Athletes Of The Week

March 28, 2000

Casey Janssen

Fountain Valley, Baseball

Janssen, employed as a substitute starting pitcher in an attempt to boost the Barons' struggling rotation, did not allow a hit through

five innings, hit a grand slam and added an RBI double as second-ranked Fountain Valley defeated No. 9 Los Alamitos, 9-3, in a Sunset League game at Los Alamitos. The senior right-hander, who last pitched as a freshman, struck out eight, issued no walks and gave up one unearned run.

* Travis Pendleton

Esperanza, Track

Threw the discus a state-leading 191 feet 7 inches at the Surf City Invitational at Huntington Beach High Saturday.

* Kris Kraushaar

Irvine, Volleyball

Had 12 kills to lead Irvine over top-ranked San Clemente in the Division I final of the Orange County Championships.

Irene Cho

Sunny Hills, Golf

Earned medalist honors against the top-ranked Santa Margarita boys' team after shooting even-par

35 at Los Coyotos

Wednesday. Cho, playing with the boys because her school

does not have a girls' team, had birdies on the par-three seventh and par-five ninth holes. Cho led the county with a 76 at the CIF-WSCGA (Women's Southern California Golf Assn.) team championships in Murrieta last November.

* Erika Corley
