Trhac, a sophomore from Del Norte High School, won the PCAC singles title for the second straight year and teamed with Kyle Le to win his second consecutive conference doubles title to conclude the PCAC Championships at Grossmont College’s courts.

Trhac turned back Kimo Barrere of San Diego Mesa 6-1, 7-6 (7) for his repeat singles title, advancing to 23-1 on the season. His only 2017 loss has been to Cerritos’ Sasha Krasnov from School 106 in Odessa, Ukraine on Feb. 21.

Trhac and new partner Le won the conference doubles championship with a 6-1, 3-6, 10-4 victory over Grossmont’s Morgan Peyre and Maab Al Jumaili in the finals.

Honorable mention was awarded to Mesa diver Mike McKinney, Palomar baseball player Conor McKenna and Southwestern baseball player Kenny Ohlhauser.

McKinney, a 63-year old freshman who last competed at Madison High School (Class of 1971), won the PCAC 3-meter (124.25 points) and 1-Meter (148.80 points) titles in the conference finals that were held in conjunction with the Southern California Diving Regionals at El Camino College. McKinney’s eighth-place finish on the 3-meter board qualified him for the CCCAA State Swimming & Diving Championships May 4-6 at East Los Angeles College. Since his days at a diver at Madison, McKinney earned a BA degree from UC San Diego in art and music and an MA from Portland State University in education.

McKenna, a freshman third baseman from Carlsbad High School for a Palomar team that is 27-6 on the season, is tied for the PCAC lead with Grossmont at 17-1 and has won 14 straight games, is hitting .398 for the Comets. He helped Palomar to a 3-game sweep of College of the Desert last week. McKenna went 4-for-4 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI as the Comets won game 1 by a 19-4 score. He was 2-for-4 with a triple and 4 RBIs in a 6-3 win in game 2. And, in game 3, McKenna was 2-for-6 with a triple, 2 runs scored and an RBI in Palomar’s 20-4 victory.

Ohlhauser, Southwestern’s freshman right fielder from El Capitan High School, helped lead the Jaguars to a 3-game sweep of Mesa that ran their winning streak to 10 games. Ohlhauser, Southwestern’s lead-off hitter, went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple, a walk and 4 runs scored in game 1, a 7-5 victory for the Jaguars. In game 2, he was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a 4-2 win. And, in game 3, Ohlhauser went 3-for-5 with a double, a walk, an RBI and 2 runs scored as Southwestern beat the Olympians 12-4.
