MALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK BRIAN JOSEFF made his first goal of the season a memorable one, as the Santa Barbara High soccer defender gave the Dons a 1-0 lead in the 22nd minute of Friday’s CIF Division II title game against Dos Pueblos. He assisted Christian Pardo on Santa Barbara’s second goal eight minutes later. The Dons won the title 3-0 in front of 8,000 fans at Harder Stadium.

Farias went 5-for-8 from beyond the arc en route to 20 points as Westmont advanced to the tournament title game for just the second time in school history.
