“The girls played very well tonight,” said Wildcat head coach Kim Evans. “We’ve been working on specific things in practice to finish out the league season and it was good to see them turn that corner.”

Soccer Cats shutout Frogs, await playoff seed

For the first time in at least 15 years the Sonora Wildcats boys’s soccer team is headed to the playoffs.

The Wildcats defeated the Bret Harte Bullfrogs 2-0 on Thursday at Dorroh Field in Angels Camp.

“We’re excited to finish our season with a shutout,” said Wildcat head coach Lloyd Longeway. “Bret Harte came out and played really hard and we didn’t play that great.”

It has been a record-setting year for the Summerville Bears soccer program.

Summerville capped off senior night and its regular season with a commanding 7-1 victory over Calaveras on Tuesday at Thorsted Field in Tuolumne to earn the Bears seventh Mother Lode League title in the program’s 31-year history.

Summerville’s undefeated 10-0-2 mark in MLL action marks the first time under head coach Dave Reel that the Bears have accomplished that remarkable feat.

“It’s the first team that I have that’s done it at the high school level,” said Reel, who took over at Summerville in 2004. “With the high school boys, this is awesome. It’s really about them. I’m so blessed to be a part of this and for them to allow me to be a part of their high school memories. These are special moments. You don’t have them often. When you win, and you can win like they have been, it’s incredible.”

Wildcats could play at home in playoffs

Another delay in Measure J bond construction has likely brought more good fortune for the Sonora Wildcat football team.

Hosting in the playoffs wasn’t going to be an option this season until a lawsuit filed against the Sonora Union High School District in early October stalled construction that was set to begin in early November.

The first hearing is set for Feb. 17. The $23 million bond was approved by voters in 2012.

Ziehlke runs wild in Frog win over Livermore

It was a career night for Michael Ziehlke on Friday at Livermore Valley Charter Prep.

Ziehlke rushed for a career-best 313 yards and four touchdowns and threw for another score to help lift the Bret Harte Bullfrogs football team to a 44-0 non-league win.

Bret Harte ran wild to the tune of 535 yards and did not fumble.

Volley Cats bury Argo, stay perfect in league

The Mother Lode League volleyball champion Sonora Wildcats swept Argonaut 3-0 (25-9, 25-14, 25-14) on Tuesday night in Jackson.

Sonora served for 10 aces including three from Makenzee Hope who had a team-high three on 21 service attempts. The Cats also got two aces from freshman Riley Patterson, and one each from Leah Dambacher, Kiana Pisula, Shannon Friend, Angela Gardella and Maddison Stevens.

Patterson added a game-high 13 kills and also made seven digs. Bailey Henington made a 22 digs and Hope added 12. Pisula set up 22 assists and Bella Bergamaschi had 15. Friend added seven kills and Gardella had six.

“It was a nice team win and a great opportunity to have everyone contribute,” said Wildcat head coach Kim Evans. “Argonaut made some great digs and tried to keep the rallies going but with our experienced players we were able to control the tempo of the match.”

4 Cats, 1 Frog medal at Mt. SAC

Bret Harte freshman Kaela Dishion and Sonora Wildcats Shaan French Jr., Thomas Kruetzfeldt and Cassi Land all have one thing in common after this past weekend.

All four — Dishion, French Jr., Kruetzfeldt and Land — earned a medal at the Mt. San Antonio College Invitational, the biggest cross country meet in the nation, on Friday in Walnut.

Ex-Bear Roberson ties Mary TD record

Former Summerville Bear star quarterback Zach Roberson had a performance to remember Saturday for the University of Mary in North Dakota.

Roberson, making his first appearance after missing six games because of an injury, tied a school record with six touchdown passes in a 52-45 win over MSU Moorhead. He also scored on a 3-yard run.

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound, junior signal-caller threw for 460 yards, just 13 shy of another school record. He completed 27 passes and had touchdown throws of 7, 40, 34, 7, 25 and 45.

Cats grab share of MLL title

There was no big party post game Friday night. No raucous celebration or chants of “M-L-L, M-L-L” for clinching a share of the Mother Lode League football title. 

No, the Sonora Wildcats expected to here. Clinching a share of the league title on senior night is just a step toward their larger goal.

“We came into this league expecting to do this,” said Wildcat senior defensive back Carter Denton. “We knew if we executed the way we should, we would do it and here we are.”

“We haven’t really been thinking about that,” said Wildcat head coach Bryan Craig of winning the MLL title. “Our job is to go into playoffs, and then go deep into the playoffs, that’s what we’re focused on.”
