Wildcat polo hosts today

The Sonora boys’ and girls’ water polo teams are both competing in postseason and for the first time in the program’s history, they will each host playoff matches. 

The girls’ match today is a milestone for the program.


’Cats go for outright title vs. BH

 Near the end of Thursday’s practice, the Wildcats were huddled at the 30-yard line on Dunlavy Field and Sonora offensive coordinator Kirk Clifton held up a stack of helmet stickers and said, “Sammy Page gets 15.”

Clifton wasn’t going off individual touchdowns scored, or yards gained by the quarterback. He was going off the team’s offensive performance over the past few weeks.

 Though moral victories don’t do anything in the standings, the Bret Harte Bullfrog volleyers are feeling pretty good with the playoffs around the corner after giving the Mother Lode League champion Sonora Wildcats a tough battle. The ‘Cats showed why they are the team to beat with a 3-0 sweep, but the ‘Frogs proved they can hang in there with the best around.


’Skins play for postseason tonight vs. Linden

 After the first two weeks of the 2015 season, the Calaveras Redskins were 0-2 and were facing a road game against Modesto Christian, a team they had not beaten the previous two years. Calaveras won 38-25. Since then, the ‘Skins are 4-1 and need just one more victory to qualify for a playoff berth.  

Calaveras will get its chance tonight to get that coveted sixth win on homecoming against the Linden Lions at Frank Meyer Field.


Waterfowl opener solid for hunters

Waterfowl hunters  had a pretty good opening day last Saturday in the Balance of State zone despite the drought. 

Where there was water, there were ducks in most public shooting areas and private clubs in the Merced County Grasslands. 

At the Santa Cruz Club, south of Los Banos, limits were the rule and my son, Bill, of Aptos, was back Sunday, finding it slower but managed a limit by 10 a.m., mostly green-wing teal.


Sonora polo boys beat Oakdale

The Sonora Wildcat boys’ water polo team sealed a playoff berth and second place in the Valley Oak League Wednesday with a 10-8 victory over host Oakdale.

The Wildcats started strong and lead 3-0 after the first quarter and 6-0 at halftime. Sonora went up 7-0 before substituting freely before the Mustangs got on the board.


Bears earn 2nd straight MLL crown

 The odds were not in Summerville’s favor. 

The Bears soccer team defeated Calaveras Tuesday 5-2 in San Andreas and their only hope of at least sharing a Mother Lode League title rested in the hands of Amador. 


Roundup: Tioga falls to Langston Hughes

The Tioga Timberwolves girls’ volleyball team lost to Langston Hughes Academy 3-0 (25-20, 25-18, 25-19) Wednesday night in Groveland.  

Ashley Harrison lead the Timberwolves with a team-high 18 digs.




Title defended! Sonora earns 9th straight league crown

 The smell of freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies inside of Bud Castle Gym Tuesday night was nearly as sweet as the Wildcats play on the court. 

In a non-stressful match against the Argonaut Mustangs, the ‘Cats clinched their second consecutive Mother Lode League volleyball title, and ninth straight overall title, which includes championships while members of the Valley Oak League.  

Although they took the court knowing the MLL title was on the line, the Wildcats’ demeanor was carefree and jovial. For a team that has competed in section title games, and won a state championship last December, a Tuesday night against Argonaut is just another day at the office. 


Preps roundup:Wildcat polo teams push for playoffs

The Sonora Wildcats boys’ and girls’ water polo teams both play their regular season finales today with the playoffs in mind.

The boys play at Oakdale and are trying to maintain second place in the Valley Oak League while the girls need to beat the Mustangs to secure entry into postseason.
