This week’s Santa Barbara Athlete Round Table Athlete of the Week award winners helped their respective teams advance in the CIF playoff games.
Bishop Diego girls basketball player Jordyn Lilly and Tim Heiduk of the Dos Pueblos boys soccer team made the plays to keep their season’s going.
Lilly scored 38 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and had five assists in Bishop’s 64-44 first-round 5AA victory over Downey-Calvary Chapel. She followed that with a 24-point, 11-rebound effort in a 54-26 road win at Silver Valley in Yermo.
The Cardinals play a quarterfinal game Tuesday against Pasadena Poly at the SBCC Sports Pavilion.
