Exeter Monarchs of the Week and Sports Extra
Monarchs of the Week
Each week, Exeter Union High School coaches will nominate outstanding players in each sport. These players will be featured here in the newspaper as well as at Kirkman’s VIP Pizza. This week’s players are listed below.
Christian Genetti – boys’ team
Chloe Welch – girls’ team
Highland extinguishes Golden West
The season ended for the twelfth seeded Blazers at the hands of the fifth seeded Scots. While the 7-4 outcome still hurt, the difference was tighter than their last six losses in the regular season. At such a low seed, it was going to be tough sledding for the Blazers all night. As a team, the Scots outranked the Blazers in every category.
Aztecs fall in quarterfinals of D-VI
The loss to Orange Cove hurt Farmersville’s playoff seeding more than anyone could have guessed. Due to a weak league, the second place finish dropped the Aztecs down from second to fifth seed in Division VI. It cost them their shot at a home playoff game as well. Instead, they were forced to open on the road against the fourth seeded Parlier Panthers. The second place finishers in the West Sequoia League jumped on them early in the first inning to knock Farmersville out 6-2. Only Nathalia Navarro had multiple hits as she went 2-3.
