Each week of the school year, Murrieta 24/7 honors top student-athletes at Murrieta Mesa High School. The coach of each varsity sport is allowed to select one athlete based on the previous week's performances or on potential shown by the athlete. Here are this week's Murrieta Mesa High School Athletes of the Week:

Sophomore Hayley Siegfried swept both her matches against Hillcrest High and Paloma Valley last week for the girls tennis team.

"Hayley is the one to watch this season," said her coach, Lisa Laney. "We have very high hopes for Hayley as she pursues her position as the number one singles player and team captain. Hayley loves the game of tennis and has been playing for several years."

Joseph Bernal got off to a fast start for the boys water polo team. His coach, Audra Woods, said, "I chose Joseph for my Player of the Week because not only did he statistically have an awesome week, he's also a great team player. He works hard and it shows when we play our opponents."

Junior kicker Mateo Thompson broke his own school record by kicking a 53-yard field goal for the football team in its game against Rancho Verde Friday night. Thompson's previous best was another impressive kick, covering 52 yards.

Monica Guzman represents the girls volleyball team as an Athlete of the Week. The senior is looked to for leadership heading into a new season.

Taylor Taite is one of the leading runners on the girls cross country team, which opens its season with a home meet against Temescal Canyon on Sept. 11.

Madison Schimek brings great potential and talent into this season for the golf team, which prepares to open its first season of competition.

These athletes will be eligible for selection as Murrieta Mesa High School's Athletes of the Month, which will be announced the first week of October.
