Each week, 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:

Solana Gonzalez is a junior midfielder and captain of the girls lacrosse team. She has been a standout player although she has only played the sport eight months. The team recently beat Vista Murrieta and Murrieta Valley.

Justus Romo, who has played the sport only three months, has excelled as goalie of the boys lacrosse team. He had 18 saves in a 14-0 shutout of Vista Murrieta last week.

Thomas McCraw set a school record in the shot put with a mark of 47-5 for the boys track team against Perris.

Varsity captain Chris Deddeh swept his singles sets for the boys tennis team in a match against Riverside Poly last week. "I'd like to thank all my teammates for supporting me and working together," he said.

Golfer Grant Meinhardt set a freshman record for averaging a score of 48. This year, he consistently shoots 46 and has a low score of 42.

Brenna Moran of the girls swimming team improved her times in both the 500 freestyle and 100 backstroke in an invitational at Corona High School. Clay Solorza of the boys team did the same in five events at that meet.

These athletes will be eligible for selection as Murrieta Mesa High School's Athletes of the Month, which will be announced the first week in April. Anyone wishing to order a glossy print of this article with photo may do so by emailing murrieta247info@gmail.com.
