Preps Roundup: Land sets Cat mark at Stanford

Cassi Land has only been a member of the Sonora Wildcats girls cross country team for a little over two months, but the freshman sensation is already setting new marks for the program.

Land placed third out of 52 in the Division III girls race on Saturday at the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto.

Her time of 18 minutes and 12 seconds established a new Wildcats record on the Stanford course.

Victoria French came in at 54th (20:23) and Kaarina Thompson was 114th (22:10).

“Cassi dropped 30 seconds,” said Wildcats head coach Glenn Bass. “Victoria lost 21 seconds and Kaarina came up with a fantastic 45 second improvement. I was very impressed with the strong finish.”

Volley Frogs beat Lions in 4

The Bret Harte Bullfrog volleyball team didn’t let its lead slip away Thursday night in Angels Camp.

The Bullfrogs jumped out to a 2-0 (25-22, 25-13) lead over Linden, but lost the third game decisively, 25-16.

Just one week ago, Bret Harte won the first two games against rival Calaveras but the Redskins roared back to win the match in five.

The Bullfrogs this time won Game 4, 25-19, and Bret Harte earned its second straight Mother Lode League victory.

Before Thursday’s soccer match against cross-county rival Sonora, Summerville assistant coach Shad Flores handed out a small note with three inspirational quotes to every Bears player.

One by legendary NFL head coach Vince Lombardi read: “The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.”

The other by the Alabama Crimson Tide’s football coach Nick Saban said: “Think about being successful in your position, not on winning. Assume the player you will be playing against is great and motivate yourself to play your hardest.”

And the final phrase belonged to Penn State’s James Franklin: “Focus on the things you can control.”

With those three motivators entrenched and instilled in the minds of the Summerville players, the Bears topped the Wildcats 4-2 in a showdown of Mother Lode League unbeatens at Dunlavy Field.

Claim Jumper volleyers beat West Hills to open CVC

A 3 hour and 40 minute bus drive to Coalinga from Sonora had little effect on the Columbia College Claim Jumpers volleyball team.

Cat volleyers beat Skins in battle of champions

As the defending Division IV Sac-Joaquin Section champions, the Sonora Wildcats volleyball team set an early goal of defeating opposing Mother Lode League foes in three sets.

It’s a lofty expectation, but considering the Wildcats return a veteran squad that also made a deep run at the state title in 2013, it’s only fitting.

And on Tuesday in San Andreas, Sonora executed that game plan in a 3-0 (25-23, 25-17, 25-17) win over Calaveras, the 2013 MLL champs.
