Alexis Delgado, Marshall Fundamental: Delgado led the way with 11 kills and nine digs in the Eagles’ victory over South El Monte, 25-20, 25-22, 26-24, in their Mission Valley League finale to secure second place in league. It was an important win for the Eagles, who finished the regular season 21-8 and secured the No. 3 seed in the CIF Southern Section Division 9 playoffs. Marshall will open the playoffs at home Thursday against Ganesha or Mesa Grand Academy.

Bella Rasmussen, Laguna Beach: The running back became the first girl in California to score two touchdowns in a varsity football game as the Breakers defeated Godinez 48-0. Rasmussen scored on runs of 1 and 4 yards in the second quarter of the Pac 4 League game. She is believed to be only the third Orange County girl to score a touchdown in a varsity game.

Joey Marshall, Santiago: Marshall had a moment to remember last week when she recorded her first hole-in-one during a Big VIII League match against Norco. Marshall’s ace came on the fourth hole at Eagle Glen Golf Club in Corona (listed on the card at 130 yards). She used a 9 iron on the shot. Santiago went on to win the match 226-265. October has been a successful month for Marshall. She shot a season-low 39 at Eagle Glen in a league match against Roosevelt the previous week.

Avery Peck, Long Beach Poly: Peck won her second straight Moore League cross country meet, this time in 18 minutes and 59 seconds at Discovery Well Park in Signal Hill on Thursday, Oct. 13. The freshman won the race by more than 90 seconds. Peck will race again locally at the Moore League Finals on Nov. 2 at Heartwell Park in Long Beach.

Kalyssa Blackshear, Torrance: Blackshear helped the Tartars wrap up an undefeated Pioneer League season with wins over West and South. Torrance kicks off the CIF-Southern Section Division 3 playoffs Wednesday at home against Flintridge Sacred Heart.

Taylor Treahy, Saugus: Treahy, an opposite hitter, led the team in kills and hitting percentage (.450) in their three wins last week that helped Saugus clinch its first Foothill League title in 11 years. Treahy’s best match was an 18-kill performance in a sweep of Canyon. The Centurions earned the No. 1 seed and a first-round bye in the CIF Southern Section Division 4 playoffs. They will play the winner of Warren and Thousand Oaks in the second round at home Saturday.
