Deer hunter numbers down at 108 check point

The opening weekend of deer hunting had a lower number of hunters and harvest numbers that were checked in last Saturday at the check station on Highway 108 and Lyons Dam Road (formerly called the Long Barn Check Station). The warm, dry weather may well have been a factor. The number of deer checked in reflects a historically low number of deer aged. 


Summerville soccer cruises past Sonora

Thorsted Field on Thursday had the feel of a Friday night football game. Parking turned into every man for himself. Seating was limited. And fans were excited to root for their team. But there was no football being played. It was a high-energy soccer match between the Summerville Bears and the Sonora Wildcats. 


Bears host Buffs for homecoming

Cut: Maggie Beck / Union Democrat Summerville Bears seniors (from left to right) Jake Fulkerson, Taylor Gempler, Nathaniel Ulvevadet, Lauren Adams, JT McCready, Miranda McKenzie, Kole Elkins, Bailey Nelson (front) is ready for homecoming tonight at Thorsted Field. The Bears host the Amador Buffaloes at7:30 p.m.
Tonight may not be a must win for the Summerville Bears, but it’s pretty close. Amador brings its 2-1 record to Thorsted Field, and if the Bears cannot give the Buffaloes their second loss of the season, they will have a tough mountain to climb through the rest of the Mother Lode League slate.


’Frogs itching to earn Big Game victory

Head Coach Casey Kester and his Bret Harte Bullfrogs were about 10 minutes into a rapid paced passing drill Wednesday when the gasps for air grew louder and the feet became heavier.

“Gentlemen, things are getting sloppy because you’re getting tired,” Kester said. “Sloppiness will not beat Calaveras.”


Defending champ Wildcats open MLL against Argonaut

Cut: Maggie Beck / Union Democrat Sonora senior defensive end/receiver Jacob Dowler takes on a block Wednesday during practice at Dunlavy Field.
 Sonora’s first string defense was lined up against the scout team offense Thursday afternoon and Wildcat defensive coordinator Jed Malone yelled out, “C’mon (Jacob) Dowler, this is all you." The senior defensive end crept closer and, on the snap, charged in on a blitz and was in the face of quarterback Sammy Page in a split second. If he got there any quicker, he would have stolen the snap.


QB Byrd looks to lead ’Skins to another win

In the first game of the season, the Calaveras Redskins hosted the McNair Eagles at Frank Meyer Field. The ’Skins had the ball on their own 29-yard line and senior quarterback Dylan Byrd scanned the defense. He noticed he had single coverage with no safety help to his left guarding senior receiver Trevor Ramirez. He made eye-contact with Ramirez, and changed the play at the line of scrimmage. 


MACTA doubles tourney on tap

The Murphys Area Community Tennis Association (MACTA) is sponsoring a mixed doubles tennis tournament on Saturday, Oct. 10 at Bret Harte High School in Angels Camp and Murphys Wintercreek Facility. The cost is $20 per player and the registration deadline is Oct. 5


Columbia falls to Taft at Oak Pavilion

Maggie Beck / Union Democrat Columbia’s Annie Abenth (13) sends the ball over the net Wednesday night against Taft at Oak Pavilion.
 At times Wednesday evening, the Columbia College volleyball team looked like a well oiled machine. Moves and plays were executed to perfection. Passes were crisp and kills were powerful. At other times, the Claim Jumpers looked like a team that is not very long in the tooth, and is still learning how to play together. 


Preps roundup: Sonora golfers beat BH on links

Sonora’s girls’ golf defeated Bret Harte 199-219 Tuesday afternoon at Mountain Springs Golf Club.

“We did really well and I am real happy with them,” said Sonora head coach Karen Sinclair. “I am really proud.”
