SoCal Prep Legends
Boys Athlete of the Week
Name: Mark Saavedra
School: Cantwell-Sacred Heart
Sport: Baseball
Year: Sophomore

Winning Numbers: In a poll that tallied nearly 40,000 votes, Saavedra’s support outlasted Don Lugo’s Khoury Bethley in a tight race to the finish.
The Cardinals entered last week’s crucial Camino Real League game against Mary Star on a two-game skid. But Saavedra put an end to that, hurling a gem to help get his team back on track. Saavedra went 5 2/3 innings, allowed just three hits and struck out five to get his third win of the season.
