Each week, Murrieta 24/7 honors top student-athletes at Vista Murrieta 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 the Vista Murrieta honorees:

Boys cross country runner Kyle Davis is coming off a three-week layoff due to a nasty chest cold. He ran strong this last week in a league race and helped bring the Broncos to a second-place finish. He again stepped up for his team at last weekend's Inland Empire Challenge. With No. 1 runner Eric Nunez out of the lineup, Edgard Villa and Davis needed to be the ones to step up. They both did, but Davis was tripped up at the start, tumbling to the ground. The starter missed the tumble and no second gun was sounded. Davis was able to pick himself up and chase after the pack and still come in only three seconds over his personal best.

Peyton Candaele of the girls cross country team had her best race of the season at the second league race, finishing third for her team and helping the Broncos secure a second-place finish, only two points behind Great Oak.

Bianca Bonwell shot a 42 and 39 last week to help the Broncos win both their golf matches.

Holley Persson is a defensive specialist who stepped into the libero spot this week and did a great job for the girls volleyball team, said her coach, Kristen Cooke.

Defensive lineman Kevin Atkins is one of the anchors of a defense that has helped the Broncos football team to a 6-1 overall record, including last Friday's 35-7 win over Murrieta Valley.

These athletes will be eligible for selection as Vista Murrieta's October Athletes of the Month. Anyone wishing to order a glossy print of this article with photo may do so by emailing murrieta247info@gmail.com.
