Each week, Murrieta 24/7 honors top student-athletes at Murrieta Valley High School. The coach of each varsity sport is allowed to select one athlete based on the previous week's performances or on potential shown by the athlete. Here are this week's Murrieta Valley High School Athletes of the Week:

Junior infielder Amber Bishop of the softball team had huge performances in three games of the Santiago Spring Fling Tournament over spring break. She was 10 for 11 with two doubles, one home run and seven RBIs. The Nighthawks are 15-5 overall.

Senior pitcher Nicko Cottone had winning performances against Murrieta Mesa and Charter Oak for the Murrieta Valley baseball team, which is 13-3 overall. Cottone is 4-0 this season.

David Ramirez won all three sets against his opponents in leading the Nighthawks tennis team to victory over Chaparral.

Kyle Bachelor of the golf team had three subpar rounds of 35, 35 and 70 in a recent 18-hole match.

These athletes will be eligible for selection as Murrieta Valley High School's Athletes of the Month, which will be announced in early May. Anyone wishing to order a glossy print of this article with photo may do so by emailing 

Golf standout Sage Casaga and track and field star Alexandria Jones of Murrieta Valley High School have been honored as the Murrieta 24/7 Athletes of the Month, sponsored by SunPro Solar.

Casaga won the CIF Southern Section individual championship last year, shooting a round of 68 at Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena. He went on to finish fourth in the state. This year, he has performed solidly as team captain for the Nighthawks.

"I've been very consistent lately," said the senior. "I haven't had any great rounds yet, but I'm always consistently around par.

"Being a captain this year is great. We have a lot of underclassmen, so I try to help with things they need to learn, like working together as a team.

Casaga has been playing golf competitively since the age of 10 but first tried the game at age 4.

"My dad would take us down to the range and we'd hit whiffle balls around," he recalled.

Casaga placed fifth in a tournament at Woods Valley Golf Club earlier this season. He plays in junior tournaments and plans to start playing amateur events.

Jones is just a junior but has posted some outstanding times for the girls track team. She placed fifth in the 200 meters and ninth in the 100 at a big invitational at Roosevelt High earlier this season.

In a meet at Heritage High School in Menifee, Jones posted personal bests of 13.12 in the 100 and 27.2 in the 200. 

"I finished second in both of those races and had my personal records, so that was a big boost for me," she said. Her goal is to break 13 in the 100 and 27 in the 200.

Welcome to Nighthawk athletics where tradition and excellence come together on the playing fields and in the classroom. Nighthawk athletic teams have a long and storied tradition in Southwest Riverside County. In our brief history MVHS athletic teams have won over 100 league championships. The Nighthawks can also boast of 28 CIF championship game appearances, with 20 CIF championships. Our athletes and coaches continue to work hard at making Nighthawk athletics one of the premier programs in the Temecula/Murrieta area.


Murrieta Valley High School competes in 22 sports with over 47 teams competing at the Varsity, Junior Varsity and freshmen level. Participation in MVHS athletics means more than competition between individuals or teams representing different high schools. It teaches fair play and sportsmanship, and understanding and appreciation of teamwork. The legacy of our athletic program will be measured by more than wins and losses, but more by the experience our athletes receive.


Participation on a Nighthawk athletic team is a privilege that is extended to every student who is eligible under regulations set forth by the California Interscholastic Federation, the MVUSD, and Murrieta Valley High School. The conduct of a nighthawk athlete is closely observed on campus as well as in the community. It is important that a Nighthawk athlete conduct themselves at all times and places with class and dignity.


On behalf of the athletic department, I welcome you to the challenge of Nighthawk Athletics. I hope your experience is both a positive and rewarding one.



Darin Mott

Nighthawk Athletic Director
