It was a big week for San Marcos athletes, and they were rewarded with both Athlete of the Week honors at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon.

D’Shaun Vines was named male Athlete of the Week for his performance in leading the Royals to their first football win of the season, a 24-19 decision over Hueneme.

The female AOW award went to freshman tennis player Yuka Perera. She swept her three singles sets to help the Royals knock off Santa Barbara, ending the Dons’ 77-match win streak in Channel League.

Vines had a big night for the Royals on the gridiron. The senior quarterback rushed for 121 yards and two scores on 10 carries and passed for a touchdown.

Athletes receiving honorable mention accolades were Mike Soracco (Bishop Diego football), Brent Peus (Santa Barbara High football), Jeffery Acheampong (UCSB soccer), Chloe Allen (San Marcos volleyball), Miranda Marquez (Carpinteria volleyball), Gabby Minier (Dos Pueblos golf), Erica Schroeder (San Marcos cross country) and Christina Rice (Dos Pueblos cross country).
