Salazar, the Griffins' freshman center fielder from Helix High School, had a 7-for-11 opening week of the season as Grossmont went 3-0.

She came up big as the G-House pounded Golden West 10-3 and swept two games from Fullerton 8-4 and 8-1. The Hornets were coming off a 9-7 upset win over defending state champion Palomar earlier in the week.

Salazar went 2-for-3 vs. Golden West, 3-for-4 in the first game against Fullerton and 2-for-4 in the second game vs. the Hornets. She drove in four runs for the week, scored five runs and played solid defense.

Johnson, a 5-foot-9 freshman guard from Elsinore High School, came off the bench with big back-to-back performances as No. 1-ranked Mt. San Jac won two more games to advance to 23-0 on the season and 8-0 to continue to lead the PCAC by a game over No. 5-ranked Palomar. Johnson contributed 12 points, going 4-for-6 from the field and 4-for-4 from the free throw line, as the Eagles downed San Diego Mesa 88-37. Her 15 points, which came on 6-for-10 shooting, 1-for-1 from behind the 3-point arc and 2-for-2 from the free throw line, helped Mt. San Jac defeat Southwestern 100-45 after opening a 30-9 lead in the first quarter.

Honorable mention went to Palomar softball player Moriah Lopez, Imperial Valley softball player Keana Tamayo and Grossmont softball player Rachel Everett.

Lopez, a freshman utility player from San Jacinto Academy, went 6-for-7 in the Comets' first two games of the season. She went 3-for-4 with a double against Fullerton, then was 3-for-3 and drove in a run in a 4-3 win over traditional power Cerritos.

Tamayo, a freshman from El Centro Southwest High School, led IVC to a 7-2 victory over College of the Desert to open the season as she went 4-for-5 with a double and three RBIs to lead a 15-hit attack for the Arabs.

Everett, a freshman pitcher/outfielder out of Bonita Vista High School, went 4-for-8 with a triple and a double in Grossmont's first three games, driving in five runs and scoring three times. She pitched a complete-game win, allowing one run, in the second game against Fullerton, and threw hitless, scoreless ball over the final two innings to close out the win over Golden West.
