The Dodge Ridge Race Team will be recognized today by the Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors for claiming its fifth straight United States Ski and Snowboard Association Far West Central Series Silver Cup despite challenging conditions, namely the lack of snow. The board is likely to approve certificates of recognition to the team and individually to Varun Suklikar, Evan Lear and Stash Perry for first-place wins in their age group. Dodge Ridge skiers compete against teams from Bear Valley, Badger Pass and China Peak.

Bears rally to win again

What a week it has been for the Summerville Bears baseball team.
It’s been almost unbelievable.

When Sonora’s Carter Denton saw the pitch go to the backstop, without hesitation he charged down the third base line.

Preps Roundup: Wildcat netters defeat Bullfrogs

Sonora’s Spencer Lyons stayed unbeaten this season and helped the Wildcats coed tennis team to 7-1 victory over the Bullfrogs at Columbia College.

Lyons earned a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Adeen Gonzalez, who is Bret Harte’s No. 1 singles player and was previously undefeated.

“Spencer played another good match,” said Wildcat head coach Sam Segerstrom. “He’s just a great competitor and has a knack for getting the job done. His opponent was real good at the net and it looked like it might be a good match, but Spencer didn’t let it turn out that way.”

Sonora golfers take 1st at MLL tourney

Serge Kiriluk shot an 11-over par 83 to lead the Sonora Wildcats to a first-place finish on Tuesday in the Mother Lode League Midseason golf tournament held at Greenhorn Creek in Angels Camp.

Kiriluk finished four shots ahead of teammate Hank Kolpack, who fired an 87. 

The Wildcats finished the day with a total score of 452, 55 strokes ahead of the Bret Harte Bullfrogs (507) and 69 shots in front of the Calaveras Redskins (521). Rounding out the scores, Argonaut was fourth at 555, followed by Summerville at 561, Linden at 580 and Amador with a 683.

The Calaveras Redskins girls’ soccer team held off a late, second-half Summerville rally to defeat the Bears 3-2 on Tuesday at Thorsted Field in Tuolumne.

Calaveras received first-half goals from Pookie Deckman, Maddie DeAngelis and Shelby Mason.

“It was exciting,” Calaveras coach Rob Leetham said. “We had a couple of players score goals tonight that aren’t normally our top goal scorers, but Maddie DeAngelis on defense knocked one in and Shelby Mason also scored. It’s nice to see other players contributing.”

Streaking Summerville off to hot start in MLL

Through four games, the Summerville High baseball team is off to its best start at 4-0 since the 2011 and 2013 seasons, the last times the Bears were truly in the hunt for a Mother Lode League championship.

In 2011, Summerville cruised through league play with a 13-2 record. The Bears dropped its first contest, 11-1, to Calaveras before hitting their stride and reeling off 12 straight victories to capture the league crown.

Then in 2013, Summerville opened league competition with a 3-1 record en route to a 9-5 mark and a second-place finish.

With that in mind, how does this year’s squad, although the season is still relatively young, rank among head coach Larry Gold’s teams in his seven years at the helm?

“Skill-wise, they’re just as good as that championship team that we had in 2011,” Gold said. “I think we just have a good group of kids that’s coming through that have played baseball since they were very young. They’ve been playing together for a long time and I think that’s just all coming together.”

Kish pitches Sonora past Linden

Joseph Kish fired a one-hit complete game to lead the Sonora Wildcats baseball team to a 3-0 victory versus Linden on Friday at Bev Barron Field.

Kish, a left-handed senior pitcher, recorded a game-high nine strikeouts in his second outing of the season to help the Wildcats improve to a perfect 4-0 in Mother Lode League play.

Sonora took control of the match in the bottom of the second when the Wildcats scored the game’s opening two runs. The team added an insurance run in the fifth and Kish’s production on the mound and the Wildcats’ defense held the Lions at bay.

Bears rally to defeat Buffs

The Summerville Bears baseball team and its late-game heroics is becoming a trend.

After topping Calaveras 13-12 on Thursday on a walkoff single by Bradley Tyler, Summerville recreated that same magic.

With two outs and the bases loaded in the top of the seventh, Case Dailey smacked a two-run single to right field to help lift Summerville to a come-from-behind 6-4 victory over the Amador Buffaloes on Friday in Sutter Creek.
