Girls Athlete of the Week:

In a remarkable five-day stretch, Etiwanda’s Cameryn Ortega made a lifetime of memories for herself.

After Alyssa Galindo wrapped up a CIF-SS Division 3 championship two weeks ago in the circle, Ortega took over the pitching duties for the entirely of the three-game CIF State Division 2 Southern California Regional playoffs.

In wins over Paraclete (10-0), Granada Hills Charter (1-0) and Mater Dei Catholic (5-4), the EHS senior went 18 2/3 innings and she didn’t allow an earned run.

To make the title even more satisfying for Ortega and her girls, the Eagles had to secure road wins at No. 2 seeded (GHC) and No. 1 (MDC) to earn their championship.

On Tuesday, Ortega went all six innings in a 10-0 mercy-rule victory over Paraclete, and she tossed a two-hit shutout.

Ortega walked a pair and fanned six PHS batters.

Two days later, Ortega threw a two-hit shutout in the Eagles 1-0 victory at Granada Hills Charter.

Ortega didn’t issue a base on balls and she struck out seven.

In Saturday’s title tilt, Ortega went 5 2/3 innings, allowing a pair of unearned run on three hits.

She issued five walks and struck out seven.

Over the past five days, Ortega finished her prep career by going 16 2/3 innings, not allowing an unearned run and scattering seven hits.

Ortega walked seven and struck out 20 opposing batters.

Etiwanda’s CIF State D-2 Title Run:
Tuesday: EHS 10, Paraclete 0 in six innings
Thursday: EHS 1, Granada Hills Charter 0
Saturday: EHS 5, Mater Dei Catholic 4
