2014 All-Area Girls Hoops: Bullfrog guard Evans anchors First Team

Bret Harte’s one-two punch would not have been possible without Jessie Evans.

If opposing team’s tried shutting down Bullfrog star Kelsey Switzer, Evans was more than capable of knocking down shots.

And in her senior year, she proved she was a big time threat.

Evans scored a season-high 22 points against Summerville in February on 9 of 13 shooting (69 percent) and finished the year averaging 11.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.6 steals and 1.5 assists per game. She tallied in double figures 16 times as a senior.

For her effort and reliability, Evans anchors The Union Democrat’s 2013-14 All-Area Girls Basketball Team.

“It was rough when she was out,” Switzer said of Evans, who missed eight games in the preseason. “We tried to do some different things without her, but it was hard. When she came back, we got a lot better as a team. It was nice to have a player like her at my level to be on the court with me. She can shoot from outside and also on the free throw line.”

Preps Roundup: Cat golfers grow VOL lead

No Valley Oak League golf team will have a better record this season than the Sonora Wildcats.

The Wildcats defeated second-place East Union 210-223 on Wednesday at Mountain Springs to take a three-game lead over the Lancers with just two to play.

Serge Kiriluk backed up his 3-under par effort Tuesday, with a 1-over par 37 to win medalist honors as the lowest score.

“What can you say about Serge, once again he came through under a lot of pressure,” said Wildcat head coach Steve Lee. “Heck, the whole team came through under pressure today.”

Kiriluk shoots 3-under, leads Cats over Buffs

Serge Kiriluk shot a career low 3-under par 33 Tuesday at Mountain Springs to lead the Sonora Wildcats over the Manteca Buffaloes 202-254 at Mountain Springs Golf Club.

Kiriluk chipped in for an eagle at hole six, a 500-yard par 5, and birdied holes five and eight. That was after starting with three straight pars and a bogey.

“That’s definitely the lowest score I’ve seen in my 12 years that I’ve been here,” said Wildcat head coach Steve Lee. “I haven’t seen any high school kid throw up that kind of score. I had a kid awhile back, Kevin Rei, throw up a 34 and I never thought I’d see lower than that. You just shake your head at that. For a high school student, that’s a pretty rare phenomena in our neck of the woods.”

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.”

Frogs swim past Linden

The Bret Harte boys’ and girls’ swim team both knocked off Linden on Friday in a Mother Lode League meet in Angels Camp.

Bret Harte boys won 103-65 and the girls claimed a 93-77 victory.

“Another great meet for the Bret Harte swim team,” said Bullfrogs head coach Lauren Gerber. “The athletes continue to look towards the league championship meet, which is only three weeks away.”

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.”

Bears’ Fish shoots 1-under, but Frogs get win

Summerville’s Jordan Fish recorded an eagle and shot one-under par, but the Bears boys’ golf team was defeated by Bret Harte 223-258 on Thursday at Greenhorn Creek. 

Fish eagled the par 5, 480-yard No. 7 hole and also sank a birdie at No. 9 and shot a 1-under par 35 for medalist honors.

Seawell, Lawrence are Lions All-Stars

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.”
