Football: Lincoln 41, Hillsdale (San Mateo) 19
With no runaway favorite in the Academic Athletic Association to start the football season, Lincoln High School may have settled into that spot with a double-digit win on the road against the Knights (0-2).
The Mustangs (1-1) bounced back from their opening-week loss to Riordan by rushing for 315 yards on 55 carries, led by 91 yards and a touchdown on six carries by junior running back Tyree Marzetta. Senior Demetrius Williams added 87 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries.
With the running game working, Lincoln quarterback Derek Morrell had an efficient day through the air, connecting on 5-of-7 passing attempts for 77 yards and two touchdowns. The senior also had 35 yards rushing and a touchdown on seven carries.
Football: Galileo 47, Gonzales 8
Lincoln may have made a case for being the best team in the AAA in the still-early season, but Galileo running back Ronzel Fox made his own case for being the early favorite for AAA player of the year.
Still just a junior, Fox ran for 163 yards on eight carries against the Spartans (0-1), with touchdown runs of 44, 34, 19 and 44 yards.
At linebacker, Fox had 10 tackles, an interception, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery returned for a 72-yard touchdown.
The Lions (1-0-1) also got a touchdown pass from junior quarterback Kyle Nelson (56 yards on 2-of-4 passing) and a 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by junior Dontell Jackson.
Girls Volleyball: Drew falls short in Laguna Blanca Tourney final
The Dragons traveled down to Santa Barbara for the Laguna Blanca Tournament and impressed with a 4-1-1 record in the Silver Division.

Senior outside hitters Ellie Kantola and Iris Qasevakatini paced the Drew offense with 28 and 24 kills, respectively, and senior setter Kenna Kryger doled out 62 total assists.
