Congratulations to this week’s Athletes of the Week, sponsored by Naples Rib Company.


Erick Barrios, Compton Football

Compton’s Erick Barrios had a memorable game in a 60-0 season-opening win for his team. Barrios had three total touchdowns with an interception returned for a score and two rushing scores.

Antonio Elam, Cabrillo Football

Cabrillo didn’t come up with a win last week, but hosting their first game in two years felt like one. Antonio Elam was part of the reason it was so fun for Jags fans as he scored a pair of touchdowns in a loss.

Alyson Sor, Wilson Golf

Wilson’s Alyson Sor tied a program record with a round of five-under at Recreation Park in a win over Los Alamitos last week. Sor’s -5 score of 33 ties a program record shared by Emi Sverduk and Aundi Morallos.


Lena Silano, Long Beach State Soccer

Lena Silano scored the game-winning goal for the Beach in last week’s upset win over No. 8 Pepperdine, a 2-1 victory that moved Long Beach State to 2-0 for the first time in a decade.
