Among those from baseball on this week's honor list is a player with 11 RBI in one game and a player who threw his team's fourth no-hitter of the season. In softball, the San Diego Section career hits record has fallen and the latest pitching ace from Fairfield has a no-hitter.

John Manfre (Monte Vista Christian, Watsonville): Powered out a reported three home runs as MVC scored 12 times in the fourth and fifth innings of 16-0 romp vs. Alisal of Salinas.

Greg Murphy (Rio Linda): As the Knights downed Dixon 20-10 in six innings, Murphy drove in 11 runs and scored three while batting 4x5 with two home runs. His 11 RBI just missed the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section record of 12 set in 1997 by Jarrel McIntyre of Laguna Creek.

Andrew Nacario (La Costa Canyon): In a 13-3 win over Valley Center that improved the Mavericks' record to 8-1 and gave them the title of the Falcon-Pirate Classic, Nacario went 4x5 and scored three runs.

Steve Palmer (Frazier Mountain. Lebec): Palmed his way to a one-hit 14 strikeout shutout of Maricopa 4-0.

Jake Rodriguez (Whittier): The freshman smashed a grand slam and pitched three no-hit, no-run innings as Whittier downed California of Whittier, 11-3.

Lisa Goodfellow (Golden Sierra, Garden Valley): Belted five hits in a 5x5, three-run, four-RBI performance that included a triple in leading her team over Lindhurst of Olivehurst 14-10. In reference to one of our all-time favorite movies, we promise not to call her Lisa Goodfella at any time this season.

Jennifer Hodrick (Westchester, Los Angeles): Celebrated the Comets' Div I boys basketball state chanpionship with an 8-0 nine-strikeout no-hitter over Venice.

Selena Salazar (San Fernando): Bashed two homers in a 13-6 triumph over Sylmar. San Fernando reportedly had six homers but only four are known for sure. The state record for team home runs in a game is 10 by Pasadena in 1986.

Angelica Selden (Vanden, Travis AFB): Tossed a 2-0 no-hitter against Dixon with 13 Ks and scored the second run after knocking in the first with a triple. Following that, she struck out 21 in a 10-inning 3-2 win over Foothill of Sacramento. The runs were unearned so she still has not given up an earned run so far in a 9-1-1 season.

Amber Smith (Fairfield): Taking over for last year's state player of the year, Alicia Hollowell, Amber pitched a perfect game with 13 strikeouts in a 9-0 triumph over Davis.

Melissa Sparks (Woodland): Sparked the Wolves with six RBI and three runs scored during a 4x5 batting performance as Grant of Sacramento suffered through yet another pasting, this one 23-0. The loss put Grant at 0-6 for the season with just nine runs scored and 118 given up. Again, we ask why the Pacers are forced to be in such a strong league for softball just because they're strong in football? Grant may never have won a league softball game.

Sarah Thornton (Redwood Christian, Castro Valley): Dinged a double and triple and had seven RBI as Redwood Christian donged St. Lawrence of Santa Clara 22-1.

Ann Marie Tops (Costa Mesa): Helped to top Ocean View of Huntington Beach 5-1 with her fifth season home run.
