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 honorees:

Lacrosse player Arianna Galindo is a "high energy player with a type of aggressiveness you can't teach," said her coach, Molly Sovacool. "She is a defender we use as a midfielder when we need a strong attack to the goal."

Christian Daga of the boys tennis team "is a great player and continues to make an impact on the team," said his coach, Lisa Laney.

Swimmer Mateo Saldana competes in the 200 IM and 500 freestyle. In the 500 free, he has dropped his time over 10 seconds.

Softball player Autumn Pease pitched her team to victory over Murrieta Valley 2-0 in the league opener with a three-hit shutout and eight strikeouts.

Baseball player Zac Filos was 3 for 3 with 2 RBIs and 2 stolen bases against Murrieta Valley last week, then came back against the same team two days later to pitch 5 1/3 innings, striking out six and giving up just two earned runs in a 4-3 victory to finish the sweep.

These athletes will be eligible for the April Athlete of the Month award. Anyone wishing to order a glossy print of this article with photo may do so by emailing murrieta247info@gmail.com.
