Athletes of the Week

UCSB’s Nick DePuy and DP’s Bella Vigna Honored

Terrific ball striking was the name of the game for Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Athletes of the Week Nick DePuy of UCSB and Bella Vigna of Dos Pueblos High.

Vigna does her ball striking on the golf course. The freshman shot a school-record 4-under par 31 at Buenaventura Golf Course to lead the undefeated Chargers to a season-low 188 in a Channel League victory over Buena.

DePuy has become quite the ball striker for the UCSB men’s soccer team. Last week, he delivered the game-winning goals in Big West victories over Cal State Northridge (2-1) and UC Irvine (1-0). The strike against Irvine was a 35-yard bomb in the last 36 seconds of regulation time. The Gauchos are 6-3-1 and have won four straight matches.
