Redskin defender McIntosh helps preserve tie with Frogs

Jesse Jones / Union Democrat Bret Harte’s Lauren Redding (above, at right) dribbles upfield with Calaveras Redskin Maryanne Linneman trailing behind in the first half of Tuesday’s 0-0 draw at Dorroh Field in Angels Camp.
Savannah McIntosh often doesn’t get the credit she deserves for her consistent play as a defender.

The Calaveras Redskin senior’s efforts usually goes unnoticed because her name doesn’t show up on a score sheet. 

But on Tuesday in Angels Camp, her sharp play out of the defensive backline led to numerous passes being cut off. She also provided constant pressure against the Bret Harte forwards in a Mother Lode League showdown.

And it was McIntosh’s game-saving clearance in front of the goal line that helped the Redskins girls’ soccer team battle to a 0-0 draw against the Bullfrogs at Dorroh Field.

“That’s not the first time she’s done that this year,” said Calaveras head coach Rob Leetham. “She’s such a smart defender and she knows where to position herself. Thank goodness for Savannah, she’s definitely the leader of our defense every game.”

Preps roundup: Bears fall in final inning vs. Buffs

The Summerville Bears baseball team suffered a 5-4 setback Friday against Amador in Sutter Creek.

The Bears led 4-1 heading to the bottom of the seventh, but the Buffaloes rallied for four runs.

“I’m just disappointed,” said Bears head coach Larry Gold. “We shouldn’t have lost. We should’ve came away with a win and we should’ve had more hits. We had four and only one made it to the outfield. Our hitting let us down and we fell apart in the last inning.”

Robles goes distance, Farrell goes yard, Summerville tops MLL foe Amador

esse Jones / Union Democrat Summerville’s Bryce Farrell (8, above) is congratulated by teammates Billy Butler (3) and Danny Robles (6) after his fifth inning home run Wednesday against Amador in Tuolumne.
In Bryce Farrell’s at-bat in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Summerville Bear junior chased a low and outside ball that he swung and missed for a strike.

But on his second pitch, the 6-foot-3 righthander squared up on an inside fastball, and powered a solo shot over the left field fence.

Farrell’s home run helped lift the Summerville Bears baseball team to a 6-3 Mother Lode League win over Amador on Wednesday in Tuolumne.

“It felt great,” Farrell said of his first round-tripper of the season. “I knew it was going to be at least a double because I saw the left fielder turn and run. Honestly, I didn’t think it had the height because it was kind of a liner. I was pleasantly surprised when it went out.”

Tioga grad a natural with javelin

Courtesy Photo. Billy Hilton, a former Tioga High Standout, gets ready to throw the javelin earlier this year.
The first time Billy Hilton picked up a javelin in a competitive meet, it was on March 1 at the 2014 Cal State Stanislaus Kim Duyst Invitational in Turlock.

That meet also happened to mark Hilton’s first season with the Cal State Stanislaus outdoor track and field team.

And in his first official attempt, the javelin traveled 202 feet and 4 inches. It was the second best throw of the day and qualified Hilton for Provisionals.

With that throw, the former Tioga High three-sport standout set a new Cal State Stanislaus Warriors school record.

“My thought process was, ‘Let’s get a good one,’ ” Hilton said. “I wanted to get a good throw and work off that. Then I saw it was still going. It ended up being 61 meters — 202 feet. That was the farthest throw I ever had.”
