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 honorees from Murrieta Mesa:

Junior Jonathan Mendez has made an impact in his first year as a varsity player with the boys soccer team.

"Jonathan has brought so much to our defense and is excelling more and more every time he steps on the pitch," said his coach, Robert Bokma. "Jonathan is a great teammate as he puts the team first before himself. If the coach says that the teams need someone to do something, he is one of the first players to volunteer. He continues to mature off the field as well as on the field and is a great example for other players to follow.

"If I was asked which player in the program most demonstrates what being a Murrieta Mesa Ram soccer player is, Jonathan would be one of the first people I would choose."

Mallory Dominguez
of the girls soccer team "has become one of the heartbeats for our midfield," said coach Mark Vogel. "Her desire and effort are helping to make her a big threat going forward, as well as a tenacious defender. Often marking a player of greater size, Mallory is relentless in applying pressure and is quick to transition to mounting an attack. Mallory's game knowledge and passion are huge reasons that she is fast becoming a leader on and off the field."

Ashley Lybbert is one of the standout players on the girls water polo team. "She is one of our captains and a huge asset defensively," said coach Audra Woods. "Ashley made the game-winning (play) which fed our counter to beat Chaparral this last Thursday."

These players will be eligible for the Athlete of the Month award. Anyone wishing to purchase a print copy of this article may do so by emailing murieta247info@gmail.com.
