Holloway hits hole-in-one

When Sonora High senior Emma Holloway hit the first hole-in-one of her short career on Sept. 8 at Phoenix Lake Golf Course, she couldn’t believe it.

After taking a swing with her 8-iron on the Par 3, No. 8 hole, Holloway turned around and grabbed her card to fill it out. It wasn’t until she reached the green that she realized her ball was missing.

Holloway looked around with her teammates Barbara and Donna Pryor and Olivia Partone, but they couldn’t track it down. 

Then Holloway, who has only been playing since her freshman year, took a peek inside the hole — and there it was.

Skins can’t extinguish Flames

LODI — The Calaveras Redskins football team has been quite successful in close games this season, winning its past two games by one score each. But the Redskins were unable to keep that streak alive Friday night and dropped their final preseason game to the Lodi Flames 40-38.     

In a game that had 78-combined points and 12 touchdowns, it was the Redskins defense that came close to making the big play.

“They did exactly what we thought they were going to do,” said Redskins safety Malachi Stockdale. “We didn’t do a good job against the pass, and we were not wrapping up when we needed to make a tackle. We’re just not making plays like we normally do.”

Strong second half not enough for Cats

Sonora football coach Bryan Craig would like to see how his Wildcats would play with a lead.

Well of course he would, but through the first five games of the season, the Wildcats have led for a grand total of four minutes out of 240.

Each game, the Wildcats have been behind at halftime, have rallied to make it close, but couldn’t come all the way back.

Friday night’s game was no different. The Cats fell behind 30-6 at halftime, and then a spirited rally put them within striking distance only to be defeated 45-26 by the Sierra Timberwolves at Dunlavy Field.

“These kids don’t quit,” Craig said. “But if we can find a way to not be down in a game, and play like we did in that second half, we’d probably beat some teams, and beat them bad. It was not a very good game for us, inconsistent play on our part. We got down by a lot and we’re not a team that can come back from that far back, we don’t have that type of offense like they do. They throw the ball all over the place. But I was proud of the way the kids came out after halftime.”

Bears late rally falls short vs. Brookside

STOCKTON — Down 34-14 entering the fourth quarter, the Summerville Bears didn’t flinch or give up against the Brookside Christian Knights on Saturday at Spanos Stadium.

The Bears showed resilience and resolve, and fought back from a 20-point deficit to grab its first lead of the game 35-34 after a successful two-point conversion with 1:27 remaining in the game.

But the Bears could not hold on and lost in the final seconds, 42-35.

“Our kids deserve a lot of credit for coming back,” said Bears head coach Ben Watson. “And battling all the way to take the lead.”

Mother Lode Sports Festival coming in November

In collaboration with Sonora High School and athletic director Rick Francis, the first youth Mother Lode Sports Festival will be hosted Saturday, Nov. 2 on campus.

The festival is a celebration of sports and a benefit and fundraiser for The Central America Sports & Education Project.

Scott Schoettgen, a 2006 Sonora High graduate, is in charge of the philanthropy project and hopes this informative event will gather the sports fanatics in the community to support his cause.

“I want to create an event that is also promoting the quality and accessibility of sports in the Mother Lode area,” Schoettgen said. “That’s really what the event is about, improving the amount of participation in sports and the quality.”

Preps roundup: Cats win 5th straight in VOL

The Sonora Wildcat volleyball team continued its dominance in its last season in the Valley Oak League, beating Manteca 3-0 (25-16, 25-9, 25-15) on Tuesday at Bud Castle Gym.

Wildcat Savannah Lawerence stood out with 10 kills, five digs and three total blocks.

Bella Bergamaschi assisted on a team-high 34 passes and Leah Dambacher had one.

Shannon Friend, Ali Pelfrey and Kelsie Evans all thumped eight kills each.

“We didn’t play our best match of the season,” said Wildcat head coach Kim Evans. “There are definitely things we need to work on in practice. We came out flat and hats off to Manteca, they competed hard and played with a lot of energy and enthusiasm.”

Klatt’s save helps Cats preserve tie

Sonora goalie Andrew Klatt didn’t save his best for last. His best save came first.

Klatt’s all out, sprawling save three minutes into Tuesday’s soccer match against Lathrop helped Sonora earn a 0-0 tie at Dunlavy Field.

“It was dynamite!” said Wildcat head coach Lloyd Longeway of Klatt’s save. “Andrew did a great job of deflecting that ball. He was straight sideways. With what he can do, he’s exciting to watch.”
