Inland Empire: Athletes of the Week

September, 21, 2010
Dennis Taylor, Kaiser, Sr.

Taylor scored a touchdown on offense, on defense and intercepted a pass in the end zone to preserve a 28-0 shutout Friday night against Riverside North, a team that had shut out the Cats in three of the previous four seasons. Taylor's defensive touchdown came on a 40-yard fumble return in the second quarter and he caught a 12-yard touchdown pass while playing tight end in the fourth.

Mariel Mendoza, Riverside North, Jr.

In the first big cross-country meet of the season for Southern Section teams, Mendoza finished second in the girls' team sweepstakes race at the Woodbridge Invitational in Irvine, concluding the three-mile tour in 16 minutes 55 seconds. She finished 12 seconds behind the winner, Catrina McAlister of Arcadia. Mendoza finished 13th at the Division II state finals last season.
