Frog golfer Hatfield wins MLL MVP

Bret Harte’s Scott Hatfield is the top Mother Lode League golfer this season.

Hatfield, a junior, earned the award after collecting the most points and capped off his outstanding year by placing first with a 76 at the MLL’s End of Season Golf Tournament on Thursday at Mountain Springs.

It was the second time this season that the Bullfrog standout won the league tournament.

“He’s a really good player, and he’s getting better every year,” said Bret Harte head coach Rich Cathcart on Sunday. “I think that he will do well at the divisionals tomorrow."

Skins' Durham shuts out Bears

Maggie Beck / Union Democrat Calaveras pitcher Wyatt Durham fires a pitch against Summerville in San Andreas.
With two outs and the bases loaded in the top of the seventh inning, the Summerville Bears baseball team had an opportunity to tie the game or take the lead.

But Calaveras left-handed pitcher Wyatt Durham forced Preston Leslie to flyout to right field to help lift the Redskins to a 1-0 Mother Lode League victory over Summerville on Wednesday at The Ball Park in San Andreas.

“We definitely had a good scoring chance there, and just didn’t get it done,” said Summerville head coach Larry Gold. “It was a pitcher’s duel.”

With Walters standing out in the circle, Calaveras tacked on two runs each in the first and second inning before adding four in the fourth and one in the fifth to close out its victory.

S’ville’s Olsen fires 4 strong innings in Bears win over Frogs

Jesse Jones / Union Democrat Summerville hurler Johnathan Olsen (24) delivers Wednesday against Bret Harte in Tuolumne.
The road back to the baseball diamond has been a long and strenuous journey for Summerville Bear pitcher Johnathan Olsen.

The senior dislocated his throwing shoulder during the middle of football season, cutting short his time on the gridiron and possibly ending his baseball career.

Olsen also tore a few muscles in his shoulder, including his biceps.

With the baseball season more than six months away, the right-hander wasn’t sure if he would be able to return in time for the start of his final year.

“Honestly, I didn’t think so,” Olsen said. “But I wanted to believe I could.”

The Redskins tacked on three runs in the first, two in the second, three in the sixth and five in the seventh to complete the shutout victory.

Hieb shares experience at Boston Marathon

For one local runner, his inclusion in the Boston Marathon on Monday marked a significant event.

It has been more than a year since the bombing took place near the finish line in 2013, but that attack did not derail the goals of Murphys resident John Hieb.

He ran for himself, but also for the city of Boston in its attempt to heal from that devastating attack.

“It was very inspiring,” Hieb said by phone on Tuesday. “I learned early on when I became a part of the running community that there’s just a lot of great folks that are part of it. It doesn’t matter what political party you’re affiliated with, everybody is focused on running and bettering their times and just being a part of the marathons, especially this one. It was a lot of fun.”

Casteel’s strong effort leads to 10-4 VOL victory

Jesse Jones / Union Democrat Sonora pitcher Tyler Casteel (7) winds up for a pitch during the Wildcats 10-4 win over Lathrop in a Valley Oak League game on Tuesday at Bev Barron Field.
Sonora’s Tyler Casteel came into Tuesday’s game against Lathrop not expecting to play.

The Wildcat junior is fighting for playing time on a strong pitching staff and had thrown just 6 2/3 innings in the last month covering four relief appearances.

“I woke up this morning and didn’t expect to play,” Casteel said. “I didn’t even clean my jersey thinking I wasn’t gonna play.”

But late in the day at school, Casteel was asked an important question by his head coach Scott Johnson.

“I got a text around 12:30 asking if I wanted to start,” Casteel said. “And I said, ‘Yeah!’ I couldn’t have been happier.”
