weber compiled a .700 on-base percentage and a 1.098 slugging percentage in helping Tri-Valley win the Schuylkill League championship and reach the District 11 Class A title game before losing to eventual state champion Williams Valley.

The "Faces in the Crowd" segment appears on Page 21 of the edition, which has Alex Rodriguez on the cover.
