CalHiSports.com State Athletes of the Week
Boys: Adam Trafalis
Trafalis is one of the top quarterbacks in Northern California and gave it his all last week in a wild 52-43 loss to South San Francisco in the first round of the CIF Central Coast Section Div. III playoffs. Trafalis, a 6-2, 225 pounder who is being recruited by several Div. I universities, completed 27 of 47 passes against SSF for 458 yards and seven touchdowns. Trafalis threw four TD passes to Chris Diaz and three to Ryan Grossman. His yardage total is third highest in the state so far this season and his TD passes ties the state single game high. Trafalis also is a standout at Mills in track as a discus thrower. He placed eighth in the CIF state meet last spring and should be frequently over the 180-foot mark this coming season.
Girls: Jessica Javalet
(Torrey Pines, San Diego)
The CIF San Diego Section is generally regarded as the best in the state when it comes to field hockey and last week it was Javalet who led Torrey Pines to the CIFSD Div. I championship. The junior midfielder scored twice in a 4-1 victory in the quarterfinals and had the Falcons' only goal in a 1-0 win in the semifinals. In the championship match against league rival La Costa Canyon, Javalet struck yet again with a game-tying goal late in the match to force overtime. Torrey Pines went on to win, 3-2, and capped a 25-2-1 season.
