An all-conference defensive end last fall, Alcala is 5-0 in CBBN 4A dual meets and he started a run of nine straight wins in Tuesday’s dual victory over Eisenhower.


Marissa Caballero, Grandview basketball, sophomore

After earning second-team CWAC honors as a freshman, Caballero continues to be one of the most consistent scorers in the CWAC averaging 14.5 points.


Derek Huck, Naches Valley basketball, senior

With scoring of 23, 24, 28 and 25 points in his last four SCAC West conference games, Huck drove his season average up to 17.3 points for the third-ranked Rangers.


Tucker Jones, Riverside Christian basketball, senior

The Crusaders have received a big lift from the forward, who has averaged 16.1 points and 10.2 rebounds in seven games this month to help push RC’s record to 12-3.

    This prep spotlight seems focused mainly on highlighting exceptional performance by other than normal ‘star’ individuals. A few weeks ago Emily Botkins was in this spotlight, when Amber Jones is clearly the best player on the team. I’m fine with that. I would agree that some schools seem to get more coverage in local media, but that may show more about me. WV, Selah, NV, Zillah, RC, La Salle, SC, WSU - hard to tell what most of these schools have in common? Reminds me of hearing that local Seattle tv stations cover the games at Memorial Stadium (if that’s the right place) because it’s right across the street, not because they’re necessarily the best programs. KIMA came all the way out to WS, but I get the feeling it was more to cover RC.
