Bishop Diego’s Anthony Carter

Dos Pueblos’ Colleen O’Connor and Bishop Diego’s Anthony Carter have been selected as this week’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Athletes of the Week and were recognized on Monday at Harry’s Plaza Cafe.

O’Connor led the Chargers’ girls volleyball team to a pair of Channel League victories last week, including a crucial five-set win on Thursday at Santa Barbara High that lifted the Chargers into first place in league play. O’Connor recorded 11 kills in Tuesday’s win over Ventura and followed that up with a team-high 14 on Thursday.

Anthony Carter was a key piece to Bishop Diego’s 39-22 rivalry win over Carpinteria last week. Carter, a mobile quarterback, ran for 127 yards and two touchdowns while throwing for a 27-yard touchdown completion. The Cardinals, 6-0, are ranked No. 2 in the Northwest Division.
