Welcome to Murrieta Valley Athletics
Athletes of the Week
Each week of the school year, 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:
Hailey Nichols shot her season low score of 43 in a golf match against Temescal Canyon on Sept. 9.
"Hailey has been a great captain this season," said her coach, Rogelio Gallegos. "She really cares about all her teammates and she always has a positive attitude on the golf course."
Vanessa Garcia, just a freshman, had a great first race for the girls cross country team last week.
"We raced for the first time this season in Laguna Hills," reported coach Fabrice Vuillemey. "The weather conditions were terrible, with 60 percent humidity. Vanessa ended up to be the second fastest time for the team, which give her a varsity spot for the next race. She also finished 17th out of 172 athletes."
The boys cross country team is represented by Devon Smart, who also is a freshman.
"Devon is also a freshman," said Vuillemey. "He had an amazing race on Saturday, finishing 19th out of 216 runners. He raced so well that his time is only a few seconds away from our top athletes."
Jovana Kuljanin was honored for her fast start with the girls golf team.
These athletes will be eligible for selection as Murrieta Valley High School's Athletes of the Month, which will be announced the first week of October.

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.
Nighthawk Athletic Director
