Athletes of the Week

Aly Kaneshiro

Hart High School freshman Aly Kaneshiro made her mark last week in multiple softball games when she hit a walk-off two-run double against Canyon in the Indians’ 14-13 victory over the Cowboys. She finished the game 3-5 with four RBIs, and Hart (1-1 in Foothill) earned its first Foothill League win of the season. The team won two games last Saturday at the Orange County Woodbridge tournament, where Aly went 6 for 8 with two home runs and eight RBIs.

“Aly is not only a very good player, but is an even better teammate,” said Stephen P. Calendo, coach of the Hart softball team. “She should have a great career at Hart.”

Andrew Johnson

A junior at Valencia High School, Andrew Johnson is a skillful member of the boys’ volleyball team, scoring six kills in a decisive game last week. He succeeded in game 5 against Canyon in the Vikings’ 3-2 win over the Cowboys. Johnson finished the match with nine kills, and Valencia goes to a record of 4-1 in Foothill League, second place to West Ranch.

“He is a very competitive guy in practice, as well as games,” said Kevin Kornegay, coach of Valencia’s boys’ volleyball team. “On the court he is our go-to hitter when we need a kill. He leads by example — and with his energy on the court.”
