Jacob Pubill, Summit Shasta baseball. Have a week, Jacob Pubill. With Summit Shasta staying unbeaten in PSAL play, Pubill led the march in a pair of shutouts last week in a 27-0 win over Pacific Bay and a 9-0 win over Pinewood. Pubill went 4 for 6 with two home runs and 12 RBIs through those two games, and also pitched eight innings on the week. He delivered one perfect inning of relief against Pacific Bay then returned three days later to fire a one-hit shutout while striking out a season-high 12 against Pinewood. He didn’t nearly reach his career high of 18 though, which he recorded last year against Kehillah Jewish.
Ione Thompson, Mills softball. The freshman recorded a three-inning no-hitter as the Lady Vikings dispatched Jefferson in a 19-0 mercy-rule victory. Thompson dominated in the shortened outing, notching eight of nine outs via strikeout.
Tim Berthier and Jake Andrew, Menlo-Atherton boys’ tennis. Both M-A standouts reached the championship match at the PAL boys’ individual tournament last Thursday. But something had to give, with Berthier riding the No. 1 seed to a 6-1, 6-3 win over Andrew, overcoming a 3-0 deficit in the second set by finishing with wins in six straight sets.
Ben Singler, Sequoia baseball. With the newly re-named Sequoia Ravens fighting to keep their postseason hopes alive, Bombin’ Ben set the tone for a critical two-game sweep of San Mateo. He stepped up in an 11-7 win in the series opener and blasted two home runs, and added 1 2/3 innings of relief to earn the first save of his varsity career.
Jeremy Chong, Hillsdale baseball. The senior was 4 for 10 with two home runs through three games last week. His blast against M-A in PAL Ocean Division play loomed large as it helped dig the Knights out of a 5-2 deficit. The two-run homer made it 5-4 and sparked a four-run comeback rally in a 6-5 victory.
Andre Volgin and Kevin Kafayi, Menlo boys’ tennis. The Knights claimed their 23rd consecutive West Bay Athletic League championship with last Monday’s sweep of Harker, with Volgin and Kafayi at the forefront. Then the two closed the week by pairing for the doubles championship in WBAL individual tournament.
Tommy Barnds, Sacred Heart Prep boys’ lacrosse. While Max Sloat scored a double hat rick in a 14-9 win over Monte Vista, Barnds was the steady contributor over both of SHP’s wins last week. The Gators also downed Marin Academy 11-7. Barnds totaled 10 goals on the week, five in each game.
Joseph King, Woodside baseball. The senior has been scorching the ball through Woodside’s six-game winning streak, including a pair of four-hit games. One of those came last week in a 14-1 win over Mills, part of King’s 7-for-11, four-double, four-RBI week, upping his season average to .500. He also earned the win on the mound in that game, striking out nine over five innings while allowing just one run on two hits.
Ashley Trierweiler, Carlmont softball. With the Lady Scots heading into the last two weeks of the regular season, Trierweiler is heating up at the right time. The senior enjoyed her best back-to-back performances of the season last week, going 7 for 8 with five RBIs and five runs scored. Trierweiler has spent the season marching up Carlmont’s leaderboard for career hits, surpassing Keli Leong (154), Holly Koklich (157), Melinda Earsley (157), Deanna Earsley (159) and Carrie Schubert (164) and now ranks second all-time with 183 hits. She is now 11 hits shy of the all-time leader, Janelle Yousef, who totaled 194 hits from 1997-2000.
