Jeadan Underwood, King’s Academy football. The Knights rushed for 381 yards in a 49-35 win over Terra Nova, and Underwood led the way. The sophomore tailback logged 24 carries for 170 yards. Underwood’s total was rivaled by TKA fullback Alex Boch, who ran for 154 yards on 20 carries. But what puts Underwood over the top is his five rushing touchdowns, not to mention a 70-yard kickoff return for another score.
Xavier McKenzie, Aragon boys’ water polo. McKenzie scored four goals to help lead the Dons past Terra Nova 9-6 in the PAL’s CCS play-in game.

He added a 94-yard return for a score on the final play of the third quarter that cut the SHP deficit to 40-37.
Cleo Hardin and Hallie McDonald, Menlo School volleyball. The Lady Knights enjoyed an epic week, defeating rival Sacred Heart Prep not once, but twice.
