Kiriluk placed seventh while shooting a 77 at the Division IV Tournament at Manteca Golf Course.

“He played well enough to advance, which is a great feat,” said Sonora head coach Steve Lee of Kiriluk. “If you ask him how he played, he will shrug his shoulders and say not very good. But out of 67 golfers, who were some of the better golfers around, he came in seventh.”

But Calaveras left-handed pitcher Wyatt Durham forced Preston Leslie to flyout to right field to help lift the Redskins to a 1-0 Mother Lode League victory over Summerville on Wednesday at The Ball Park in San Andreas.

S’ville’s Olsen fires 4 strong innings in Bears win over Frogs

Jesse Jones / Union Democrat Summerville hurler Johnathan Olsen (24) delivers Wednesday against Bret Harte in Tuolumne.
The road back to the baseball diamond has been a long and strenuous journey for Summerville Bear pitcher Johnathan Olsen.

The senior dislocated his throwing shoulder during the middle of football season, cutting short his time on the gridiron and possibly ending his baseball career.

Olsen also tore a few muscles in his shoulder, including his biceps.

With the baseball season more than six months away, the right-hander wasn’t sure if he would be able to return in time for the start of his final year.

“Honestly, I didn’t think so,” Olsen said. “But I wanted to believe I could.”
