Junior Deyjanae Williams of the girls basketball team had big games last week in league games games against Temecula Valley and Chaparral. In the Chaparral game, she had her first career triple double with 17 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. "She had a very complete game and involved all of her teammates," said coach Kyle Rouse. The Rams are 13-7 overall and 4-2 in league play.

Senior Giovanni Sanders "has been a steady leader for our team all season, and this week was no exception," said boys basketball coach Chris Jones. "He had an 18-point game on Tuesday night and on Thursday hit the game-clinching free throws in the final seconds of the game. He also is now No. 2 all-time in school history for both rebounds and steals, and No. 3 all time for assists." The team is 19-6 overall and 5-1 in league play.

Tessa McCart was selected from the girls water polo team. "She’s a hard worker and led her team offensively and played strong defense as well," coach Audra Woods said about McCart's play last week.

Boys soccer player Josh Steging is a junior and captain of the team. "Josh is a true competitor and he shows it every day, whether it is during a practice or in a game," said coach Robert Bokma. "Josh wants to win and he wants to help his team to get the win. He not only leads by example, but he leads by motivating his teammates.

"Josh has been an amazing addition to our program from the day he walked onto the pitch his freshman year. He has a great attitude and is an extremely hard worker. His skill level on the field makes him one of the most dangerous players in the league. He has scored in many games this year and has led to others getting goals as well.

"Josh does not stop working, even after a practice or game is over. You can see that he is thinking about what to do next or how he can help the team for the next practice or next game. Josh is one of the respectful students we have. As a coach, you wish every player would work and behave as well as Josh does."
