Athletes of the Week

January 20, 1998

Boys

Mike Page

School: San Fernando

Year: Senior

Sport: Basketball

Season at a Glance: One of the most improved players in the region, Page is a 6-foot-5 forward who has emerged from a spot player to the Tigers' most reliable long-range shooter. In the championships of the Hart tournament last month, Page made seven three-pointers in a two-point loss to Simi-Valley. Page averages 15.8 points a game.

Week at a Glance: Page continued his long-range heroics against Cleveland by sinking a three-pointer as time expired in regulation to force overtime. Page scored 26 points and San Fernando won in the extra period, 79-70. Against Taft on Friday, Page scored 12 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and San Fernando held on for a 733-61 victory

Girls

Liz Nesbitt

School: Thousand Oaks

Year: Senior

Sport: Basketball

Season at a Glance: Nesbitt, a senior forward, is averaging 9.7 points and 6.4 rebounds for Thousand Oaks. Her aggressive rebounding and defensive play have been pivotal for the Lancers, who are attempting to claim at least a share of their third consecutive Marmonte League championship.

Week at a Glance: Nesbitt made her biggest contributions on offense. She scored 21 points in a victory over Channel Islands, then hit a 1-foot jumper at the buzzer to give Thousand Oaks a 50-49 upset victory over Royal, ending the Highlanders' 16-game winning streak and vaulting the Lancers into a tie for first place in the league.
