Alyssa Perez, Nicole Ley and Angel Ochoa earn ACCAC Player of the Week honors

Alyssa Perez (Pima)

Former Marana standout Alyssa Perez eared her second ACCAC Player of the Week nod after she helped Pima go 2-0 with wins over Mesa and South Mountain. She shot 50 percent from the floor (10-for-20) and averaged 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists.

Perez started in all 26 games and is averaging 10.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.5 steals per game.

Nicole Ley (CAC)

Former Rio Rico softball standout Nicole Ley earned ACCAC Player of the Week honors after going 5-gor-8 in two wins for Central Arizona. Ley had a double and home run and drove in five runs.

Former Canyon del Oro standout Angel Ochoa was selected ACCAC Division I Player of the Week for Pima. Ochoa went 3-for-8 (.375) with six RBIs and two runs scored in the Aztec sweep over Arizona Western. He hit a three-run RBI double and a two-run RBI single in the second game alone.

Ochoa is batting .325 with 12 RBIs, eight runs and seven walks in 40 at-bats so far this season.

Angel Ochoa (Pima)

This list will be updated all year in an effort to recognize all former local prep stars who have gone on to achieve either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level. These are not high school awards but collegiate and professional recognitions. NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS. If you are aware of anything I have missed along the way, please let me know.
