HS Athletes of the Week, Nov. 2: Marcos Reyes & Layla Ruiz

The Register-Pajaronian High School Athletes of the Week for the week of Oct. 22-28.

HS Football: Mariners’ Austen a BIG deal

Austen, a senior offensive lineman for the Aptos High football team, stands at a towering 6-foot-5-inches and 311 pounds. Standing next to his fellow lineman, the starting left tackle makes them all look like members of the freshman squad. Six-foot-2, 283-pound senior tackle Joseph Gutierrez-Lee might as well be 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds.

MBL-P Baseball: Pajaro Valley stuns Watsonville, squashes 131-game losing streak

Behind senior Daivian Quintana’s pitching and an explosive first few innings, Pajaro Valley squashed a 131-game losing streak against league opponents with a 7-2 win over cross-city rival Watsonville in Monterey Bay League Pacific division action on Friday night.

HS Volleyball: Aptos enjoying winning streak, proving doubters wrong

Tony's Thoughts: Aptos looking to make name for itself vs. McClymonds

Aptos has made a name for itself in Santa Cruz County and the CCS over the last eight seasons — winning six league titles and four section crowns in that time — and the Mariners will have another chance to bring a little more recognition to the juggernaut program from a pint-sized collection of towns with a population of just over 24,000.

JC Football: Quarterback Kendall Williams, Cabrillo host streaking Yuba

Williams, who missed time in Cabrillo’s previous three games because of injury, completed 12-of-20 passes for 279 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in a 62-17 non-conference win over Redwoods College on Oct. 6.
