A pair of Dos Pueblos athletes were honored as the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Athletes of the Week.

Football player Matt Sessler and golfer Megan Caird were the recipients of the award.

Sessler had a big game against San Marcos. He caught three touchdown passes in the first half, leading the Chargers to a 49-14 crosstown win, which gave them the City Championship.

“Matt continues to improve his game every single week,” DP coach Nate Mendoza said. “I’m really proud of the way he performed Friday night. I’m pleased how far he’s performed and how far he’s come this year.”

Caird earned medalist in two DP victories last week. She shot a 36 at Glen Annie Golf Course, helping the Chargers beat Righetti with a season-low score of 197. She shot a match-low 38 in a Channel League match against Ventura, which capped a 14-0 regular season.

Caird was unable to attend Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Luncheon to receive he plaque because she was playing at the Channel League Individual Tournament at Soule Park in Ojai.

The male athletes named as honorable mention are Marcus Hoerberg (SBCC football), Omar Montalvo (SBCC soccer), Cole Smith (Dos Pueblos cross country), Shane Hauschild (San Marcos water polo), BJ Murillo (Bishop Diego football).

The female honorable mention selections are Lexi Rottman (Santa Barbara High volleyball), Brandie Harris (SBCC soccer) and Leah Sully (UCSB volleyball).
