Golf standout Edward Yi and swimmer Emily Li have been named Murrieta 24/7 Athletes of the Month at Murrieta Valley High School.

Yi, who learned to golf from his father and sister, was also Athlete of the Month last May. Also an excellent student, he has learned quickly in only his fourth year playing golf.

The Nighthawks are in contention to tie for the league championship behind Yi's leadership.

Li is one of the top swimmers even though she is just a freshman. She excels in the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke.

"I was taking lessons at the Murrieta community pool in the highest level of the class," she said. "I just loved racing. One of the lifeguards said they should put me on the swim team. I fell in love with it."
