Athlete of the Week

MILES PARTAIN

An early commit to UCLA, Miles and partner Paul Lotman   upset three duos, including No. 4-seeded Trevor Crabb and Reid Priddy, while advancing to the fourth round of the winner’s bracket at last weekend’s  AVP Chicago Gold Series event and finishing fifth. Having just led Palisades High’s boys volleyball team to the City Open Division title along with his older sibling Marcus (who graduated in the spring), the Dolphins senior is even better on the beach. The brothers became the youngest team to advance from an AVP qualifier into the main draw, doing so in Hermosa Beach in July 2017 when Miles was only 15 years, seven months old.
