Kish records seven strikeouts in Sonora’s 6-2 win

Jesse Jones / Union Democrat Sonora Widcat senior Joseph Kish (above) made his first apperance of the season in the team’s 6-2 win over Calaveras on Friday in San Andreas.
It was a big weekend for the Sonora Wildcats baseball team.

Sonora picked up two victories, a 6-2 Mother Lode League win over Calaveras on Friday in San Andreas and a 18-4 road rout of Hilmar on Saturday. In all, the Wildcats won all three of their games last week, which also included a 6-0 home shutout of the Amador Buffaloes last Wednesday.

“I thought we played well against Calaveras at times,” Sonora coach Scott Johnson said. “They were a tough team and we took advantage of a couple of their mistakes. Their starter (Travis Moore) was real strong. I was happy to get out of there with a win.

“We have a team that really is truly a team. They play together and they support each other. We’re looking for big things this year.”

Tyler leads Bears to win over BH

Bradley Tyler is emerging into a solid dual-threat for the Summerville Bears baseball team.

Tyler threw a complete game, striking out six and also drove in three runs to lift Summerville to a 10-0 Mother Lode League victory against Bret Harte on Friday in Angels Camp.

Hanging onto a 4-0 lead after the fifth, Tyler smashed a three-run double to help the Bears pull away with a big six-run sixth frame.

“Bradley Tyler, he was the player of the game,” Summerville coach Larry Gold said. “He just had a great presence on the mound and was able to do his job. He had a good defense behind him. It was great to see him have a great game.”

The Calaveras and Summerville boys golf team shot identical scores, a 241, after tallying each squad’s top five scores, but the Bears were credited with the victory on Thursday in a Mother Lode League match at Mountain Springs.

Summerville won 296-317 after the tiebreaker, which counts each team’s sixth and final score. 

Calaveras Redskin Austin Williams earned medalist honors with a match-low 38. Jake Grant added a 43, Kendall Clemens a 49, Hunter Gore a 53, Jacob Peters a 58 and Carson Cancruen a 76.

Max Wulf led the Bears with a 40, followed by Vince Boyack’s 43, Jonah Funk’s 51, Grant Bruchacek’s 53, Kaleb Clark’s 54 and Vance Flores’ 55 proved to be the difference in the tiebreaker.

Top Frog: BH picks Kester as new grid coach

Jesse Jones / Union Democrat New Bret Harte football coach Casey Kester (above) was put in charge of the program earlier this month.
Casey Kester wants to change the football culture at Bret Harte High School.

Kester, born in Paso Robles and raised on a cattle ranch, was named the new Bullfrogs varsity head coach on March 3 and his selection was officially approved six days later by the Bret Harte Union School Board.

“I’m trying to completely change the attitude,” Kester said. “I don’t think there’s a big difference between all the schools in the league, just a difference about the attitude. I just think Bret Harte has been down for so long that it’s become a place for everybody to come out and not play well and lose games. From what I see, it’s an attitude thing. I want to change that.”

‘Skins win: Bret Harte drops 5-run lead, falls to Calaveras

Jesse Jones / Union Democrat Calaveras High pitcher Dustin Bailey delivers a pitch in the Redskins’ 17-5 road win against their cross-county rivals, the Bret Harte Bullfrogs, on Wednesday in Angels Camp.
The Bret Harte Bullfrogs baseball team raced to a 5-0 lead after the second inning, but could not hold on, falling 17-5 to cross-county rival Calaveras on Wednesday in Angels Camp.

Bret Harte scored four runs in the first and added another in the second to grab a quick 5-0 advantage.

But Calaveras responded.

The Redskins tallied five runs in the top of the third to tie both team’s Mother Lode League openers at five. They secured the lead for good with a two-run fifth and sealed their first conference victory with an explosive 10-run sixth.

Preps roundup: S’ville tops Argonaut 7-6 in MLL opener

The Summerville baseball team scored all of its runs in the first inning and held on for a 7-6 win over Argonaut on Wednesday in the Mother Lode League opener for both teams in Tuolumne.

Senior infielder Bryce Farrell started the scoring affair with a sacrifice fly to spark a seven-run first inning. With two outs, the Bears tallied six runs on five hits and opened a 7-0 lead.

Summerville batted 10 times during that stretch.

“It was good that we jumped right out at the beginning,” Summerville coach Larry Gold said. “We got six hits in the first inning. After that, we only had two more hits, but it was nice to have that one big inning. It was a team effort. Everybody played their part and it took the whole team to be able to pull out the win.”

Sonora’s Henington named Most Outstanding

Bailey Henington had a winter season to remember.

Henington, a Sonora High senior, was recognized by the Mother Lode League girls’ basketball coaches as the Most Outstanding Player of the Year after leading the Wildcats to an 11-1 record and a share of the conference title.

“I was very proud of her,” Sonora coach Amy Santos said. “It’s nice because I can’t vote for my own players, so it’s a pretty big honor for her to be recognized by all the coaches in league. To recognize her in that way is a big deal.”

Court triumph: Sonora netters top Calaveras

The Sonora Wildcats co-ed tennis team’s Mother Lode League home opener played out almost flawlessly.

Sonora topped the Calaveras Redskins 7-2 on Tuesday in a match played at their home away from home Columbia College.

Singles players Spencer Lyons, Augustin Gayar and Hannah Smith each registered a win, and the doubles team of Louis Bouchet and Sammy Page, Ross Irwin and Duncan Ragland, Celia Cotrone and Bailey Johnson, and Zach Whitmer and Leah Dambacher also all combined for victories.

Lyons, the Wildcats’ No. 1 boys’ singles player, swept Calaveras’ Chance Tanner by identical 6-0 scores.

“Spencer, he just outmatched his guy from the start,” said Sonora coach Sam Segerstrom. “He’s the leader of our team up top.”

Preps roundup: Kiriluk, Wildcats topple Linden

Serge Kiriluk saved his best performance for the final hole.

Kiriluk sank his only birdie of the match on the par 5, 537-yard No. 9 hole, the toughest hole on the course, and finished with a match-low 39 for medalist honors to help the Sonora Wildcats boys’ golf team pull off a 215-265 victory against the Linden Lions on Tuesday at Mountain Springs.

Bradley Fulkerson, who birdied on the par 3, 177-yard fifth hole, shot a 42. Sam Mays, the Wildcats No. 2 player, registered a 43 followed by Damien Carrabello’s 44. Hank Kolpack finished with a 47.

Preps roundup: Wildcat duo wins MLL net tourney

Sonora’s Spencer Lyons and Augustin Gayar won the Mother Lode League preseason doubles tennis tournament on Saturday in Angels Camp.

The Wildcat duo won four matches without a loss to claim the title.

“They beat everyone with their consistency,” said Wildcat head coach Sam Segerstrom. “They’re really good athletes too. The Amador pair they beat in the final could serve well and were really solid, but I thought we were more athletic.”
