Outdoors: Fewer hunters this year at deer check station

The annual deer check station was set up for opening day last weekend, at Highway 108 and Lyon’s Dam Road.

Retired Wildlife Biologist Jim Maddox spent most of his career being present at the event and estimates the station has been opened there for well over 40 years.

Claim Jumper volleyers beat West Hills to open CVC

A 3 hour and 40 minute bus drive to Coalinga from Sonora had little effect on the Columbia College Claim Jumpers volleyball team.

Columbia earned a 3-1 (17-25, 25-19, 25-20, 25-17) road victory over West Hills on Wednesday to start Central Valley Conference play.

Cat volleyers beat Skins in battle of champions

As the defending Division IV Sac-Joaquin Section champions, the Sonora Wildcats volleyball team set an early goal of defeating opposing Mother Lode League foes in three sets.

It’s a lofty expectation, but considering the Wildcats return a veteran squad that also made a deep run at the state title in 2013, it’s only fitting.

And on Tuesday in San Andreas, Sonora executed that game plan in a 3-0 (25-23, 25-17, 25-17) win over Calaveras, the 2013 MLL champs.

Despite Redskins' third loss, future is still bright

If it is true that it is always darkest before the dawn, then the Calaveras Redskins are poised to see the sunrise in the not too distant future.  

Even with a 53-12 loss to the Modesto Christian Crusaders Friday night at Frank Meyer Field, the future is still bright for the Redskins.

It took Summerville quarterback Bryce Farrell less than a minute to seize the moment.

With 8 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Farrell scrambled for the game-winning touchdown to help lift the Bears to a 32-29 come-from-behind victory over the Bradshaw Christian Pride on Friday at Sonora High’s Dunlavy Field.

Faughnan return symbolizes Sonora through first 3 games

HILMAR — Sonora was in the middle of its 17-point come-from-behind 30-27 overtime gridiron victory over Hilmar on Friday when Wyatt Faughnan produced a punt return that, according to his head coach, represented everything the Wildcats have symbolized through the first three games.

Wildcats win overtime thriller in Hilmar

HILMAR — Down 17-0 at halftime, Sonora could have packed up its football gear and do what so many opponents do against Trans Valley League powerhouse Hilmar, go home with a loss.

And after rallying back to take a 19-17 lead, only to fall behind late in the fourth quarter 24-19, the Wildcats again could have gone home and maybe been satisfied with their comeback effort.

And, the Wildcats most definitely were beaten when they lost a fumble at the Yellowjacket 3 with 1:40 left.

But not this group.
