Stamatia Scarvelis and Baker Johnson were announced as Athletes of the Week at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon, the last lunch gathering of the 2012-13 school year.

Scarvelis, a track & field standout from Dos Pueblos High School, recorded a personal best in the shot put at Saturday’s CIF Division 2 Preliminary Meet at Moorpark High School. The distance of 50 feet, 4 1/2 inches is the farthest throw in California this season and earned Scarvelis the top seed in this weekend’s CIF-ss Track & Field Championships.

Scarvelis also placed second in the discus at Prelims with a throw of 156’9 1/2″.

Johnson led San Marcos’ boys volleyball team to three CIF wins last week and a berth in the Division 2 semifinals.

Johnson totaled 56 kills in the three matches, including a 23-kill performance in Saturday’s sweep of Oaks Christian. Johnson committed just one error with a hitting percentage of .692 in the quarterfinal match.

Honorable Mentions are: Alex Valente, Dos Pueblos Swimming; Ryan Worley, Santa Barbara High Volleyball; Bryan Fernandez, Dos Pueblos Cross Country; Charlie Holyoke, SBCC Golf; Chloe Madill, Dos Pueblos Softball; Caroline Vance, San Marcos Track & Field; Ashlynd Williams, Bishop Diego Softball; Irene Kujore, UCSB Track & Field.

The Athletes of the Week are selected each week by a panel of local sports media reporters. The candidates are identified by PresidioSports.com, Santa Barbara’s Community Sports News resource.
