Sonora’s Henington named Most Outstanding

Bailey Henington had a winter season to remember.

Henington, a Sonora High senior, was recognized by the Mother Lode League girls’ basketball coaches as the Most Outstanding Player of the Year after leading the Wildcats to an 11-1 record and a share of the conference title.

“I was very proud of her,” Sonora coach Amy Santos said. “It’s nice because I can’t vote for my own players, so it’s a pretty big honor for her to be recognized by all the coaches in league. To recognize her in that way is a big deal.”

Lyons, the Wildcats’ No. 1 boys’ singles player, swept Calaveras’ Chance Tanner by identical 6-0 scores.

“Spencer, he just outmatched his guy from the start,” said Sonora coach Sam Segerstrom. “He’s the leader of our team up top.”

Bradley Fulkerson, who birdied on the par 3, 177-yard fifth hole, shot a 42. Sam Mays, the Wildcats No. 2 player, registered a 43 followed by Damien Carrabello’s 44. Hank Kolpack finished with a 47.

The Wildcat duo won four matches without a loss to claim the title.

“They beat everyone with their consistency,” said Wildcat head coach Sam Segerstrom. “They’re really good athletes too. The Amador pair they beat in the final could serve well and were really solid, but I thought we were more athletic.”

Moore hurls Skins past Union Mine

Calaveras held a hitting clinic Saturday morning at its San Andreas ballpark, hosted an alumni barbecue for lunch and then the Redskins went out and showed off their refined bat skills in the afternoon, beating the Union Mine Diamondbacks 7-4.

The Redskins scored three runs in the first inning, three in the second and one in the third and held off a late rally in their final preseason tuneup before Mother Lode League play begins this week.

Senior Travis Moore set the tone for the Redskins, throwing five shutout innings before the Diamondbacks put up four unearned runs in the sixth. Moore (2-0) finished off the 3-hit complete game with five strikeouts and one walk.

“Moore was in control the whole game except for a stumble in the sixth which was caused by some sloppy defense,” said Redskins head coach Thomas DeLappe. “He maintained his composure and finished out the game.”
