Track standout Nathaniel Getachew and lacrosse scoring whiz Olivia Geyling of Dos Pueblos were honored as the Athletes of the Week at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon at Harry’s Plaza Cafe on Monday.
Geyling’s consistent goal scoring led the Dos Pueblos girls lacrosse team to an undefeated Channel League championship campaign and a berth in the playoffs.
In two overtime wins last week, the junior scored four goals against Thacher and three against San Marcos. She went over the 100-goal mark in her two-year career with the Chargers.
Getachew is in peak form as track and field heads into its postseason. The senior won Channel League championships in the 1600 and 800 meters. He broke two minutes in the 800, running a personal best of 1:58.46.
Getachew will run in the CIF-SS Division 2 Prelims on Saturday at Moorpark High.
The honorable mention choices for the male athletes were Jack Dickinson (Westmont track & field), Masato Perera (San Marcos tennis), Mason Lender and Taylor Kleine (Santa Barbara tennis), Matt Mills (San Marcos swimming) and Brian Nnoli (SBCC track & field.
The female honorable mention include Molly Gans (Dos Pueblos track & field), Holland Woodhouse (San Marcos swimming) and Sydney Marr (Westmont track & field).
These were the final Athletes of the Week awards for the 2018-19 school year.
The Round Table will honor its Athletes of the Year in all high school and college sports at its Evening with the Athletes on Wednesday, May 8 at the Majorie Luke Theater at Santa Barbara Junior High.
