We are excited to bring you our first 65 Sports weekly round up. We will get you up to date of sports happening in your area.

Although we are biased we do want to start out by pointing out a big game this week by Kiera LeRoy, who yes she is my daughter and a new reporter for 65 Sports, but she also did accomplish something quite amazing. Kiera had 9 blocks in her game on Tuesday afternoon for the Rocklin Gateway Gaters Vs. Western Sierra. Although I struggled even mentioning it, I figured I might as well get it out of the way and honor the great athletic performance, even though I was concerned about having bias as her father.
Adding to that story the Rocklin Gateway Gators are now 4-0 on the season and are heading into what may be the toughest game of their season against Bowman at Bowman. Bowman is also 4-0 on the season. This game expects to have a championship feel to it on Tuesday night.
