Mason Igawa, Millikan Soccer

Morgan King, Long Beach Poly Soccer
Long Beach Poly senior and Northern Colorado signee Morgan King had a pair of great performances in the Jackrabbits’ two playoff victories. King had the free kick to set up the game’s winning goal against Fountain Valley and calmly buried a free kick in a 1-0 win over Los Osos in the second round.
Jennine Osorio, Millikan Water Polo
Millikan’s Jennine Osorio had a big hand in the Rams’ run to the CIF-SS quarterfinals, scoring four goals in each of the Rams’ first two games. That included a pair of goals in overtime to seal a second-round victory.
