In just four weeks, Susannah Muno collected three trophies and made history on the beach.

Muno, who will be a sophomore at Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks, Calif.), became the first athlete to claim the "triple crown" of junior beach volleyball when she won the three major tournaments on the AAU National Tour in the same year.

The 16-year-old from Hermosa Beach, Calif., played with a different partner at each stop.

Muno teamed with Sydney Bast of Upland, Calif., to win the AAU Beach Volleyball National Championships in Hermosa Beach July 14-15. Then, playing alongside Raeanne Greisen of San Diego, Muno won the AAU West Coast Junior Olympic Games in Hermosa Beach July 28-29. This past weekend, Muno and Gianna Guinasso of Huntington Beach, Calif, won the AAU Best of the Beach in Santa Monica, Calif.
