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:

Jacob Ray, captain of the boys lacrosse team, won 24 out of 25 faceoffs in a recent 21-10 victory over Murrieta Valley.

Evyn Keller of the boys swim team broke two team records at the Temecula Valley High meet, winning the 50 freestyle and 100 backstroke. Girls swimmer Morgan Taylor was honored for her performances and support of her teammates.

Lexi Watts of the softball team had 14 strikeouts and hit over .500 in the Lady Titans Easter Classic tournament. She is batting .444 this season and is 2-0 as a pitcher.

Nicole Bowman
was selected to represent the girls lacrosse team. "She is an amazing young woman who is growing every day as a lacrosse player," said her coach, Molly Sovacool. "She is dedicated to the program and team and is a great leader."

Representing the boys tennis team is Andre Zayas. "Andre has stepped up his game and continues to give his best when he plays in his matches," said his coach, Lisa Laney. "This is Andre's first year on the tennis team as a senior."

Catcher Andy Thomas is batting .315 for the baseball team with one home run and 13 RBIs.

Other Athletes of the Week include Carlos Wedlow and Michal Sequeira of the boys and girls track team, respectively, and Cole Peters of the golf team.
