Orange County: Athletes of the week
By Martin Henderson
Karlee Riggs, Tustin, Sr.
The Tillers’ outside hitter registered a huge week to keep her team in the playoff hunt. In a four-game Empire League victory over Western, she had 31 kills, 29 digs and two blocks, and the next day in a nonleague win over Irvine she had 21 kills, 22 digs and six blocks.
Malik Felton, Servite, Sr.
Although normally a slot, Felton was pushed into duty at running back in place of injured Sean DeRosa and delivered Servite’s season-high 199 yards rushing – which included two 11-yard touchdown runs in the second half – in a 32-24 victory over St. John Bosco that helped the Friars win their 18th in a row.
