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 this week's honorees from Vista Murrieta:

Keilanei Cooper of the girls basketball team had amazing finish to her season. In a 93-32 victory over Temecula Valley Feb. 8, she set the individual school scoring record with 47 points. In only 20 minutes, she made 18 of 34 shots, including 8 of 17 from 3-point range. In the Broncos' next game, she scored a game-high 23 points in a 79-28 win over Murrieta Mesa to help the team win its fifth consecutive league title.

"It was more than likely the greatest week ever by an individual in the history of VMHS basketball," coach Kurt Ruth said about Cooper.

Senior defender Lydia Buggs helped the girls soccer team win the Southwestern League title. The Broncos are 17-4-2 overall heading into Tuesday's CIF Southern Section playoff game at El Dorado.

This is the final week that winter sports athletes will be honored. Murrieta 24/7 will begin honoring spring sports athletes the week of March 6.
