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. This week we honor athletes from the last two weeks. Here are the Murrieta Mesa honorees:

Senior Kyle Hayden is capping off an outstanding four-year varsity career with the boys soccer team, said his coach, Robert Bokma.

"This year Kyle is showing his leadership capabilities and keeping a great attitude while being a leader on the field," Bokma said. "He scored another goal against Paloma Valley High School and is a key offensive player for the team. He is becoming someone the team can really depend on. Kyle is another example of the high quality of students that attend Mesa High School."

The Athlete of the Week from the girls basketball team is sophomore guard Emilee Stallo, who is averaging 10.4 points per game for the Rams.

"Emilee is a returning varsity player who was the only freshman on varsity last season," said her coach, Kyle Rouse. "She is also one of our current captains. Emilee won all-tournament team selection for the Riverside Ramona Tournament, where we went 3-1. During this tournament, Emilee was one of our leading rebounders, averaging 6 a game, and one of our leading scorers, averaging double digits throughout the tournament.

"Also while we were on break she was a big factor in the Hemet Tournament. We look forward to her bringing her threat into league."

Senior forward Justin Little has performed consistently for the boys basketball team. He was named to the all-tournament team at the Tustin Tournament over holiday break.

Little is averaging 8.3 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.

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