LA South: Athletes of the Week
By Blair Angulo
Beejay Lee, West Covina, Jr.
Talk about making the most of one's opportunities. Lee did that and more last Thursday in a win over down-the-street rival South Hills, reaching the end zone on three of his six carries. In other words, Lee scored on 50 percent of his touches. The junior thanked his offensive line for helping him to 126 yards rushing -- an average 21 yards per carry.
Erica Capellino, Palos Verdes, Sr.
Capellino turned the Iolani Cross Country Invitational in Kualoa Ranch, Oahu into a business trip, winning the three-mile race on Saturday. The senior registered a time of 19:04, finishing nearly 10 seconds ahead of her nearest competitor. Palos Verdes took third place behind Dana Hills and Punahou of Hawaii.
