Friend is MVP, 5 Wildcats All-VOL

With the way Sonora volleyball blitzed through the Valley Oak League this season, there’s no surprise the Wildcats also dominated the postseason awards.

Sonora had six players, all juniors, honored by the VOL for its title-winning season.

Wildcat Shannon Friend was named the league’s Most Valuable Player. The outside hitter was a dominant kill machine and simply couldn’t be stopped, often hitting over and through defenders.

The Sonora Wildcats girls’ basketball team beat cross-county rival, the Summerville Bears, 47-22 on Tuesday in Tuolumne.

Although the Wildcats won by 25 points, the game was a lot closer than the score indicated.

Sonora junior Sandra Renda put up a prayer from distance as the buzzer sounded to lead the Wildcats into the break with a 24-19 advantage.

That shot was the needle in the arm that Sonora needed to boost its confidence.

“Sandra hit a deep three pointer to end the half to build some momentum,” said Wildcats head coach Amy Santos. “We just kind of got on a streak and rode it all the way to the end.”


Henington scores 37, Wildcats beat Bullfrogs

Bailey Henington’s big day on the basketball court was too much for Bret Harte.

Behind Henington’s jaw-dropping 37 points, the Wildcats outlasted the Bullfrogs 56-45 to take third place on Saturday at the 40th Annual Sonora Girls’ Basketball Tournament.

Despite joining the team less than a week ago because Henington was a member of the Wildcats Division IV CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Championship volleyball squad, who also made a run at the State title, the standout junior had one of the best performances in Sonora head coach Amy Santos’ career.

“She was on fire,” Santos said. “She played a great game. It was a really good game for her. I mean 37 points — I don’t think I have had a player score that many before.”
