RILEY OGDEN, Corner Canyon, football: The Chargers moved one win closer to claiming their first outright region title last week, and a huge game by this running back made it possible.
He carried the ball 33 times for 261 yards and two touchdowns in Corner Canyon's 42-28 victory over Skyline.
"We beat a good team. It was a great night for our running back," said Corner Canyon coach Don Eck. "He has been doing this all year for us."
In seven games this season, Ogden has gone over the century mark in all but one game and has 1,039 rushing yards and 8 TDs.
Last season in Corner Canyon's inaugural year Ogden racked up 1,135 yards and 8 TDs. At his current pace this season he could approach 1,800 yards if the Chargers make a deep run in the 4A state tournament as expected.
SARA MATSUMURA, Rowland Hall, volleyball: She may be just a junior, but the outside hitter has established herself as a leader, statistically and emotionally.
"One of our team captains, Sara is a leader by example and true inspiration to her teammates and coaches alike," said Winged Lions head coach Kendra Tomsic. "She can do it all on the court, her leaping ability is amazing and her quickness and ability to read hitters in the back row uncanny."
The honor student is averaging 22 kills, 15 digs and 15 service points per match. She earned 28 kills in a victory over region rival Waterford last week, and her consistency has helped the fifth-ranked team to a 6-0 record.
"Sara is truly one of the best players I have seen play the game," Tomsic said. "Her volleyball IQ is tremendous and her 'team first' attitude a joy to coach."
