Tritons sophomore forward Blayne Martinez has played a crucial role in the San Clemente boys soccer teams’ run to a South Coast League title and his recent performance down the stretch is why he’s our Athlete of the Week.
In the Tritons’ title-clinching 2-0 win over Mission Viejo on February 2, Martinez scored a goal and tallied an assist. The goal was Martinez’s 19th of the year, which ranks second on the team and adds to his growing school sophomore scoring record. The assist increased his season total to four. Martinez is now second on the team in total points with 34.
