Girls Athlete of the Week
Name: Erin Anderson

Winning Numbers: This week’s poll was on of the largest of the 2017-18 prep season, bringing in over 48,000 votes. It takes more than just one to make that happen, as Anderson’s support edged Eliana Chavira’s by just under 1,200 votes. Anderson has earned the right to be named SCPL Girls athlete of the Week. Anderson, a 6-foot-2 opposite hitter, registered a career-high 20 kills and also added five blocks as Santiago rallied from a set down to beat Palos Verdes in the Division 2 quarterfinals. She tallied 16 kills and five blocks in Santiago’s second-round sweep of Glendora. Anderson had one hitting error in each match and finished the week with a stellar .540 attacking percentage.
