Cabrillo High School basketball players Erin Jenkins and LeAndrew Knight were honored as the Northern Santa Barbara County Athletic Round Table Athletes of the Week Monday afternoon.
Jenkins combined for 64 points, 23 rebounds, 12 assists, and seven steals during the annual Rob Diaz Tournament at Coachella Valley High School. She was also named the tournament MVP.
"We didn't know what we were expecting to see. We thought there was going to be tougher opponents down there but we came off really strong," Jenkins said. "My teammates did really well, they handled the ball and played well."
Knight was named the male Athlete of the Week for his performance during the Nordhoff Tournament. The senior point guard was just shy of a triple-double after recording 18 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists. Knight also scored a career-high of 47 points against Sanger in Saturday's 80-64 loss.
"I was able to score very well, get to the basket easy, get my shot going. I got a 47-point game and I just went out there and knew it was going to be a tough game especially since we were short handed. I just had to do what I could to put us in the best position to win," Knight said.
Caltrans says it hopes to have some sort of timeline Monday on when Highway 101 may reopen in the Montecito area.

Approximately 95,000 cars pass through this section of the busy freeway on a normal day, so the closure is forcing people to look for other ways to get around. Here some ways to get around the closure by car, train, ferry or plane. It is an important reminder that drivers cannot currently get around the closure by taking Highway 192 or other side...
