'Skins host Diamondbacks tonight

Guy Dossi / Union Democrat Calaveras Redskins wide receiver Trevor Ramirez follows the block of junior guard Nick Quinday during practice Thursday at Frank Meyer Field. The Redskins will host The Union Mine Diamondbacks tonight at 7:30.

Not because the Calaveras Redskins are looking to get its second win of the season and head into Mother Lode League play with a two-game winning streak. It is the biggest game of the season because of the tragic events as a result of the Butte fire, and a community looking for something to lift their spirits.

Claire Caldera led the way with six kills, followed by Sarah Boyer and Grace Fulkerson with five kills.
Julian Craddock had 10 assists, and Fulkerson finished with nine.
“Tonight was our first program sweep, which is always exciting,” said Bears head coach Jennifer Osterhout. “We played like a team from start to finish. Tonight’s game was the first time we truly played our game and did not play at the other teams level. We went at our own pace, tried some new things offensively and kept swinging and communicated effectively through the whole match. This was a great way to end our pre-season before heading into our league opener at Argonaut.”
