Orange County: Athletes of the week Savannah King, Orange Lutheran, Sr. Despite being an underdog in both games, King led her team to a week most only dream about. The Pittsburgh-bound pitcher hurled her team to victories over Santa Margarita and Mater Dei. King pitched a three-hitter and drove in two runs in a 4-1 win over Santa Margarita, which was ranked No. 7 in the state, and pitched three perfect innings of relief to get a save in a 5-4 victory over Mater Dei.
Jantzen Oshier, Trabuco Hills, Sr. The senior standout won the 800 and 1,600 meters in a dual meet against El Toro to lead the Mustangs to a 77-59 victory in a battle of top county teams.
