Sonora crushes Linden

The Sonora Wildcats walked from their locker room and entered Dunlavy Field in two rows holding hands, side by side through the bleachers and got the motor of 2,000 fans revved up.

Sonora’s Golden Regiment kept the energy high during pregame warmups, blasting tunes and dancing in the north end zone.

Amador snaps Bret Harte win streak

The environment at Dorroh Field on Friday in Angels Camp for a homecoming matchup vs. Amador was as electric as ever.

Fans lined up, 40 to 50 deep outside the gates, prior to the ballgame to get into a stadium that had already reached maximum seating capacity. The band, hardly more than 15 strong, sounded two times the size, and the Bullfrog faithful erupted after a big play from the home team.

Bret Harte faces Amador

The setting at Bret Harte football practice on Thursday was a little off.

The players, typically exuberant and energetic, seemed quiet and distant as they prepared for a Friday showdown vs. Amador.

It was unusual, especially for a team coming into homecoming week off of its second straight Mother Lode League victory — an accomplishment that has escaped Bret Harte since the 2006 season.

Summerville football looks ahead

2017 is going to be a special year for Summerville football. When the Bears take the field two years from now, they will have players who have seen significant varsity playing time as underclassmen — McCormic Banks, Dominic Esquivel, Dawson Robles, Jared Brick, Tres Machado, and the newest sophomore call up, Luke Fulkerson — are being molded as the foundation of the program for years to come.

Sonora hosts Linden in homecoming matchup

Giant Wildcat paws have been displayed in windows of businesses this week throughout downtown Sonora. Each class has constructed their floats and the parade down Washington St. is set for around 2 p.m. today.

It’s homecoming week at Sonora High. Old friends will be reunited. Queens and kings will be crowned. And of most importance, the Wildcats will play a football game again Linden in front of large crowd at Dunlavy Field.

Experience trumps: Veteran ’Cats top upstart ’Frogs

Read more... All too often, experience trumps determination. Such was the case Wednesday night in Angels Camp when the Sonora boys’ and girls’ water polo teams defeated Bret Harte and its upstart program. 
The Sonora girls won 16-1, while the boys were 18-5 victors. Though the ‘Frogs were overpowered by the ‘Cats, Sonora head coach Matt Personius can see good things in the Bullfrogs future.

The two teams are now tied for second place in the MLL at 5-2.

Preps roundup: Sonora volleyball sweeps Amador

The Sonora Wildcats continued its Mother Lode League dominance Monday evening at Bud Castle Gym, defeating Amador 25-15, 25-8, 15-12. 

With the sweep, Sonora has still not lost a set since joining the Mother Lode League in 2014.


Playoffs hopes saved; Wildcats top Buffaloes

Guy Dossi / Union Democrat Sonora goal keeper Anthony Prophet makes a leaping save Monday in the Wildcats’ 2-1 victory over Amador at Dunlavy Field.
 It’s homecoming week at Sonora High School, and homecoming is typically all about football. However, the Sonora boys’ soccer team didn’t get the memo. In a game that the ‘Cats needed to win in order to keep their playoff hopes within reach, they went out and defeated Amador 2-1 Monday night at Dunlavy Field.
“As a whole, this win for Sonora High is great,” said freshman Jacob Schader. “It is homecoming, but we are still going at it with soccer. We are not just giving it all to football.”
