Tri-Valley Athletes of the Week

Tom Hemmingsen (Monte Vista) and Diana George (Livermore) have been named Tri-Valley Athletes of the Week …..

Tom Hemmingsen, Monte Vista, Football — In the Mustang’s most important non-league game of the season, a 32-29 win against Pittsburg, Hemmingsen had a career night. He caught nine passes for 230 yards, none bigger than his final grab, a 27-yard catch that setup teammate Brendan Garcia for the game-winning field goal. Hemmingsen started out just as well, hauling in a 53-yard touchdown on the game’s third play. He also returned a punt 63 yards for a touchdown. Game story.

Diana George, Livermore, Cross CountryGeorge won the Lowell Invitational in San Francisco, finishing the 2.93 mile course in 17:31. Her closest competitor in the field of 123 crossed the line nearly 17 seconds later. Dye stat race results

    Congrats to both kids on their selection….Diana George has been a great story since she started running cross country just to make friends as a freshman….

    Hard to believe she’s still at Livermore, seems like she’s been there for 20 years. Best of luck to both all season long.
