Cabrillo’s Reggie Orr and Malia Loos of Santa Ynez were named Northern Santa Barbara County Athletic Round Table Athletes of the Week.
Orr, the male athlete of the week, is a shooting guard on the Conquistadores’ boys basketball team. In last week’s 49-46 victory over rival Lompoc, Orr scored 21 points and guided the Conqs to an 11-2 run to seal the win in the 4th quarter. Orr says his team has to keep playing tough to get more victories like that in the future.
“We just have to keep working hard, doing the little things to get us wins like rebounding, boxing out, and diving on the floor for loose balls,” Orr said.
Loos, the female athlete of the week, helped the Pirates’ girls basketball team earn a pair of Channel League victories last week while leading the team in scoring. Loos also broke the program’s all-time record for three-pointers made with 131. Loos applauded her teammates in helping her break the record.
“I would say my team helped a lot more than I did,” Loos said. “I kind of just stand in the corner and they pass me the ball. I feel good that I can help them out with some threes.”
