... and on the scoreboard, with its first Performer of the Week this season. Congratulations to La Sierra volleyball's Caitlin Haughton, who pulled in more than 40 percent of the vote to outdistance Redlands football's Mike Nicolini.
Here's her bio page on the La Sierra athletics website. Congratulations to Caitlin, and to all of this week's nominees.
(Incidentally, continuing the international theme of this poll, one of Nicolini's 171 votes came from Canada, Burnaby, B.C. to be exact. Guess word is spreading.)
This week's school standings show Cal Baptist still in the lead because of volume of nominees, but La Sierra's vote totals have been truly impressive, though Redlands has a higher average of votes per nominee.
