Defense got rewarded with Athlete of the Week awards at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon.
Logan Elder of Laguna Blanca boys basketball and Britten Vilander of the Dos Pueblos girls water polo team were the award winners.
Elder scored 27 points in a 59-45 win over Condor League rival Cate and then shut down one of Providence Hall’s leading scorers, holding him to just four points, in a 79-35 victory.
Vilander, the Chargers’ goalie, made 11 saves, including one with two seconds left in regulation time, in a dramatic 9-8 win over Santa Barbara that gave DP sole possession of first place. She also assisted on the game-winning goal for DP.
