Orange County: Athletes of the week Savanna Smith, Los Alamitos, Sr. The Griffins, No. 2 in the Southern Section Division I rankings, scored a 9-3 victory over No. 3 Newport Harbor behind the 11 saves of Smith, a California-bound goalkeeper. Her big performance, which included three saves against the power play, allowed Los Alamitos to seize first place in the Sunset League and position itself in the bracket opposite Dos Pueblos (56-game winning streak) in the playoffs.
Marcus Bradley, Corona del Mar, Sr. The 6-foot-8 senior forward averaged 28 points last week to lead the Sea Kings to two Pacific Coast League victories and a nonleague win. In the latter, he scored 33 with 13 rebounds in an 80-67 victory over Upland, a team that had beaten Corona del Mar in the third game of the season, 79-63.
