Lisa Luhrs, Terra Nova girls’ basketball. The senior hit the two biggest 3-pointers of her life in a 56-53 overtime win over archrival Half Moon Bay. With 10 seconds remaining in regulation, she drained her first 3 of the night to tie it 49-49 and force overtime. Her second splash proved the game-winner, giving the Tigers a 55-53 lead with a 1:25 left in OT.

Jack Woods, Serra wrestling. The senior at 170s won a pair of WCAL matches last week. After winning his match against Mitty on Tuesday, he came back with a third-round pin against Bellarmine. Woods, ranked sixth in CCS, dominated his Bellarmine opponent, coming up with four throws before finally putting his out of his misery.

Abby Chang and Jayla Stokesberry, Aragon girls’ soccer. The two midfielders each had a foot in the Dons ascending to the top of the Bay Division standings with a pair of wins last week.

Stokesberry got Aragon on the scoreboard in a 2-0 win over Burlingame with a perfectly placed shot to the far upper left corner from 30 yards. She duplicated that with a free kick goal from 25 yards away in a 3-1 win over Terra Nova.

Chang rounded out the scoring in each game. Against Burlingame, she took a pass from Alexa Abad, slalomed a pair of Panther defender and drilled a shot into the far right corner. Against the Tigers, she again took a pass from Abad that she converted for the Dons’ final goal.

Nelson Rodriguez, South City boys’ soccer. Vying for the top spot in PAL Bay Division, the Warriors stayed unbeaten in league play with a 4-2 win over Half Moon Bay. Rodriguez delivered a majority of the offense, as the junior midfielder totaled two goals and one assist.

Fola Akinola, Menlo-Atherton girls’ wrestling. The three-time defending Central Coast Section champion is off to another amazing start. Ranked No. 1 at 189s in the CCS, Akinola topped the podium in the division Saturday at the Lady Jaguar Wrestling Tournament in Vallejo. The senior went 3-0 on the day, with two pins before finishing off the gold-medal performance by outlasting Kelseyville’s Jasmin Clarke with a 9-4 decision in the title match.

McKenzie Baur, Woodside girls’ soccer. While Baur provided one of Woodside’s goals in a 3-1 win over Carlmont, it was Baur’s defense that topped the highlight reel. With the Wildcats clinging to a 1-0 lead in the second half, Carlmont exacted a corner kick, with Rachel Amir Chapman placing a header on target at the opposite post from Woodside’s goalkeeper. Baur was right there to absorb the attempt with a header of her own, keeping the Wildcats’ lead in check, then doubling it minutes later by converting a penalty kick.

Calvin Mader-Clark, Hillsdale boys’ basketball. The freshman wing had a strong showing in the Knights’ 47-37 win over Aragon, finishing with a game-high 19 points, which included a trio of 3-pointers.

Kyle Botelho, Burlingame boys’ wrestling. The junior took the silver medal at 132s Saturday at the Overfelt Classic in San Jose, wrestling his way to a 3-1 record. Botelho has now reached the championship round at five tournaments this season, including titles at the Webber Lawson tournament in Sunnyvale and the Bret Mar tournament in Gilroy.

Akenesi Hafoka, San Mateo girls’ basketball. A sophomore center, she recorded her first double-double of the season in a 46-37 win over Burlingame. Hafoka finished with 13 points and 16 rebounds in the Bearcats’ second PAL South Division win of the season.

Khalil Smith, Pacific Bay Christian boys’ basketball. The junior forward had the game of his life with Pacific Bay’s PSAL winning streak on the line in a 58-55 win over Summit Shasta. The Eagles trailed 40-35 heading into the fourth quarter, but outscored Summit Shasta 23-15 over the final eight minutes. Smith fronted the attack with his first double-double of the year, totaling 23 points and 16 rebounds, both career highs. After starting the season with a 1-8 non-league record, Pacific Bay is off to a 5-0 start in PSAL North Division play, extending its winning streak in league games to 71 games.
