LA South: Athletes of the Week

Dominique Small, Mayfair, Sr.

A week after causing all sorts of problems for No. 4 Lakewood, Small rushed for 235 yards and three touchdowns to help Mayfair to its first win of the season on Friday at Valley Christian. They weren’t a cheap 235, either. The senior carried the ball 38 times, this after recording nearly 200 yards rushing in a 24-14 loss at Lakewood. How vital was he for the Monsoons? Mayfair had just four yards passing Friday

Kelly Johnson, Palos Verdes, Jr.

The junior outside hitter guided the Palos Verdes girls volleyball team to the North Torrance Tournament title, registered 18 kills and 21 assists in a midweek contest versus North Torrance and helping the Sea Kings come back from an early deficit against Chadwick in the final on Saturday.
