Seawell, Lawrence are Lions All-Stars

Two high school football players from the Mother Lode have been selected to play in this year’s 41st annual Lions All-Star Football game.

Calaveras Redskin star Mike Seawell and Sonora Wildcat standout Steve Lawrence were both named to the north roster.

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.”

Conklin pitches complete game, S’ville thumps Amador

The Summerville Bears softball team topped Amador 10-0 in six innings on Wednesday afternoon in Tuolumne.

Summerville scored three runs each in the third and fourth innings, and closed out the game, adding two apiece in the fifth and sixth.

“We had some pretty good at-bats,” said Bears head coach Ben Watson. “But they walked six and we scattered a couple of hits. Plus, we started hitting the ball more consistently.”

Frog swimmers sweep Skins

The Bret Harte boys’ and girls’ swim teams both beat Calaveras on Wednesday in Angels Camp.

The boys won 104-66 and the girls came on top 116-54.

“Today was a stellar day for the Bret Harte swim team,” said Bret Harte coach Lauren Gerber. “Coming off of three away meets in the last two weeks, being back in our home pool, the team swam numerous personal bests and were able to place extremely well against Calaveras.”

Tioga grad a natural with javelin

Courtesy Photo. Billy Hilton, a former Tioga High Standout, gets ready to throw the javelin earlier this year.
The first time Billy Hilton picked up a javelin in a competitive meet, it was on March 1 at the 2014 Cal State Stanislaus Kim Duyst Invitational in Turlock.

That meet also happened to mark Hilton’s first season with the Cal State Stanislaus outdoor track and field team.

And in his first official attempt, the javelin traveled 202 feet and 4 inches. It was the second best throw of the day and qualified Hilton for Provisionals.

With that throw, the former Tioga High three-sport standout set a new Cal State Stanislaus Warriors school record.

“My thought process was, ‘Let’s get a good one,’ ” Hilton said. “I wanted to get a good throw and work off that. Then I saw it was still going. It ended up being 61 meters — 202 feet. That was the farthest throw I ever had.”

Sonora senior Grolle setting new Wildcat standards

Steven Grolle has been studying the record times in the 1-mile, 1,500 and 3,000 meters since he was a freshman runner at Sonora High.

And those numbers have always been in the back of his mind.

But after an incredible performance at the 2014 Stanford Invitational this past weekend, Grolle can now erase those marks and etch his name and times next to those events. The senior Wildcat set three new school records in the 1-mile, 1500 and 3000 meter run on Friday and Saturday.

All-Area MVP Gouveia powered Redskins to MLL title, playoffs

If Kyle Gouveia’s basketball career ended at Calaveras High School, he would be remembered by most as a legend.

In a one-point loss to the Sonora Wildcats in late December, Gouveia, a towering 6-foot-7-inch, 240-pound forward, threw down an electrifying jam and shattered a portion of the glass backboard at Mike Flock Gym in San Andreas.

“I think when something like that happens, it’s a combination of timing, power and freak accident,” said Calaveras 12th-year head coach Kraig Clifton. “But he’s extremely powerful. He caught the rim on his way down. It was pretty impressive. It’s something he can carry with him forever and say that he did it.”

Scoring guards Whited, Collamer highlight All-Area First Team

Bret Harte guard Will Whited, the Mother Lode League’s Most Outstanding Player, headlines The Union Democrat’s 2013-14 All-Area Boys Basketball Team.

Whited led the MLL in scoring this past season, averaging more than 23 points per game as a senior. In a January showdown against Summerville, he scored a season-high 34 points often beating defenders by driving to the glass. The 6-foot-1 combo guard shot 56 percent from the field on 13 of 23 shooting and sank all six free throws in that 76-54 Bret Harte victory.

“We struggled so much with scoring,” said Bullfrog head coach Jeff Eltringham. “I saw so many people try to stop him from scoring this season, and he was still able to do it. He didn’t get a lot of help throughout the year. Teams concentrated on him. It seemed like two or three guys were watching everything he was doing. I don’t think many guys faced that kind of pressure like Will did.”

Redskins Walter, Hukkanen toss back-to-back no-hitters vs. Bears

Calaveras softball player Marissa Hukkanen achieved a pitching milestone.

Hukkanen rifled a no-hitter, the first of her high school career, and the Redskins topped the Summerville Bears 13-0 in five innings on Friday in Tuolumne.

“She threw the ball well,” said Calaveras head coach Mike Koepp. “She located her pitches really well on Friday.”

Robles hurls complete game 3-hitter to lead Bears over Redskins

Danny Robles had a pitching performance worth remembering.

The sophomore right-hander tossed a complete game to lead the Summerville Bears baseball team to a 5-2 Mother Lode League win over Calaveras on Friday in Tuolumne.

“He had an outstanding performance,” said Summerville head coach Larry Gold. “He was well in command. He just kept them off balance. He had good command of his off-speed pitches and was hitting the location with his fastball.”
