Boys Athlete of the Week:

Arcadia boys volleyball coach Stephen Bernabe couldn’t have asked for a better week in his first year leading the Apaches’ boys program.

AHS went 9-0, including wins over South Pasadena, Temple City and Maranatha.

And then on Saturday, the Apaches won the Los Altos Tournament’s Gold Division by going 6-0.

Arcadia defeated Diamond Ranch, La Mirada, Whittier, Valley Christian and La Canada twice.

And their senior setter, and captain, Matthew Le, was named the Tournament MVP.

Matthew Le’s stats for the week:
Mon vs South Pasadena: six kills, three digs, three aces and four blocks
Wed vs Temple City: six kills, one dig, two aces and two blocks
Fri vs Maranatha: seven kills, four digs and four blocks
Sat vs La Canada: 12 kills, five digs, two aces and three blocks
Sat vs Diamond Ranch: five kills, six digs and two aces
Sat vs La Mirada: five kills, three digs and two aces
Sat vs Whittier: six kills, three digs and two aces
Sat vs Valley Christian: nine kills, four digs, two aces and five blocks
Sat vs La Canada: six kills, three digs, three aces and four blocks

Up next: The Apaches will host La Salle (1-6) on Monday afternoon.


Arcadia coach, Stephen Bernabe: “”I am so proud of him for accomplishing this. Matthew Le is the top setter in this area and he is our starting setter/captain. In nine games, he is averaging almost 10 kills as a setter, and that is with me taking him out of lineups to give others a chance for game experience. He is by far the most athletic setter in this area and showcased his ability this past weekend. I am most appreciative of his fire and competitiveness as a coach. When coaches talk smack about him, I know we are going to win that game. I am grateful to be able to work with him and that we have a mutual respect for each other. He has earned this and I hope he continues to set the tone for future players.”
