ESCALON—There was no loser Monday night when the Bret Harte Bullfrogs traveled to Escalon to take on the Cougars. Yes, after 48 minutes, the Engle Field scoreboard read 63-21 in favor of Escalon and the records will show they won the game.
But for a team that came from a town that has had homes evacuated due to the Butte Fire, and was able to put that behind them and play a game, a game which they love, made them winners.

Land leads Wildcat runners in Sacramento

In 2014, Sonora Wildcat cross country runner Cassi Land was the fastest freshman at the prestigious Jesuit/Davis Invitational, finishing fifth in 19 minutes, 40 seconds.
As a sophomore this season, she was again the fastest underclassman Saturday and beat that time by 1 minute, 30 seconds.

Bears rally but fall short vs. Pride in overtime

SACRAMENTO — The Summerville Bears huddled in the end zone Friday night at halftime trailing the Bradshaw Christian Pride 35-21.
The Summerville coaching staff was not yelling or throwing clipboards in disgust, but rather using the final few minutes of the break to teach and make adjustments.
The Bears listened intently. The only noise, other than the coaches, was the rumble from generators charging the portable stadium lights.

Summerville wins thriller in 5 vs. Hughson

Sophomore Grace Fulkerson stood behind the service line in the fifth and final set with her Summerville Bears holding onto a 14-11 leadThursday night in Tuolumne over the Hughson Huskies. The southpaw served a rocket and handcuffed Hughson’s Megan Kosky, who was unable to pass the ball to a teammate. 

’Frogs look to improve passing vs. Escalon

Bret Harte head coach Casey Kester believes his team is just 90 yards away from unlocking limitless potential on offense.
He just need a little bit of help from his quarterback.
Due to the lack of effectiveness via the passing game last week — 2-for-10 for 30 yards — the offense became one-dimensional, contributing to a 45-6 defeat vs. Orestimba.

Butte Fire moves ’Cats from grid to gym

Read more... “C’mon guys, just because we’re in the gym, doesn’t mean you can take it easy, let’s go,” said Sonora co-offensive coordinator Kirk Clifton sternly to the Wildcats Thursday afternoon.
The team responded with more energy. The rumble of sneakers on the hardwood floor and pads cracking echoed through the rafters inside Bud Castle Gymnasium.

 At the end of practice Thursday afternoon, the Summerville Bears took a knee at the 50-yard line and ash from the Butte Fire in Amador and Calaveras counties fell from the sky and began to stick to Thorsted Field like a December snowstorm. 
Line coach Ryan Wynne held two T-shirts in his hands and showed them to the team. The shirts read, “Linemen Win Championships.”

Redskins seek 1st victory at Modesto Christian

Guy Dossi / Union Democrat Calaveras Redskins junior running back/safety Anthony Giangregorio runs Tuesday at practice.
 Anthony Giangregorio is a man of few words. However, the junior running back/safety lets his play on the field do his talking.
In the season’s first two games, Giangregorio has been the workhorse for the Calaveras Redskins offense, and had 15 tackles last week against Escalon. 
Though he has only accumulated eight quarters of varsity football, Giangregorio is playing like a seasoned veteran.

Wildcat defense raising the bar

Guy Dossi / Union Democrat Sonora senior defensive tackle Shane Petrey drives around a blocker Wednesday at practice at dry and dusty Bev Barron Field, the school’s baseball field.
 Sonora defensive coordinator Jed Malone made one of his biggest, most impressive calls last season when the Wildcats played the Hilmar Yellowjackets.
Sonora was down 24-19 with 1:30 remaining and Hilmar had the ball at their own 5.
Malone recognized what play was coming and called out to his defensive end, James Mitchell, to blitz. Soon after the snap, Mitchell was in the backfield and crushed a Yellowjacket ball carrier as he took the handoff in the endzone for a safety.

The Sonora Wildcats boys’ soccer team match Wednesday night against the Lathrop Spartans was canceled and will not be rescheduled.
The Spartans called off the match earlier in the day, but not quite early enough to quell the fans from showing up to watch the Wildcats.
Sonora plays its last preseason game today at 6:30 p.m. against Oakdale at Dunlavy Field.
