Chris Bene, Sequoia boys’ basketball. Bene combined for 37 points in two Central Coast Section playoff games last week, going for 20 points and 13 rebounds in a win over Monta Vista. He followed that with 17 points in a loss to Palo Alto in the second round.
Nick Schnabel, Serra boys’ soccer. The senior striker atoned for his missed penalty kick by scoring the equalizer and game-winner goals in the Padres’ 4-2 win over James Lick in a CCS Division II quarterfinal soccer game Saturday.
Leonardo Silva, El Camino boys’ soccer. Silva scored both Colts goals in a 3-2 loss to Overfelt in the first round of the CCS Division III playoffs last week. He converted a penalty kick in the 65th minute and scored the equalizer in the 78th minute off a free kick from 30 yards away. Unfortunately, the Colts could not get to overtime as Overfelt scored a minute later to beat El Camino.
Sam Requilman, Notre Dame-Belmont girls’ basketball. Requilman scored 11 points, tying for game-high honors, as the Tigers beat Mercy-Burlingame 48-34 in a CCS Division IV quarterfinal game Saturday.
Kevin Hahn, Aragon boys’ basketball. The senior center was the catalyst in holding the opposing offense in check as Aragon walloped Monterey, 52-33. Hahn notched double-figure blocks with 10 as the Dons advanced to their first Central Coast Section semifinal since 2003.
Rebecca Faulkner, Carlmont softball. The fourth-year varsity starter fired a two-hit shutout on opening day as the Scots trounced Notre Dame-Belmont, 13-0. Faulkner – the 2013 Peninsula Athletic League Player of the Year – struck out five against no walks.
Daniel Madigan, Skyline College baseball. The southpaw earned a complete-game win Feb. 27 in Skyline’s 5-1 win over Hartnell. It was the first complete game by a Trojans’ pitcher in nearly a year and their first win in a conference opener since 2008.
Skyler Fuss, College of San Mateo baseball. The sophomore reliever earned his fourth win of the year with 4 2/3 shutout innings in a 4-3 win comeback win over West Valley in the Bulldogs’ Coast Conference Golden Gate Division opener. Fuss currently ranks third in the state in wins, and his 4-0 record is tops among all California Community College relievers.
Talisa Fiame, CSM softball. The sophomore out of Terra Nova clubbed a pair of home runs and drove in seven runs in the Bulldogs’ 19-0 win over Mission College a week ago.
