Orange County: Athletes of the week

Kaitlin Park, Beckman, Jr.

Chose the opportune time to card the best score of her career, a six-under-par 66 at The Golf Club at Rancho California, to win the WSCGA Southern California Championships by two strokes. Her previous low round had been a 68 at Tustin Ranch Golf Club. Park made some long putts – 25 and 30 feet – to advance to the state championship for the second consecutive year.

Paul Reynolds, Foothill, Sr.

One of the county's best water polo programs moved easily through the first two rounds of the Division 2 playoffs. Reynolds scored 17 of third-seeded Foothill's 29 playoff goals last week. He had 10 in a 13-6 win over University, seven in a 16-9 decision against Montebello. They play second-seeded Corona del Mar in the semifinals Wednesday at Irvine's Woollett Aquatic Center.
