Each week of the school year, Murrieta 24/7 honors top student-athletes at Murrieta Valley 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 Valley High School Athletes of the Week:

Hailey Nichols
shot her season low score of 43 in a golf match against Temescal Canyon on Sept. 9.

"Hailey has been a great captain this season," said her coach, Rogelio Gallegos. "She really cares about all her teammates and she always has a positive attitude on the golf course."

Vanessa Garcia, just a freshman, had a great first race for the girls cross country team last week.

"We raced for the first time this season in Laguna Hills," reported coach Fabrice Vuillemey. "The weather conditions were terrible, with 60 percent humidity. Vanessa ended up to be the second fastest time for the team, which give her a varsity spot for the next race. She also finished 17th out of 172 athletes."

The boys cross country team is represented by Devon Smart, who also is a freshman.

"Devon is also a freshman," said Vuillemey. "He had an amazing race on Saturday, finishing 19th out of 216 runners. He raced so well that his time is only a few seconds away from our top athletes."

Jovana Kuljanin was honored for her fast start with the girls golf team.

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