Nasser, a sophomore from Sweetwater High School who won the 2014 state community long jump at 25 feet, 4.5 inches, beat four-year college opponents to win the event over the weekend with a 24-4 effort at the 37th Aztec Invitational hosted by San Diego State University.

He defeated Saturday's runner-up, Devin Harrison from Fresno State, who went 24 feet, 3.50 inches.

McWilliam, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound freshman right fielder from Westview High who red-shirted in 2014 at the University of New Mexico, slugged a three-run home run in a 14-8 win over San Diego City College, went 2-for-3 with a triple and 3 RBIs in an 11-0 win over the Knights and was 2-for-5 with a triple and 2 RBIs as the Olympians downed City College again 4-2.

McWilliam, who was last week's Southern California Player of the Week, has led the way as Mesa has won 7 of its last 8 games to move into third place behind PCAC leader and No. 2 Southern Cal-ranked Palomar and second-place Southwestern.

Receiving honorable mention were Palomar baseball pitcher Jake Barnett and Mesa volleyball player Donavon Harrison.

Barnett, a sophomore left-hander from Orange Glen High and a returning first-team All-PCAC selection, pitched eight innings of five-hit, shutout ball as the Comets completed a three-game sweep of Imperial Valley by winning 2-0. Barnett struck out eight and walked none as he advanced to 4-1 on the season with a 2.61 ERA (3-0, 1.44 in conference). Barnett has a 12-4 win-loss record dating back to the beginning of last season.

Harrison, an outside hitter, had 30 kills with 5 errors on 41 attempts for a .610 hitting percentage as the Olympians knocked off Palomar in four sets 24-26, 25-18, 25-20, 25-18.
