 The Sonora Wildcats boys’ water polo team fired away at Oakdale Wednesday, dumping the host Mustangs 10-8. Firing a shot at the Oakdale goal was Dalton Hansten.

The Sonora Wildcat boys’ water polo team sealed a playoff berth and second place in the Valley Oak League Wednesday with a 10-8 victory over host Oakdale.

The Wildcats started strong and lead 3-0 after the first quarter and 6-0 at halftime. Sonora went up 7-0 before substituting freely before the Mustangs got on the board.


Bears earn 2nd straight MLL crown

 The odds were not in Summerville’s favor. 

The Bears soccer team defeated Calaveras Tuesday 5-2 in San Andreas and their only hope of at least sharing a Mother Lode League title rested in the hands of Amador. 


Roundup: Tioga falls to Langston Hughes

The Tioga Timberwolves girls’ volleyball team lost to Langston Hughes Academy 3-0 (25-20, 25-18, 25-19) Wednesday night in Groveland.  

Ashley Harrison lead the Timberwolves with a team-high 18 digs.




Title defended! Sonora earns 9th straight league crown

 The smell of freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies inside of Bud Castle Gym Tuesday night was nearly as sweet as the Wildcats play on the court. 

In a non-stressful match against the Argonaut Mustangs, the ‘Cats clinched their second consecutive Mother Lode League volleyball title, and ninth straight overall title, which includes championships while members of the Valley Oak League.  

Although they took the court knowing the MLL title was on the line, the Wildcats’ demeanor was carefree and jovial. For a team that has competed in section title games, and won a state championship last December, a Tuesday night against Argonaut is just another day at the office. 


Preps roundup:Wildcat polo teams push for playoffs

The Sonora Wildcats boys’ and girls’ water polo teams both play their regular season finales today with the playoffs in mind.

The boys play at Oakdale and are trying to maintain second place in the Valley Oak League while the girls need to beat the Mustangs to secure entry into postseason.


Seniors set standard at Pumpkin Mini Meet

While most avoided the rain showers, 19 Tuolumne County Aquatic Masters swam fast at their annual Pumpkin Mini Meet on Oct. 17 at Sonora Sport and Fitness. 

Two 90-plus year old TCAM swimmers set the standards high for the rest of their teammates by racing in multiple events.

Waterfowl opener may be quieter than usual

The waterfowl season opens in the Balance of State zone Saturday and parts of the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys that have water may sound like a war zone at sunrise. 

It may be a bit quieter than last year, due to the effects of the drought. 


Preps roundup: Volley Cats win, clinch share of MLL title

After getting a road sweep over Linden Thursday night, Sonora volleyball clinched a share of the Mother Lode League title. The Wildcats lead by two games, with two games left to play. 

The ‘Cats took care of the Lions 25-14, 25-13 and 25-14. 


Bret Harte eyes 4th victory vs. Riverbank

Last week, Bret Harte fumbled the ball four times vs. Amador en route to a 34-7 defeat in Angels Camp.

All four fumbles occurred on offense at the beginning of the play during the mesh — a period in a triple option offense like the one Bret Harte uses where the quarterback, running back and swing back meet in the backfield as the football is being handed off. 


Preuss to make his varsity debut

Guy Dossi / Union Democrat Calaverasí Noah Preuss carries the ball in practice Tuesday in San Andreas.
The Trojans had a horse.

President Roosevelt and Truman had the Manhattan Project. 

And the Calaveras Redskins have Noah Preuss. 

Preuss, a 5-9, 185-pound junior running back, is the Redskins’ secret weapon who will be unleashed tonight against the Summerville Bears in Tuolumne. Though he has yet to play a down this season, Preuss could easily be one of the most explosive players in the Mother Lode League. 

He’s just had to wait a year to try and prove it.
