Jetton earned his second Player of the Week honor with his performance in the Eagles’ dominating win over Galileo on Thursday.

He led the potent Washington running attack with a game-high 150 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries and also added a 77-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

The Eagles will host Galileo again in the AAA semifinals on Thursday.

“Our line played way better than we played before,” Jetton said. “We just came out hungry and wanted to fight hard to the end. This win is very important because we want to host them here for the playoffs.”

Honorable Mention: Emily Lee, junior setter, University girls volleyball

Lee has distributed the ball well to University hitters in two CIF-North Coast Section playoff wins last week, but it was her 13 aces against Calistoga on Wednesday in the first round that earned her consideration for Player of the Week.

Honorable Mention: Greg Warren, senior running back, Balboa football

Warren only had 12 carries in Balboa’s win over Burton on Friday, but he made the most of them.

On two of those carries, Warren had long touchdown runs of 91 and 61 yards and finished with a game-high 172 yards.

“Line, line, line. It was all my offensive line,” Warren said after the game.

Honorable Mention: Kelly Sung, senior outside hitter, Lincoln volleyball

Sung had a match-high 15 kills in Lincoln’s win over Balboa in the AAA championship game.

Seven of those kills came in the deciding third game, and five of them came on back-row strikes.
