The Orange County boys athlete of the week:
Name: David Mitzner
Noteworthy: The goalkeeper had eight saves as the Friars defeated Cathedral of Los Angeles on penalty kicks 3-2 in a CIF-SS Division 1 semifinal. Mitzner, who signed with Portland, made three stops in penalty kicks. “He could have been nervous and buckled under pressure,” said Servite coach Jon Spencer, “but he rose to the occasion like we knew he would.” Mitzner (6-3, 180) has a 3.6 grade-point average.
