Lundberg McCoy earn top honors at No SB County Athletic Round Table

ORCUTT, Calif. - A pair of first time award winners highlighted Monday's gathering of the Northern Santa Barbara County Athletic Round Table.

Michahjuliana Lundberg of St. Joseph earned the female athlete of the week award after helping the girls tennis team to a pair of Mountain League victories.

"I just feel super honored, especially since I've been working pretty hard with my coach at the Santa Maria Country Club," said Lundberg.

In a victory over rival Righetti on Tuesday, the freshman won 6-0, 6-1 while playing as the No. 2 singles player.

She later teamed with Katelynn Haskell for a come-from-behind 8-6 win while playing at No. 1 doubles.

Her two victories helped lead the Knights to a 8-1 win over the Warriors.

Two days later on Thursday, Lundberg turned in another two wins while helping the Knights to a hard-fought 5-4 victory over Atascadero.

In doubles, Lundberg teamed with Shianne Gooley for an important 6-1, 6-2 win.

Lundberg also added a 6-0, 6-2 at No. 2 singles.

With the wins, St. Joseph improved to 6-0 overall on the year.

Tyler McCoy of Valley Christian Academy football was named male athlete of the week.

"It means a lot," said McCoy. "There's a lot of great athletes in the area, so it's an honor."

During a 65-28 win over Laton on Friday, the junior simply did it all.

McCoy rushed for three touchdowns and threw for three more.

He was just as dominant while playing on defense. 

McCoy led the Lions with 15 total tackles, a forced fumble, fumble recovery two interceptions, and three pass deflections.

"You don't rely on one person," said McCoy. "As a quarterback, I have to thank my o-line for the time and the receivers for catching the ball, so yes, it's just a team effort."

The Lions (2-0) will next play in Monterey on Saturday to face Trinity Christian.
