Dons Tennis Player and Footballer Honored

Christopher Jellison and Madison Hale.

It was an exciting week on the tennis court and football field for Santa Barbara High, and Madison Hale and Christopher Jellison were instrumental in their respective teams posting big wins.

Hale rallied from a 5-1 deficit in her first-round set against CIF Division 1 fourth-ranked Corona del Mar and won 7-6, sparking the Dons to a 10-8 road victory. Coach Greg Tebbe said the senior’s comeback win gave the Dons a psychological edge for the rest of the match.

On the football field, “Tick” Jellison became a big-play threat for Santa Barbara. The sophomore caught 10 passes for 167 yards and three touchdowns as the Dons won their third straight game, 35-28 over Royal at Peabody Stadium.
