Male Athlete of the Week Manny Hernandez did a lot of important things in San Marcos’ 14-7 cross-town football win at Dos Pueblos on Friday night. Firstly, he was the lead blocker for running back Kyle Miller, who chugged for 162 yards on 36 carries and two touchdowns. Hernandez was also the team’s leader on defense, getting in on 18 tackles. He is also a golden-toed punter for the team, averaging right around 40 yards per kick on the year.
Female Athlete of the Week Nicole Bullemer won her second straight Channel League girls golf crown last week. She fired a 3-over 75 in windy conditions at Soule Park on Tuesday which gave her a two-day total of 155, good enough for a 10-storke win over the rest of the field.
