Frank Christy, a sophomore from Casa Grande High School in Petaluma and the PCAC Player of the Year as Comets' catcher, is projected to go high in next month's draft.

Entering this weekend's best 2-of-3 Sectional series against Saddleback, the last stop before the State Final Four, he's second in California with 10 home runs, just 1 HR behind the leader, and is third in the state in RBIs with 50.

On Monday, Christy slugged a 2-run home run, also singled, and drove in three runs for the day as the Comets swept their Super Regional series from Irvine Valley 11-1.

He leads Palomar with a .333 batting average and has a .621 slugging percentage, a .414 on-base percentage, 12 doubles, 1 triple, the 10 home runs and 9 stolen bases on 11 attempts.

The Coyotes' Law, a sophomore out of Otay Ranch High School who previous cleared 16 feet, 0.91 inches to win the pole vault at the PCAC finals, went 15 feet, 10.15 inches to finish second in Saturday's Southern California Championships.

He went the same height as the first-place finisher in the event, Glendale's Jeremy Kimmer, and will be among the gold-medal favorites in the state meet this weekend at College of San Mateo.

Honorable mention went to Palomar golfer Nick Bellstrom, a sophomore from Torrey Pines High School who shot a 73 in the second round in winds up to 50 miles per hour to take medalist honors in the PCAC Tournament at Canyon Crest Golf Club in Riverside. His victory lifted Palomar to the tournament championship and the overall conference title. The Comets defeated second-place College of the Desert by nine strokes, snapping the Roadrunners' streak of championships in the various conferences they've played in over the years at 27.
