The CIF Sac-Joaquin Section awarded $35,600 in scholarships last month to the 51 winners of the A. Dale Lacky/CSEA Scholarships for outstanding athletic performance, community service and academic success during their four years of high school.

Two local athletes, El Dorado’s Michael Weston and Oak Ridge’s Trent Buenzli, each received $600.

The award, named after former Section and State CIF President, A. Dale Lacky, recognizes the top male and female student-athletes within the Section.

MICHAEL WESTON — Weston played basketball and baseball for all four years and also played water polo for two years. In water polo, he was the starting goalie. He set a record for saves (22) in a game his sophomore year. He’s been the starting first baseman all four years of baseball. He’s a member of the Speech and Debate Team and Math Steeplechase competitor and he’s a National Merit Scholar finalist. He’s also won the Marine Corps Award for scholastic excellence, a delegate to Boys State and he’s an AP Scholar with honors. He volunteers at the El Dorado County Animal Shelter, the El Dorado County Food Bank and as a chemistry tutor. Michael has a 4.41 GPA, No. 1 in his class of 354. He is undecided in his college choice, where he will major in chemistry. He was the valedictorian for El Dorado’s Class of 2014 at last Saturday’s graduation ceremonies.

TRENT BUENZLI — Buenzli played football for four years and basketball for two seasons. In football, he was the team captain twice, won the Trojan Award (for outstanding leadership, academics and community service), was named all-league twice, was the team MVP and was the Delta River League’s defensive player of the year. He is an AP Scholar with Distinction and a member of the Boy Scouts, National Honor Society, Renaissance Club, Italian Club, Do Something Club and American Red Cross Club. He was an actor on the TV series “Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout?” He’s a participant in Evening of Dreams (a prom for special needs teens), a West Coast youth football coach and he volunteers as a tutor. Trent has a 4.34 GPA, No. 4 in his class of 544. He will attend the University of Pennsylvania, where he will major in finance with the future goal of going into that field.
