Terrell, Mendoza honored

North Tahoe High senior Ernesto Mendoza and Truckee High junior Alexa Terrell are the Sierra Sun’s “Athletes of the Week” from Oct. 9-14.

– Terrell, a middle blocker on the Truckee volleyball team, put in a solid effort in the Wolverines’ hard-fought loss in five sets to first-place Yerington on Friday, finishing with 10 kills, three blocks and two service aces. Terrell also came up big in the Wolverines three-set victory over Fernley on Saturday. In that match the junior had eight kills, two blocks and two service aces. Look for Terrell to post more impressive stats this season, as well as next year when she is a senior.

– Mendoza, a senior running back and defensive back on the North Tahoe football team, tallied three touchdowns and a two-point conversion in Saturday’s 41-12 victory over Mineral County. Mendoza has been the go-to guy all season running the ball. Look for him to continue breaking through opposing defensive lines and into the backfield the remaining two weeks of the season.
