FFGrossmont College water polo player Collin Stanley and San Diego City College cross country runner Christopher Felix have been named Pacific Coast Athletic Conference Men’s Athletes of the Week.

Stanley, a freshman driver from Serra High School, scored six goals and added an assist and two steals as he led the Griffins to a 21-10 conference victory over San Diego Miramar.

Felix, a freshman from Paloma Valley High School in Menifee, was City College’s top finisher in the Foothill Invitational meet at Cucamonga-Guesti Park in Ontario. He ran to a 16th-place finish, running the 4.0-mile course in 22:04, in leading the Knights to a fifth-place team finish.  It was City College’s best-ever showing in the Foothill meet.

Honorable mention for the week went to Southwestern football player Frank Foster, Palomar wrestler Shervin Iraniha, Palomar football player Javante O’Roy and Cuyamaca cross country runner Clayton Rule.

Foster, a 6-foot-0, 210-pound sophomore from Valhalla High School, was 33-for-41 passing for 317 yards and three touchdowns and added the game-winning TD on a 10-yard run as the Jaguars defeated Palomar 31-28, Southwestern’s first win against Palomar in football since 1988.

Iraniha, Palomar’s sophomore 165-pounder from Monte Vista High School helped lead the Comets to the championship at the Mt. SAC Duals. Iraniha went 4-0 as he won by pin against East Los Angeles, by decision against Mt. SAC and by major decision vs. both West Hills-Lemoore and Cerritos. The Comets defeated East L.A., beat 2012 state team runner-up Mt. SAC 24-12, defeated West Hills-Lemore 28-15 and won a 19-18 thriller over Cerritos.

O’Roy, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound freshman cornerback from Antelope High School and a transfer from Sacramento City College, returned an interception 87 yards for a touchdown vs. Southwestern and also had nine tackles (eight solo) and a broken-up pass. Two weeks earlier, he returned an interception 101 yards for a touchdown, a Palomar record, in a 31-14 season-opening victory over El Camino College.

Rule, a freshman from Valhalla High School, led Cuyamaca’s pack strategy which enabled the Coyotes to finish second in team scoring against four-year college’s at the 69th Annual Aztec Invitational, hosted by San Diego State University at Balboa Park. Rule finished the 8-kilometer course in 27:18 as Cuyamaca ran 5-6-7-8-9 in taking the second-place to Biola University.
