22/23 Spotlight Athletes

2023 - Boys Volleyball

Ryan Machado - 8th

Ryan "The Whipmaster" Machado is a student athlete that showed tremendous growth from the start of the season to the end of the season. His willingness to learn, attitude, and humor always puts his teammates and coach into the right frame of mind to be relaxed and ready to play. Not only does he have an underhand serve sent down from the God's but his whiplike approach on his spikes always land for points when the opportunity presents itself. Overall he is a great young man with leadership skills that will carry him a long way as he progresses through his athletic and academic careers.  

       Francisco Juarez Gonzalez - 7th

Over the course of the season, Cisco became a force to be reckoned with! His improvement through the season is a tribute to the hard work that he put in during each practice and every opportunity he got to be on the court. Cisco is a favorite among his teammates for his positive energy and effort that he puts into every point.  During the playoffs at league championship he hyped his teammates up, and helped keep the energy positive with his play leading to a 2nd place finish. Hopefully he continues to play volleyball as he has the mindset, effort, and ability to grow into a dominant player in the future!

2023 - Girls Soccer

Sophie is an incredible athlete that never shied away from a challenge; she is a force to be reckoned with. She is a supportive teammate, takes charge where she needs it, and she is as nice as could be. As captain, she led us in the direction we needed as a team and the players looked up to her as their leader. She helped me whenever I needed it and her willingness to help our team wherever we needed it, makes her a standout player in my opinion. I know she has a long soccer career ahead of her and she will add to every team she's a part of in the future. 

2023 - Boys Soccer

Christian Rivera

Christian is a constant force on and off the field. He shows calmness in all situations. Off the field, Christian is rocking straight A's. On the field, he is known as the Mesa Messi because of his feet skills, low center of gravity, and his ability to change any game with just one shot. Christian is kind-hearted and shows what it truly means to be RRAD. Christian has helped lead Mesa to an almost perfect season. There is no doubt Christian will be a force of nature in soccer for many years to come.  

2023 - Girls Basketball

Analiza Silva - 8th Girls

Analiza was chosen as the Mesa 8th- Grade Girls Basketball Spotlight Athlete based on work-ethic, effort, leadership and the positive energy she brought to the team.  She worked year round to become a better basketball player constantly pushing herself and striving to improve.  Ana was chosen as the team captain because of her ability to help others not only on the court but also off the court.  She has become a true student of the game who continually works on her improving her fundamentals and knowledge of the sport.  Ana was a significant contributor to her team throughout the season having multiple games with double digit points, rebounds and assists.  Ana is determined not only to play Varsity in high school but  at the college level.   

Tasi Maumausolo Matagi- 7th Girls

Tasi was chosen as our Mesa 7th grade Girls Basketball Spotlight Athlete for the 2023 season.  She was a great leader for our team, on and off the court.  She personified the energy and dedication of our team in constantly working hard to improve.  We knew that we could always count on her to give her very best at practice and in any game situation. She was a powerful inside presence all season long at both ends of the court, but was also a player that could control the ball and fill a variety of roles. Tasi's focus and game awareness were always present.  She and her sister Taya would dominant the paint when playing together, but could also be counted on to help out wherever possible at Mesa home games.  She has a kind and giving heart, an intense competitive nature, and a bright future in any athletic endeavor that she chooses. Way to go, Tasi!    

2022 - Boys Basketball

Raleigh Hartnell - 8th Boys

Raleigh represents every quality that we try to cultivate in our athletes and team.  He is hard-working, enthusiastic, and a great teammate.  He always shows a positive attitude and gives his best effort. Following the 2021 season, in which Raleigh led our "Baller" team in a great showing, he dedicated himself to becoming a better all-around basketball player.  "Big Body" Raleigh may not be the largest player on the court in stature, but he plays the game with the largest amount of heart possible.  From playing tenacious defense to sacrificing his body to set screens and dive on loose balls, Raleigh is a model player on the court.  His on-court commitment is matched by his off-court character as a great friend, helper, and leader for all Mesa students and staff.
I am proud to honor Raleigh "Big Body" Hartnell as this season's Spotlight Athlete.  Congratulations Raleigh, on an inspiring season!  

Michael Russel - 7th Boys

Michael Russell is a great basketball player and an even better person. Michael treats every practice with the same intensity that he displays in the games. He's always striving to learn and improve his basketball skills. Michael has the respect of his coaches and fellow players and his hard work shows in every game. He is a team leader and has helped Mesa's 7th-grade basketball team to an almost perfect season. 

2022 - Cross Country 

Roxanne McLean - 7th Girls  

Roxanne is always at practice and always gives 100%. She pushes those around her to be their best. Her best result to date is 3rd place at the Los Ranchos invitational. She has finished in the top 10 in every race this season. On top of this, she's really fun, a joy to be around, and an inspiration to her fellow athletes as well as her coaches. Go, Roxanne! - Coach Slater

Marcus Napoli - 8th Boys 

Marcus has been committed to the Mesa XC team since the very first day of the season! He works hard every single day whether it is out in PE or practice to improve his times and running ability.  Marcus is an excellent example to every runner on the team of what it means to push yourself. This season Marcus has been one of our top 3 boys in every race. His best time this season was 7:36 at our Mesa Challenge course in Nipomo and his favorite direction to run in for practice is the "Golfer's Route". The Mesa XC team will truly miss his hard work and leadership next year!  - Coach Nichols

2022 - Girls Volleyball 

Mila Reid - 8th Grade

Mila is a competitive athlete that is always striving to get better, and her passion for volleyball truly shows. Mila has been playing volleyball for over 6 years now, and she loves the sport! She has an older sister that plays volleyball at Nipomo High School, something that Mila is looking forward to doing next year. This year, she dominated other teams with her serve and had important kills that really helped Mesa gain momentum. Her favorite hobbies are playing volleyball and hanging out with friends. Mila's favorite class is yearbook, and her goal is to play volleyball in college. Great job Mila! 

Sierra Hebert - 7th Grade

Sierra was a great player and leader throughout the season. She played a big role in Mesa's 7th Grade Volleyball earning the title of South County Champions!  Her athleticism and determination were matched by Team Commitment and a great work ethic.  She was also hustling at practice and in games, which would spark other players to give their all to keep our rallies going.  She was always upbeat, energetic, and positive, making her a valuable player throughout the Championship season.  Congratulations, Sierra!!!! -Coach Lindgren 

 2023 - Wrestling

The whole wrestling team has to be spotlighted as both the boys and girls teams brought home the county championship trophy.  That has only been done twice (both by Mesa) since the start of the county championship inception in 2017.  In fact, the Mesa girls team has brought the championship trophy back to Mesa ALL of those years.  Mesa finished their final tournament with 12 Champions, 6 other finalist, and 1 fourth place finish.  Congrats on a fantastic season and way to make all your coaches proud!
