Columbia College Claim Jumper forward Rafe King was not going to be denied.

With 26 seconds left in the Central Valley Conference opener Wednesday night, King drained a deep game-winning 3-pointer with a defender drenched in his face to seal Columbia’s first league win, a 51-48 nailbiter, over College of the Sequoias at Oak Pavilion.

“It felt perfect,” King said. “I saw the guy running after me, but I just focused on my follow through and it went in.”


Cats fall to WR in VOL opener

The Sonora girls were clearly upset after losing to Weston Ranch Wednesday in each team’s Valley Oak League opener.

The Wildcats stood toe-to-toe with one of the league’s best, had them on the run in the second half, but couldn’t hold off the Cougars and lost 75-65 at Bud Castle Gym.

“We worked hard and lost to a good team,” said Sonora head coach Amy Santos. “I told the girls, ‘Don’t hang your heads. We played hard and lost to a good team. You gotta learn from this and move on.’ I’m very proud of their effort and preparation coming into this game. We hung with them and we were right there. This is the VOL. Every game is gonna be a dogfight. We’re gonna earn everything we get.”


BH falls to Buffs, Grizzlies

The Bret Harte Bullfrogs boys’ basketball team dropped two games this past weekend.

In their Mother Lode League opener, the Bullfrogs lost 57-46 to Amador on Friday night in Sutter Creek.

“We struggled scoring in the first half,” said Bret Harte head coach Jeff Eltringham. “I think their physicality got to us. They have a couple of bigger guys that made a difference.”


S’ville’s Brennan, Quirie place at Turlock

Two Summerville wrestlers placed at The Bulldog Classic on Saturday in Turlock.

Senior Andrew Brennan at 126 pounds claimed second place with a 2-1 record, and junior 152-pounder Humphrey Quirie tied for third.

Brennan, the tournament’s No. 2 seed, received a first-round bye, pinned Livingston’s Bryan Negrete in 1:45 in his first match.

In Brennan’s semifinal matchup, he took down Kenny Loehner, of Monache, 15-0 by technical fall. 

“This was a tough semifinal match, and he went out there and completely dominated,” said Summerville head coach Jordan DePaoli. “It was real positive for Andrew to win that handily. He was real successful on top and controlled the match on his feet with several takedowns.”


Bears lose 1st league game in over a year

The Summerville Bears boys’ basketball team suffered its first Mother Lode League defeat in over a year.

Summerville fell 76-59 against Argonaut in its MLL opener on Friday in Jackson.

“They’re a good club,” said Bears head coach Ben Watson. “They do some good things. They can shoot the ball and they have good size.”


Summerville girls fall to Argonaut

The Summerville Bears girls’ basketball team dropped its Mother Lode League opener, losing 49-24 against Argonaut on Friday in Tuolumne.

Argonaut, the defending MLL champions, got out to an early lead, scoring in double digits in the first three quarters and coasted the rest of the way.

“They’re a good team,” said Summerville head coach Dave Woods. “They’re senior loaded, pretty much the same group that went 15-0 last year. We competed OK. We just didn’t shoot the ball well enough. Part of it was their defense.”


Claim Jumpers drub Gavilan to start new year

Columbia College head coach Rob Hoyt and the Claim Jumpers basketball team started the new year on a winning note.

Freshman forward Rafe King scored a game-high 22 points and the Claim Jumpers blasted Gavilan College 67-45 on Saturday in Gilroy.

Summerville graduate Rosendo AmayaWood broke out with 14 points.

“We played a very good game,” said Columbia assistant coach Rick Francis. “AmayaWood probably had his best game and King shot the ball well.”

Sonora outscored Calaveras 10-2 in overtime Monday to survive and defeat the Redskins 51-43 at Bud Castle Gym.

Sonora led throughout the contest until Redskin Sheridan Loverin sank a desperation 3-pointer off the backboard from well beyond the top of the key with 3 seconds left to send the game into overtime.

“As the girls were walking off the court, they had their heads hanging,” said Wildcat head coach Amy Santos. “It was definitely a blow. But we got the girls together and told them, ‘Hey, this is still our place. This is our game.’ And we came out with a lot of energy.”


Preps Roundup: Gouveia leads Skins over Ceres

Kyle Gouveia scored 20 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Calaveras Redskins basketball team over the Ceres Bulldogs 56-43 Monday night at Mike Flock Gym.

Calaveras broke open a close game at halftime with a 15-7 third-quarter run.

“I was real happy with our bench play,” said Redskins head coach Kraig Clifton. “We got 15 points from the bench and we handled their press with minimal turnovers. We still had problems and need to improve on our decision making. It has cost us games this season and will continue to if we don’t improve.”
