Bay Area News Group girls high school athlete of the week: Jenna Balousek and Morgan Overton

Because of a production error, the athlete of the week poll was not taken down Wednesday at 5 p.m. So this week, the top two finishers in the boys and girls polls have been named athletes of the week.

Carondelet lacrosse player Jenna Balousek and Dublin lacrosse player Morgan Overton are the Bay Area News Group’s girls high school athlete of the week for March 5-11.

Balousek, also a junior, scored three goals and had one assist in the Cougars’ matchup against Campolindo. In the previous game against Dublin, she put in four goals and dished out two assists.

Overton, a junior, scored four goals, had five draw controls and contributed an assist in Dublin’s 15-4 victory over Foothill. The junior scored a goal against Marin Catholic a few days later.

Congratulations to all the candidates for this week’s recognition.

To nominate an athlete for next week’s poll, email by Monday, March 20, at 11 a.m. Please include stats and team results.

We also review stats submitted to by coaches/team statisticians for consideration.

Winners are announced each Friday on the Mercury News & East Bay Times websites and, starting Sept. 30, in the print edition of the Mercury News and EB Times sports sections.
